I thought that I already had a post about this song.
This was the first Fiona Apple song that I got in MP3 format years ago when I was at the birthday party of my former male classmate MT, and it was possibly one of the first MP3s that I got.
MT had a computer & he showed me a program called Napster where you could download music in a digital format called MP3.
This was an amazing discovery at that time, learning about things like Napster & MP3s, and having music in digital form instead of on CDs & cassettes.
This is a great & underappreciated & lesser known song by Fiona Apple, it is a very moody song, poetic in its mood in my opinion, and I especially like the instrumental parts at the end; there is just something special & classic & mood setting & nostalgic about the instrumental ending that brings me back to the past every time.
I wish that more people knew about this song.
This is among my favorite songs by Fiona Apple, and Tidal is my favorite music album by her.
