    I need to see how my day unfolds so no promises but yes I’m interested. Must dig out the lyrics booklet for this.

    I seem to have two cd editions having looked. A standard cd jewel case one plus a box set that I see has postcards, a DVD and a map with the lyrics on the back.

    *oh which is what Jiva just posted a pic of!

    I bought a 'special edition' version from eBay a couple of years ago just to get that map which we have now framed on the wall :D

    Absolutely, I'll put a YouTube playlist together. I didn't want to scare anyone off in the first post though :D

    This has put me FIRMLY in the mood for a banshees lunchtime, so I’m starting with one of my faves.

    One that didn't make the cut - bside Operation Peter Pan. It's not one that's ever stuck with me really but it's pleasant enough

    Mountain was only released low quality through her Scarlet's Walk microsite. It's a real shame it wasn't on the A Piano collection in better quality.

    There's some debate over whether the first line is "Run he said, the shore will take us" (which is what it sounds like to me) or "Bunny slippers sure can take us" (which is what she seems to sing when she does it live)

    I loved “Where’s Scarlet?” written by Neil Gaiman for the tour book.

    Slightly off topic but do you remember the awful blogs for the dolls during the American Doll Posse promo? I wonder if they are even still online or if the sites hosting them are now defunct!

    I hated American Doll Posse so much at the time that I decided not to go to the tour. Which I now regret. Madame T was ahead of her time with the archetypes and personae.

    Good detective work! They were borderline unreadable but I'm glad she presumably had a nice time writing them :D

    I’ll get my map, board, marker and drawing pins ready to chart this journey in prep for me possibly making this.

    I’m worried I don’t have an adequate amount of pins now or adequate variety of colours.

    I know people seem to hate Gold Dust but I really like it. There’s just no need for it though.

    1. Amber Waves

    Well let's start with a song about making soft porn, shall we?

    It's an interesting song to start with, but it sets the scene of a somewhat seedy America. Capitalism has taken us here: where the porn director of king and women are commodities.

    I remember being disappointed with 'Amber Waves' when I first played the album. It just didn't have that Tori 'opening track' wow factor that all her previous studio albums did. I had to listen to the whole album to 'get' it.

    You say "there's not a lot
    of me
    left anymore -
    just leave it alone.
    But if you're by and you have
    the time, tell the Northern
    Lights to keep shining
