We need your help to narrow down two songs from Under the Pink - Cloud on my Tongue versus Yes, Anastasia.  Reply back to this post with your choice, between these two songs. Remember - this is for the song you want to hear most in a LIVE concert setting.  Please note that the “loser” doesn’t necessarily disappear as a contender for the concert. It just helps us get a feel for what you’re most interested in. Which is your choice?

Many thanks to everyone who has participated in choosing songs for our first ever Tori Amos Dream Concert™ - Amanda & Daniel will be counting your song mentions over the next few days (and double checking each other’s work, because accuracy is important!), and then we’ll ask YOU, the voters, to make some final decisions. We anticipate the Dream Concert™ being available on our youtube channel between the 21st and the 25th. We’ll have some stuff to keep you occupied between now & then, though. Tune back tomorrow!

Crap! Today was supposed to be the “last call” for our TOURI SONGS dream concert, but we totally spaced over the weekend and didn’t give anyone in tumblr land fair notice. We’re jerks and we apologize. 
If you can’t go back and comment/reply to posts, please leave your song choices here - we’re looking for three songs from each album {with YKTR & MWG at two} six b-sides, six covers, plus improvs/intros {three if you’ve got them!} and ONE veto choice … plus you get an opportunity to give one song an extra bump here!
Or simply make your own post and tag it with “touri songs” so we can find it. Y’all have until 11:59pm PST Tuesday April 8th to get your votes in. 
Did you have anything to add?

TOURI SONGSVeto Power - the Anti-RequestThis is your one chance to specifically say what you don’t want to hear - are you sick of Big Wheel? Have you heard Leather so many times that you just want to run over that angel yourself?

TOURI SONGSImprovs, Intros, Special Bridges & Tori StoriesSadly, in this fantasy concert project, we can’t MAKE Tori say or do anything she hasn’t said already (unless we get really good at splicing!) - but do you have a favourite something that you’d love to hear again? Maybe a specific song intro or bridge, like Hurt leading into Caught a Lite Sneeze. Please give us three suggestions, and if you have a youtube example (or can even provide concert date/locations) we’d be super appreciative!
So, what do you have for us?

"I was looking at these paintings, and showed up at the Irish house, and lo and behold there was a print on the wall of Geraldine … and she looked repentant … so I was looking for the story.”

"I’m finding my own way for myself, & that’s really what part of the record’s about."

toriamosvevo asked, "Can I still vote for songs for TVAB and earlier albums? I noticed that I can't leave an answer. I guess I forgot to answer back when the posts were made. :("

that is so strange - apparently replies turn themselves off at some point (did not know that could happen) and sadly, i went back to update each post to make answers enabled, and it didn’t take! 

you can make a post & tag it with “touri songs” and we’ll count them that way, too. sorry about that!
