((TORI AMOS' NEW ALBUM, STRANGE LITTLE GIRLS." IS MADE UP ENTIRELY OF COVERS OF SONGS WRITTEN BY MEN . ONE OF THE SONGS CHOSEN WAS "RAINING BLOOD," BY THRASH METAL GIANTS SLAYER. THE SONG WAS INSPIRED BY AMOS' CONCERN ABOUT THE TREATMENT OF WOMEN IN AFGHANISTAN. IRONICALLY SHE RECORDED THE SONG MONTHS BEFORE THE TERRORIST ATTACKS ON SEPTEMBER 11TH.
S/U Tori Amos "Raining Blood"
TORI AMOS I had been reading about Afghanistan and the changes that had been put into place. where woman that had been Doctors, Teachers. Um they weren't treated as woman any more.
VO THE PLIGHT OF WOMEN IN AFGHANISTAN MAY HAVE BEEN THE INSPIRATION BEHIND TORI COVERING THE SONG BUT IN HER OPINION THE STIFLING OF PERSONAL LIBERTIES IS A UNIVERSAL PROBLEM.
TORI AMOS it's any place in the world where you are not given freedoms because of your sex or your sexuality.
Music: Tori Amos "Strange Little Girl"
THIS IS AN UNUSUAL PROJECT FOR AMOS...THE CONSUMMATE SINGER/SONGWRITER WHO FOUND A CHALLANGE IN THE SONGS SHE COVERED.
TORI AMOS Seeing the songs through the men's eyes and what it meant to them made me hear them differently. That's sort of another little layer that I discovered while I was in the thick of it.
Tag TORI ALSO COVERS THE BEATLES "HAPPINESS IS A WARM GUN", NEIL YOUNG'S "HEART OF GOLD" AND EVEN RAPPER EMINEM'S "97 BONNIE & CLYDE." SHE'S ALSO JUST KICKED OFF A NORTH AMERICAN TOUR - SHE'LL BE ON THE ROAD IN THE U.S. THROUGH NOVEMBER. IN NEW YORK I'M REBECCA RANKIN.))
