i could swallow the seas to wash down all this pride

I know I don't mention her often, but I'm a huge Fiona Apple fan. Not only is her music fantastic, but her videos always have the most intriguing, editorial, artistic and stunning quality to them. You want to jump inside and join in, even though she looks miserable. I find them inspirational on a number of levels. Enjoy two of my favourites.

Fiona Apple Criminal video

Criminal especially intrigues me. It's so sexual but in such an organic, non-plastic way.

I've never been a huge Fiona fan, but I do like these videos a lot.

Love Fiona..wonder how badly American Idol wanna bes could mess up her songs? Cringe to think it.

Freakishly, I enjoyed last weeks AI performances..but mainly just Jason Castro. Of course, he could have stood on stage and said nothing and I would have cheered him on..but his OVER THE RAINBOW was exceptional.

I love Fiona Apple. Have you heard "Ugly Girl"? You MUST if you haven't.

Criminal was one of my fav songs back in the 90's!!! Love the video too... I'm feeling a little bit old now hehehe

Secretista said...

Interesting videos... I'm not a Fiona fan though, but she's got talent!

Sister Libby said...

I would kill for Fionas eyes. And her brain...

jess said...

I've only seen Fiona once when she opened for Coldplay last year. She has a really unique voice, and music videos too!

I hope you had a grand weekend! :)Q

I'm a Fiona Apple fan as well. There was a time when I needed "Tidal" to get me through. In some ways she knows who I am. "Never is a Promise" or "Sullen Girl" could be my favorites but the entire record is amazing.

WAT said...

Fiona Apple, certainly an original. How old is this girl now by the way? She holds the record I believe, for the longest album title in music history.

Now I love you even more. I looooooove Fiona Apple. Her amazingness has gotten me through some rough (and fun) times through the years. Sigh.

maya said...

dulcegal said...

WendyB said...

Love her.

Thomas said...

I'm old enough to remember the first coming of Fiona Apple. The Criminal video ruined many a young man.

Z. said...

I absolutely adore Fiona, and am in complete admiration of her lyrical ability. It often borders on spoken word poetry! I always felt that she was articulating something that I didn't know how to just yet (does that make sense?).
Oh, and this is my first time commenting here, but I've visited before and I really like your blog. Look forward to reading more!

Carolina Lange said...

She is so talented!

something I love about blogging is that you can see a post and it will spark your interest in something, and then you look up that something, and you come to love that something.

I've heard of Fiona Apple a lot, but just never really got around to listening to her music. Then seeing this post made me do it and now I am in awe of her. Gracias!
