** Tori wanted to cover "Fear of a Black Planet" from ''Music/FearOfABlackPlanet'' by Music/PublicEnemy, "Hoover Factory" by Music/ElvisCostello, "Marlene Dietrich's Favorite Poem" by Music/PeterMurphy, and a harpsichord version of "I'm Sick of You" by Music/IggyPop for ''Strange Little Girls''. She didn't cover "Black Planet" and "Hoover Factory" because she couldn't find a way to remake them in time. Tori didn't cover "Favorite Poem" because she felt that Peter Murphy had already taken the point of view she would've taken. Lastly, she didn't cover "I'm Sick of You" because the harpsichord wasn't ready in time, and she didn't feel like doing it when it was. Whether these would've been more interesting covers than the ones on the album is unknown.

* OneOfUs - She is a huge comic book fan. It's not much of a surprise when you take her relationship with NeilGaiman and ''Comic Book Tattoo'' into account. Her image on TheOtherWiki is taken from an appearence at ComicCon.

* CreatorBreakdown - "Me and a Gun" is about her rape, "Toast" was the result of her brother's death, ''Boys for Pele'' was the result of a bad breakup, and ''from the choirgirl hotel'' was the result of her miscarriage(s).

** When she first submitted ''Little Earthquakes'' to her record company, they didn't like it and made her record more songs. Then they wanted to remove some songs from her soon-to-be debut. This is one of those cases where the executives unknowingly helped, since the second batch of songs Tori recorded were fan-favorites "Tear In Your Hand" and "Precious Things". They also wanted to replace the piano with guitars, since {{Grunge}} was popular at the time. Fortunately, Tori didn't let that happen.

** While many artists' pre-fame work is rereleased to capitalize on their later success, all of Y Kant Tori Read's work has remained out of print since Atlantic deleted it shortly after its release. This is because when Amos reached success with Little Earthquakes, she demanded that no Y Kant Tori Read material be rereleased; Atlantic honors the demand to this day. Despite this, she occasionally plays the Y Kant Tori Read songs "Etienne" and "Cool on Your Island" live, and the album and the music video for "The Big Picture" (Featuring a scantily-clad Amos with [[TheEighties terrible 80s hair]]) have made it onto the internet.

* NoHitWonder - For all of her success, influence and popularity, Amos has never had a Top-40 hit [[GermansLoveDavid Hasselhoff (At least in the United States)]]. Her highest charting single, "Spark", only went to 49 on the Billboard Hot 100.

** Now she stopped wearing wigs, and her real hair is currently orange-red. *** It's still a wig, it's just of a much higher quality.

** The [[StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Mr. Sulu]]/Warp speed" lyric in "In the Springtime of His Voodoo" further qualifies her.

** Actually, Tori seems to have reconciled herself with the album, to the extent that she occasionally plays songs from the album live (particularly "Etienne" and "Cool on Your Island"). This may be an example of an artist reconciling with Old Shame. As for the badness of the album, opinions differ widely; some folks think it's abysmal, while others find it kind of charming in a synth-poppy, "80s hard rock meets Music/KateBush" kind of way. *** Despite this, Amos still holds to her demand that no Y Kant Tori Read material be rereleased, which Atlantic Records continues to honor.
