I have always been someone that appreciates music and film that tends to go a little deeper ( and darker sometimes). At a time when pop culture was very superficial with the likes of Boy George and Wham, she was this amazing feminist eccentric enigma who dared to write about things like rape, miscarriage and relationships that were more complicated than just boy meets girl. Her songs were like a cryptic emotional rollercoaster that you could get totally lost in. Despite not having any musical talent whatsoever, as a teen I always imagined myself perched next to her in front her Bösendorfer, singing along with her ethereal classically trained voice. I am still a huge fan, at least up to the late 90's where she began to join the ranks of overly produced commercial artists that I just 'don't get'.
I will leave with you a song from my favourite album. Not everyones cup of tea I know but I just love her xox
