Angry Girl Music Of The Indie Rock Persuasion

13 Mar

I’m a die-hard Fiona Apple fan.  You know how some people feel about Yankees baseball? Like it’s sacred?  Like it’s personal?  Like I-Would-Get-Into-A-Fight-With-You-About-It-Because-It’s-Everything?

That’s how I feel about Fiona Apple.

For Caitlin’s birthday this year I got us tickets to the Fiona Apple concert at The Greek Theatre.  It was an epic night full of tears, “I am woman,” and Fiona Apple dancing.

(For those of you unfamiliar with Fiona Apple dancing just picture throwing your body and hair around in an interpretative, distressed way.  It’s something I practice often.)

It’s hard to say favorite when it comes to Fiona, because, as Caitlin so eloquently stated, “My life is a Fiona Apple song,”  but I attempted anyway because I’m brave like that.

My Top 5 Fiona Apple Songs Of All Time:

1. Criminal

This is the quintessential Fiona song.  Her magnum opus, if you will.  I was shocked and saddened when she didn’t perform it at her concert and have since added its absence to my list of Things I Will Never Recover From.

2. Werewolf

For this song alone you should buy Fiona’s new album– The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do.

Can we all take a moment to reflect on her album titles?  Wow, Fiona.  Wow.

3. Shadowboxer

Angry Fiona, which is best Fiona.

4. Get Gone

“How many times can it escalate til it elevates to a place I can’t breathe?”

5. Paper Bag

My personal, all-time, number one, best-of-the-best, favorite Fiona Apple song.  I’ll never get enough.

Honorable mentions: Sleep to Dream, Please Please Please, Extraordinary Machine, Tymps.

What is your favorite Fiona Apple song?

    Jilliano! I lovelove Paperbag and might be accountable for 175 of its views on youtube. Whenever I stop by this blog, I find that we love mostly the same things now- even though we lost touch.
