"Caught a Lite Sneeze," "Crucify" and "God" (Tori Amos). All of these songs hold special meaning for me. I felt very awkward and unattractive as a teenager, and Tori Amos made me feel powerful and creative. She is beautiful in an atypical way. Her TALENT is the thing that was most important. To this day she is my favorite artist.
