yo george & beauty of speed

yo george & beauty of speed
April 16, 2007 MICHAEL KNUDSEN

hey everyone! the latest tori amos album american doll posse releases two weeks from tomorrow (i’ll actually be in NYC that day (may 1st) i can’t wait to head back east for a few days!) just this past friday ms. amos revealed more about isabel who is her most outwardly political character on the album (you can read her blog) ms. isabel is also the character in charge of the first song off the album entitled yo george and i’m sure you can all take a guess at who she is talking about…

Isabel, a photographer, is a reflection of Artemis and is the most outwardly political of the bunch. She opens the album with “Yo George,” a shout-out to our Commander-in-Chief, questioning what horribly dark road we’ve been led down and closes the CD with the anti-war anthem, “Dark Side of the Sun.”

tori also recently performed a few new & old songs over in the netherlands – i’ve offered up an .mp3 of one of the new tracks sung live called beauty of speed which you can listen to below! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!

yo george

I salute to you Commander

And I sneeze

Cause I have now an allergy

To your policies it seems

Where have we gone wrong America

Mr. Lincoln we can’t seem to find you anywhere

Out of the millions

From the desserts to the mountains

Over prairies to the shores

Is this just the madness of King George

Yo George

Is this just the madness of King George

Yo George

Well you have the whole nation on all fours
