--> ''And the hard part, the bad part, the Jerry Springer show part is that you never stop loving someone. There’s always a piece of them in your heart.''
--> ''Now that she is dead, she tries to remember only the love. She imagines every blow a kiss, the make-up that inexpertly covers the bruises, the cigarette burn on her thigh — all these things, she decides, were gestures of love.''

* Tori's cover of "Happiness is a Warm Gun" from ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum'', with the real-life newsreel audio of Music/JohnLennon's shooting, is ''heartbreaking''.

* Another HarsherInHindsight moment: Tori wrote "The Beekeeper" while her mother was sick in the hospital. The song is about Tori offering herself to TheGrimReaper so he could let her mom live. She got better, but the song got a dark vibe when her ''brother'' turned out to be the family member that died. Tori wrote a song dedicated to him, which is called...
** "Toast". To quote a last.fm user, "The intimacy of this recording, from the chuckle to the partial sob is just startling."

* Her cover of Music/TomWaits' "Time" from ''Music/RainDogs'' is heartbreaking in the best way possible. The verse starting with "Well, they all pretend they're orphans/and their memory's like a train" can especially strike a chord with some.

* Tori's cover version of Music/{{Nirvana}}'s "Smells Like Teen Spirit" from ''Music/{{Nevermind}}'' (on the EP release to "Crucify"). Played solo on the piano like a dirge. The version became HarsherInHindsight after Kurt Cobain's death.

* Tori's cover of Music/{{REM}}'s "Losing My Religion" from ''Music/AutomaticForThePeople'' is absolutely beautiful and completely different from the original, taking it from a reasonably upbeat song to a slower and much sadder one. You can hear pain and loneliness in her voice as she sings.

* Many Music/ToriAmos songs become tearjerkers only after repeated listenings, which are required to decipher cryptic lyrics. But there is nothing ambiguous about "[[RapeAsDrama Me and a Gun.]]" from ''Music/LittleEarthquakes''. It is stark, straightforward, and gut-wrenching. The fact that it's entirely a capella and sounds like she's either completely exhausted or on the verge of tears is what can really do it for some. It's like a haunting spiritual sung by someone who has just lost their faith. Not to mention the fact that it's about Tori's own experiences of being raped.
