It’s 25 years since Tori Amos Little Earthquakes was released. How strange that feels! It was one of those defining albums for me, something I listened to over and over, and still listen to, all these years later.

Give me life Give me pain/Give me myself again

Oh these little earthquakes/Here we go again/These little earthquakes/Doesn't take much to rip us into pieces

Cause what if I'm a mermaid/In these jeans of his/With her name still on it/Hey but I don't care/Cause sometimes/I said sometimes/I hear my voice/And it's been here/Silent All These...

Years go by/Will I still be waiting/For somebody else to understand

I’m still not a super fan of Tori Amos, but some of her other songs have had a deep impact. Like Spark where she sings of her miscarriage. It was released just after I had mine, and I listened to this song over and over, using it to express what I couldn’t say with my own words. And all these years later I still can’t listen to it without crying.

She's afraid of the light in the dark/6:58 are you sure where my spark is/Here/Here/Here

She's convinced she could hold back a glacier/But she couldn't keep Baby alive/Doubting if there's a woman in there somewhere/Here
