Nik’s Music Almanac

Totally Irrelevant and Off-Topic

Fiona Apple

So Fiona Apple takes alot of flak, maybe more than her fair share. Sure, she's a bit weird, but the bottom line is she's an indie rocker who was co-opted by the MTV industrial complex and didn't know WTF to do.

Another singer that I have a hard time getting perspective on, since listening to her songs sometimes brings back all these emotions from darker days. Less so than other singers though.

So she's good, especially her first two albums. But maybe you just needed to have experienced the 90s to realize how out there she was compared to the rest of the pack.

Sounds like: The 90s. Before all this weird crap happened.

Lyrics:

Baby. No not “Baby” anymore.
If I need you, I'll just use your simple name.
Only kisses on the cheek from now on,
and in a little while, we’ll only have to wave.
