A rare (at least lately) musical post

Fiona Apple's new album, which I like, got me listening to her previous records, which I also like.  Heartfelt, piano-pounding singer-songwriters aren't always my thing.  But if you compare her, say, to Carole King, not only does she do pretty well (although King at her early peak was great), but it even makes the modern era come off pretty well compared to back then.  Apple is fanciful and all over the place in a good way that one might not have found from her precursors, or at least the commercially viable ones.

Here's a version of one of her best songs, from the Letterman show, with an amusing but somewhat sad short interview at the end.
