Crucify by Tori- #toriamos

Remember I wrote about Tori Amos as an inspiration to my music? I found the crucify video which got me reminiscent of the glorious days of MTV back in the day when we knew the videos of all famous songs.

Here’s the video:

And of course I will give you my favorite lyrics of this song:

You’re just an empty cage girl
If you kill the bird (…)

Every day
I crucify myself
Nothing I do is good enough for you
Crucify myself
Every day
And my heart is sick of being in chains

// Tori Amos video som påminner om tiden då MTV var kung och jag kände till varenda video till de populära låtarna. Det var tider det!


Blood roses – Tori Amos

Well, this blog is also totally about my inspiration for my own music. And how can I not write something about those amazing artists out there that I totally adore? Like Tori Amos!

My favorite lyrics from the song Blood Roses (scroll down for the video):

Can’t forget the things you never said
On days like these starts me thinking
When chickens get a taste of your meat girl
Chickens get a taste of your meat yes

You gave him you blood
And your warm little diamond
He likes killing you after you’re dead
You think I’m a queer
I think you’re a queer …

I chose this song just because it’s only her and the piano.When I recorded my music for my album I had a hard time finding reference music that had few instruments but ofcourse Tori Amos have had those types of albums. When I have referenced to her as an inspirational source I have heard that the inspiration also comes through in my music which for me is a huge statement I am truly happy for!

// Tori Amos är verkligen en artist som inspirerat mig mycket och vars musik tilltalar mig. Musiken är i vissa album avskalad vilket har varit en bra resurs när jag spelade in mitt album. Jag har också fått höra att det hörs att jag har hennes musik som inspiration vilket såklart är mycket glädjande.

Texten är från hennes låt som syns i videon, Blood roses.

Thank you toriamosrules1 for the video!
