Saturday Song for the Season with Tori Amos

I have lots of other things to blog about but the phrase from an old song, “We need a little Christmas–right this very minute” keeps coming to mind. I’ll share that one soon enough but as my sweetheart is napping on the sofa, a YouTube playlist of Tori Amos songs reeling away on the TV, this came to mind. I don’t know why I have so rarely shared Tori on my Music Mondays or Saturday Songs but she remains one of my favorite musicians. I’ve seen her in concert twice with Brian. Much of what she performs in her is her own amazing and original material but what she does with her cover songs is equally spellbinding. You can find footage of her singing this live but I just need some simple and clear notes of joy and hope this evening, even if they are tinged with recent sadness and concern for the future.

Whatever you celebrate, I wish you joy and peace, my friends.
