    I also maintain that this and "To The Fair Motormaids of Japan" were at one point the same song, or at least came from the same place, even if "Motormaids" is nowhere near as powerful.
    I used to consider Abbey Road my favorite Tori song, I listened to it a lot during a rough time I was having. Most nostalgic, bittersweet piano I ever heard. Motor Maids is amazing too though, and I really can't pick favorites from that special class of songs that you talk about -- for me it's the Pele era of Never Seen Blue, Beulah Land, Motor Maids, Cooling, Abbey Road and the other song she did from the same session, Oomla Boomleigh (which is a nice, light comedown after the gut punch of Abbey Road.) Could you imagine an EP of those in 1997??!
