30 Day Music Challenge: Day 1 – My Favourite Song

Tori Amos – Cooling

“Is your place in heaven worth giving up these kisses?”

“Favourite” used to be a difficult choice, and one I never actually made until I heard and got to know this. It’s one of the most breathtaking songs I know, with some of the most beautiful lyrics ever written. Tori has a tremendous capacity to both break my heart and heal it, this song does both. It’s my favourite because I know it, down to every last word, and I don’t mean that in a recital sense.

It never appeared on any albums, though a live version was on the second disc on To Venus and Back, and it also appeared as a B-Side to the single Spark. There are some stunning live versions out there, but I wanted to show the song in the first incarnation that I heard it.

About Satellite for Entropy

My thoughts are fish, all swimming about and prone to scattering swiftly. Some of them are pretty but not all of them are gold. Some have teeth; some travel in gangs and with a single school of thought; some are haphazard loners, darting about the place randomly and to no obvious purpose. But they're all slippery little suckers. Sometimes, I get lucky and find myself with a good grasp on one, long enough to remember what it looks like before releasing it back into the wild.
