* "Me and a Gun" from ''Music/LittleEarthquakes'', a song infamous for its stark lyrics about Tori's rape. The fact that it's a cappella doesn't help, because it forces the listener to focus on the lyrics without any instrumentation to be distracted by.

* Her insanely creepy version of "Raining Blood" that even managed to creep out Music/{{Slayer}}. It consists of a ''very'' off-putting bass synthesizer, piano from a demonic lullaby, and Tori's haunting, disconnected vocals.

* Me and a Gun. Also her song "Juarez" is already eerie, but it becomes this when you find out it's based on [[spoiler:the violent homicides of hundreds of women in Cuidad Juarez, Mexico.]] It's kinda difficult to listen to it now. ** The dreadful implications of one simple line from Juarez:

* Let's not forget her insanely creepy version of "Raining Blood". ** Even Music/{{Slayer}} was creeped out by it. * Amos' '97 Bonnie and Clyde needs its own entry. It's bad enough when Music/{{Eminem}} does it, but Tori actually puts it to what sounds like a horror film theme. Then consider the lyrics in general: "Where's Mama? She's takin' a little nap in the trunk. Oh, that smell? Da-da musta runned over a skunk." ** Tori sounds like a psychopath. Rumor has it that Tori takes the perspective of the ''dead wife''.

Your choice. One of these tales is true. --> She lived through the war. In 1959 she came to America. She now lives in a condo in Miami, a tiny French woman with white hair, with a daughter and a grand-daughter. She keeps herself to herself and smiles rarely, as if the weight of memory keeps her from finding joy. --> Or that’s a lie. Actually the Gestapo picked her up during a border crossing in 1943, and they left her in a meadow. First she dug her own grave, then a single bullet to the back of the skull. --> Her last thought, before that bullet, was creeped out by it. that she was four months’ pregnant, and that if we do not fight to create a future there will be no future for any of us. --> There is an old woman in Miami who wakes, confused, from a dream of the wind blowing the wildflowers in a meadow. --> There are bones untouched beneath the warm French earth which dream of a daughter’s wedding. Good wine is drunk. The only tears shed are happy ones. * Amos' '97 "'97 Bonnie and Clyde Clyde" needs its own entry.
