BitchTapes: Tori Amos, Cover Artist

feminist mixtapes

I first discovered Tori Amos when I was a teen girl trying to make sense of the world. Her music guided me through the lows and embellished the highs, and to this day she is my favorite living musician. I also love cover songs, so the fact that Tori frequently reinterprets other artists’ work is the icing on my fandom cake. Here are some of my favorites that she’s done, along with the name of the original artist. And trust me, there are plenty more where this came from.


  1. Free Fallin’/Building a Mystery - Tom Petty and Sarah McLachlan mash-up

  2. I Ran (So Far Away) - A Flock of Seagulls

  3. Common People - Pulp

  4. Famous Blue Raincoat - Leonard Cohen

  5. Copacabana - Barry Manilow

  6. Frozen - Madonna

  7. Can’t Get You Out of My Head - Kylie Minogue

  8. Desperado - Eagles

  9. We Found Love - Rihanna/Calvin Harris

  10. We Belong - Pat Benatar

tori covers

I suggest picking up a copy of her covers album "Strange Little Girls". It's sublime and severely under-rated. There's some great tunes on there.

I think this is a great tone,

I think this is a great tone, with countries outside the USA but my friends in Asia also enjoyed her tone
