Tori Amos- Gold dust (with a fuck you at the end:)
This will forever be one of my favorite songs.
“Gold Dust is very much about being other people and feeling how they feel. And feeling how you felt in another time, when you’ve been in another place. And it really isn’t your past because somehow these frames are written on your body and they’ve made you what you are. Nothing is gone, it’s just on your body map. And this project has been very much about finding my - i guess, my body map. I think if you’re going to really write a work about a road trip and about America and who she is, then you have to go see her in all her glory and all her (laughs) bad fast food joints and good truck stops and everything in between. You know, you can’t just go to the coast and then fly, do the fly over country trip. You really have to experience it. And the crazy thing about it is, the gold that we found - you find it so much when you’re not even…thinking that you’re in it. You turn around and see this pair of eyes and somebody puts a bowl of chili in front of you and it’s heaven. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
