Listening Station: Milking “Cornflake Girl” For All Its Worth

Jun 12th, 2007 // 6 Comments

, here’s another cover version of Tori Amos’ “Cornflake Girl,” this time performed by the D.C. powerhouse known as Jawbox. Weirdly, according to Wiki, Amos’ original version hit No. 4 in the U.K., surely making it the second-most popular raisin-related song of all time.

    Hell yes. A version where you don’t have to fast-forward through “Absenter”!

  4. Ned Raggett

    Haha, too true. (But didn’t it turn up on the rarities comp? My mind may be foggy on the point.)

    @Jerkwheat: Agreed!

    @Ned Raggett:

    Nope. It wasn’t on My Scrapbook of Fatal Accidents. Nor was their version of the Avengers’ “Thin White Line” or the studio version of “68.”
