From an exerpt of an interview she did with a Canadian newspaper, she had this to say about her work:
"My songs are really about the human condition, a feeling of polarity, confusion, beauty, sadness, despair, love, unrequited love. These (are) historical human issues that people have been writing about ... to express themselves, and come to terms with their own inner landscape."
You know, I think that's what I write about, too.
For an amazing performance of "Why," check out this youtube link. You will be blown away: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7UdPVjU41Q
Has anyone noticed that "Why" could be easily applied to the Spuffy relationship? I was reading over the lyrics and this sounds like a song Spike could sing in season 6. Take a look: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/annielennox/why.html
I'm also going to Carnegie Hall this Saturday to see a concert with Ravi Shankar and his daughter Anoushka. Damn, Indian music rocks. The sitar rocks. Ravi rocks. The next few weekends...yup, they rock, too.
