(Top 101) #39. Gold Dust – Tori Amos

Tori returns to the Countdown with “Gold Dust.”  It’s my second all-time favorite Tori track, which is saying something with her musical canon.  But really, it is something else. 

Like pretty much all of Tori’s songs, lyrical mysteries abound, and you’re never exactly sure where you stand (Who the heck is Laura Mars?), but really, it’s the feeling behind the lyrics that really matters with Tori, and there’s no question Tori’s captured a piece of truth here.  It may be enigmatic, but it somehow only adds to its sad beauty.

How did it go so fast

You’ll say as we’re looking back

And then we’ll understand

We had gold dust in our hands…
