This Wednesday, I’ll be seeing Tori Amos in concert for the first time. Her music was such a big part of my growing-up. I was around 12 or 13 when I first heard “Silent All These Years.” Although I didn’t understand the depth of her lyrics until I was older, I still consider it my teenage angst song. I admit, I haven’t listened to a lot of her new stuff, but I can’t deny she can still play a mean piano–and that voice!

In honor of my first Tori Amos concert, here are my top 10 songs in no particular order. Thanks to Calico in Transition for letting me borrow her Music Monday idea!
