Anyone heard her Mariner Apartment Complex song? That one borrows heavily from The Love We Make

NOt one of her best, but don't think it deserves the predictable trashing it gets here.

Tiresome tirades. As if Prince never "borrowed" anything

I looked up the lyrics without listening to the song:



"Let Me Love You Like A Woman"


I come from a small town, how about you?
I only mention it 'cause I'm ready to leave LA and I want you to come
Eighty miles North or South will do
I don't care where as long as you're with me and I'm with you and you let me

Let me love you like a woman
Let me hold you like a baby
Let me shine like a diamond
Let me be who I'm meant to be
Talk to me in poems and songs
Don't make me be bittersweet
Let me love you like a woman
Let me hold you like a baby
Let me hold you like a baby

I come from a small town far away
I only mention it 'cause I'm ready to leave LA and I want (need) you to come
I guess I could manage if you stay
It's just if you do I can't see myself having any fun, so

Let me love you like a woman
Let me hold you like a baby
Let me shine like a diamond
Let me be who I'm meant to be
Talk to me in songs and poems
Don't make me be bittersweet
Let me love you like a woman
Take you to infinity
Let me love you like a woman (Let me hold you like a baby)
Take you to infinity
Let me love you like a woman (Let me hold you like a baby)
Take you to infinity

We could get lost in the purple rain
Talk about the good old days
We could get high on some pink champagne
Baby, let me count the waves

Let me love you like a woman
Let me hold you like a baby
Let me shine like a diamond
Let me be who I'm meant to be
Talk to me in songs and poems
Don't make me be bittersweet
Let me love you like a woman


Now everyone else won't have to listen too. biggrin

Sly is talking about Purple Rain. wink
All kidding aside, it's not a great song, but I don't hate it either. She looks a bit sleepy in the video and that's also how she sounds. I thought I saw Joan Baez come by about two minutes into the song.
O tempora! O mores!

Not going to bash her, but Lana Del Rey doesn't exist in my world.

Fair enough?

excuse my laziness like the person who didn't want to listen. but i've heard she has good stuff now and then. my curiosity is low but if someone could cherry pick a list of what they feel is her BEST stuff (like if you were trying to impress someone with her and had 3-5 shots).

disclaimer, after forever hearing about how she was a genius, etc. and that Hounds of Love was a must listen, i finally gave Kate Bush a chance and the album was an EPIC FAIL for me. haven't fuq'd with Tori Amos because of it. wink Relevant or not? I'm just saying

How To Disappear is such a beautiful song. You should give it a listen.
