Enjoying Fiona Apple's new cd

I remember my dad buying me, Fiona Apple's first cd, Tidal, when it came out in 1996 and I was in middle school.

I loved Extraordinary Machine in 2005 and used to listen to it almost every day to work for months. 

Earlier this week, I excitedly downloaded Fiona Apple's new cd "The Idler Wheel Is ­Wiser / Than the Driver of the Screw / And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More / Than Ropes Will Ever Do". I read that it's her fourth album in 16 years. I have a few favorite songs so far, particularly Left Alone and Hot Knife.

Left Alone is apparently Fiona Apple's favorite song according to the Dan Lee review. I like the upbeat tempo and the vocal rounds in Hot Knife a lot. Have you heard it? (Mom, you will probably appreciate the piano, but not necessarily all of her lyrics.)

If I'm butter - if I'm butter- 
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife, 
He makes my heart a cinemascope, 
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise. 

If I'm butter - if I'm butter- 
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife, 
He makes my heart a cinemascope, 
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise. 

He excites me 
Must be like a genesis of rhythm 
I get feisty 
Whenever I'm with him 

If I'm butter - if I'm butter- 
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife, 
He makes my heart a cinemascope, 
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise 

I'm a hot knife- if I'm a hot knife- 
I'm a hot knife if he's a pad of butter. 
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that 
He's never gonna need- never need another. 
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/f/fiona+apple/hot+knife_21013394.html ] 
I'm a hot knife- if I'm a hot knife- 
I'm a hot knife if he's a pad of butter 
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that 
He's never gonna need- never need another. 

(And you can, and you can, and you can wild up around me) 

(If I'm butter - if I'm butter- 
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife, 
He makes my heart a cinemascope, 
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise) 

(And you can, and you can, and you can wild up around me) 

I'm a hot knife- if I'm a hot knife- 
I'm a hot knife if he's a pad of butter 
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that 
He's never gonna need- never need another. 

(And you can, and you can, and you can wild up around me) 

He excites me 
Must be like a genesis of rhythm 
I get feisty 
Whenever I'm with him...
