Tori Amos - "'97 Bonnie & Clyde"

Tori did an album of all covers because she had to release a few more albums to get out of her contract with a record company that was treating her unfairly and she didn't want their dirty mitts all over her own material. So it was a concept album, each song was a song written by a man, but re-told from the voice of woman instead.

In the case of this song, a song originally by Eminem, it's a song about a guy killing his ex-wife and then disposing of the body and bringing their young daughter along for the journey and making her feel like an accomplice, which is the most disturbing part. But instead of it being from the perspective of the man, the killer, it's the perspective of the wife who is now dead in the trunk of the car and hearing the words her murdering ex-husband is saying to their little girl. As if the song wasn't disturbing enough originally, as Eminem is living out a fantasy of killing his ex-wife because he's so mad at her, now we see it from the perspective of a woman with a psychopathic ex-husband and as a mother knowing her young daughter will grow up with him and how it will affect her.

It's creepy beyond belief and I try not to listen to it very often. But the creepiness is exactly what she was going for with it, she wanted to reveal just how disturbing this music can be, and show the consequences of some of the male rage in music. And as you might remember, back in 2001 when this album was released, there was a heck of a lot of that on the airwaves.
