Congrats Tori on your number 1 US dance single - Flavor ! Reminded by Peter R

She rarely releases dance mixes but when she does they are epic....

Professional Widow (Armand Van Heldon) - perhaps one of the best dance tracks ever... Such a fan of this track...

Other great remixes that I like are:

Jackie's Strength (Wedding Cake Club Mix)
Don't Make Me Come to Vegas (Timo on Tori mix)

I'm a huge Tori fan!

Great new interview here.

I'm excited to hear she is working on a new non-classical album. Her classical albums didn't really do it for me. I like her more pop based stuff with a band rather than an orchestra.

Josh Pinder 03-03-2013 19:34

I think i may give her a try...her interview their and her mannerisms remind me a bit of our Lady ]\/[adonna! that inspired feel you know? a natrual quirkiness but genuinity....and Little Earthquakes i have heard bits of...but i do think i need to venture here :D

Yes, Little Earthquakes is great. I would also recommend From the Choirgirl Hotel. It has some of my favourite songs by her, Jackie's Strength, Northern Lad and Playboy Mommy. It's very Tori, but it also has a strong pop accessible element. Under the Pink is also really good and quite accessible. For me, her earlier records are definitely better. The last couple of records have their moments but are sort of missing something for me. They're great for us hard core fans, but I wouldn't really recommend them for someone new to Tori.

You're not alone! The Switzerland concert sounds great. I've seen her live many times, but I didn't see the last tour because it was with the string quartet which is not my thing. I want to see her again either solo on the piano or with the band. I love how she always changes the set list. You never know what she's going to play. I think her best concerts are with the band but where she does a group of songs in the middle solo. I take it this Swiss concert was just her solo on the piano.

boysforpele 17-03-2013 09:07

Your certainly not alone....

I was unaware of the switzerland concernt..... Wow what at awesome set list. The conclave track is excellent too... I love how she has mixed some of her own songs, covers around a topical theme. Genius.

I love Tori. Sounds a bit silly but her music got me through a really bad latter half of last year. I saw her live for the first time in October and she was incredible. I do wish the first time I saw her was when it was just her and not an Orchestra though.

That_Guy 17-03-2013 16:32

I've seen her live a lot, and the best was definitely solo. Dublin 2010. I'll never forget it! Do people enjoy Gold Dust? I think it's a lovely album, especially Marianne, Snow Cherries and Flavor.

Gold Dust is the one that has the re-recordings of her older songs, isn't it? That's the only Tori record I never bought. Is it worth getting if you already have the original versions? I love those songs original versions, so not sure if I would like the re-recordings. Are they that different from the originals? It's become kind of a trend to re-record your old songs, but I don't get the point.

Some are different and some are quite similar. Flavor and Precious Things are quite different but in a good way. You should definitely get it! Try listening to the new Flavor and see what you think.

So, after working on The Light Princess for years, I think it's finally getting an autumn release in London. I'm delighted for her as she's been doing it for so long!

Tour t-shirts and programmes
 
Hi - I'm a long time Tori fan but due to circumstances I'm having to have a bit of a clear out. I've got quite a few UK tour t-shirts and programmes available. You can see them here:

Thanks

Nice collection John, but your prices are ridiculous if I'm honest. 50 for The Beekeeper tour book?

Utterly loving her collaboration with the Bullitts

Terry Hesticles 05-07-2013 01:31

She is one of the nicest most genuine artists ever I think

That_Guy 05-07-2013 13:45

The Bullits song is great. She plays the piano in it. She needs to take a leaf from their production book!
