Hey Fiona Apple…Get Out Of My Head!

Category: , By Glamour Diva & galaxyMafia
I love Ms. Apple. I’ve loved her ever since the first time I heard Sleep To Dream from her 1996 CD, Tidal. So much anger and angst wrapped up in a cute little ball of a white girl. I feel ya FiFi (although maybe not so much on the little ball of a white girl part)! In fact, when I divested myself of my then lover I used the lyrics from that song in a fiery email that was, as you might expect, not well received.

That made me happy!

Anyway, now I have her current CD, Extraordinary Machine, which is AWESOME! Ms. Apple is older and wiser now (and still cute as a button – bitch!) but no less forthcoming with the scathing, yet beautifully crafted comebacks.

The song below is one of my favorite favorites from her current CD. Sing it FiFi!

Get Him Back

One man, he disappoint me
He give me the gouge and he take my glee
Now every other man I see
Remind me of the one man who disappoint me
[Ladies I know we can all relate to this!]

But wait till I get him back
He won't have a back to scratch
Yeah, keep turning that chin
And you will see my
Face as I figure how to kill what I cannot catch

So I say, and on I go
To another one to disappoint me so

Next one up, a contemptible snob
He live to put things in their place
He did a commendable job
He put himself so low
He can hardly even look me in the face
[I actually had this one! Man did I hate him!]

O, he made my blood just burn
I flipped so far, I thought that I would not return

But the last one I had who was getting my hopes up
I might've been a little fast to dismiss
I think he let me down, when he didn't disappoint me
He didn't always guess right, but he usually got my gist
[I haven’t met this one yet but I am so looking forward to it!]

So wait till I get him back
I'm gonna bring him home and I'll watch him unpack
Yeah keep turning that chin
And you will see my face is fixed on the one
I'm gonna get back

I'm gonna get him back
I am
I'm gonna get him back
I really am

I guess the first thing I have to do is get one, then unceremoniously dump him so I can 'get him back'… – GD

    I loved Tidal too. I remember hearing after it came out that she had been raped as a teen, which would explain the emotion in her music and lyrics. Knowing of her experience (do you think it's true?) caused me listen to her differently. I look forward to hearing Extraordinary Machine.

    Thanks for the review!
