Tori Amos – New Album

The photo of Tori Amos hit the Web Tuesday and quickly became a meme — that is, an object of blogger scrutiny, water-cooler conversation and bulletin-board incredulity that ranks right up there with, well, Britney’s freshly shaved head.

In it, the American-born, England-based singer-songwriter — notable for both her piano-driven pop and naked emotionalism — is photographed with a Bible in one hand and the word “shame” scrawled across the palm of the other. Looking willfully weirded out, she stands in front of a suburban tract home wearing a shimmering, burgundy-colored dress; a trickle of blood wends down her leg to her broken high-heel shoe strap.

The image (at www.toriamos.com+and countless other sites) serves as a viral marketing ploy — hey, it worked! — for Amos’ ninth studio album, “American Doll Posse,” which she wrote and recorded in Cornwall, England, her home. The CD hits record stores on May 1, ahead of a world tour set to kick off in Rome on May 28.

But it is hardly out of character for the woman Rolling Stone describes as “music’s most famous woodland nymph,” who has dabbled with narrative photography before — most notably in the series of character shots that accompanied her 2001 album, “Strange Little Girls.” For that project, Amos concocted a unique female persona — glamazon, nerd, housewife, butch, etc. — for each of its 12 songs.

Unrequited – Ani Difranco

he had all kind of reasons
why she was unable to love him
she was just too young
she was too high strung
she was afraid of commitment
but all of the theories
that he recited
played like the song
of the unrequited

baby, how long's it been now
since you held me to your chest
and told me that you love me
more than all the rest
it's such a shame that you won't talk to me
cuz i won't repeat after you
i believe that there is more to life
we coulda loved each other through
but i was afraid of commitment
when it came to you

i'll tell you, if there is one instinct
i just can't get with at all
it's the urge to kill something beautiful
just to hang it on your wall
are you just too young
are you too high strung
to actually follow through
on all the love you said you had
baby i never lied to you

is all or nothing
the best we can do?
