4.0 out of 5 stars A fun collection of silly songs April 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Boys For Pele" has to be Tori's most ambitious album to date. It was also the most difficult album for me to digest. "Boys For Pele" is a far cry from the lush sounds of "Little Earthquakes" and "Under the Pink", nevertheless the album is one of Tori's most compelling albums ever. One of my favorite songs on the album is "Caught a Lite Sneeze". I loved listening to the melodies of Tori's piano playing crash against the rhythms of the drums. The harpsichord added another dimension to the song as well as Tori's music in general. And like a lot of her singles, Tori added on a bunch of songs that wasn't on her album. This time the listener gets to hear Tori sing a bunch of silly songs like "This Old man" and "Toodles Mr. Jim". I thought it was a nice contrast from her previous b-sides. They were mt certainly different from what I was used to hearing. Even Tori has a goofy side. I think it is refreshing to see Tori indulge her silly side with these songs. I enjoyed the bonus songs on the single. It adds another personality to Tori. I wish people would just see that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oddities but no Treasures Nov. 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
This single contains a suite of aptly titled "Silly Songs." If you always wondered what a Tori Amos nursery rhyme sounded like, because somehow your childhood wasn't random enough, then the planets have perfectly aligned to create this CD for you. However, for those who prefer not to spend hard earned money on curiousities that you'll probably only listen to once before you retire the disc to your CD case, then you will have no difficulty finding other worthy Tori single purchases (The "Spark" imports are not to be missed).
The B-sides of this album are short and charming. However, the derivative tracks "This Old Man" and "That's What I Like" are too long, and the original tracks "Graveyard" and "Toodles Mr. Jim" are too short. "Graveyard," in particular, could have been a beautiful album track which makes it all the sadder. The fleeting, undeveloped treasures make the single more painful to listen to than the forgettable flops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catch four fun gems along with a lite sneeze July 15 2002
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Every Tori Amos EP or maxi single is worth buying because she always delivers some unpredictable yet wonderful new songs alongside the single release being featured. This particular item is no exception. "Caught a Lite Sneeze," the first single from the Boys For Pele album, is one of the two best songs on that particular album ("Talula" being the other one). In addition to this unedited single, Tori introduces four "silly songs." It really feels as if you are right there with her when she decides to play around a little bit on the piano; there is an improvised, personalized feel to these songs. "This Old Man" is the same song we all learned as children, but Tori somehow manages to make it sound downright sensuous. Next is "That's What I Like Mick (The Sandwich Song)," which is a lyrically dense little jaunt that sounds as if Tori is making up the song as she goes along; it is the real gem among these four previously unreleased songs. "Graveyard" is a very short, strange little tune sung at the grave of a recently deceased friend. "Toodles Mr Jim" rounds out the set. Tori plays the part of a small girl singing about a recently deceased neighbor, ending the song with a few words spoken in an immature sing-song voice. While silly is a relative term when you are talking about Tori Amos, it does describe these four songs fairly well--Tori is amusing herself by playing around with some nice, unusual songs that would never find their way on a conventional album. I would certainly consider this a must-have item for Tori's legion of fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute and Interesting Dec 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
While far from being the best Pele single- that honor goes to the "Hey Jupiter" EP- this is a cute and interesting CD.
CAUGHT A LITE SNEEZE: A great song, worth buying the CD for. good song to own.
THIS OLD MAN: A haunting rendition of the nursery rhyme. Tori's voice glides beautifully and creepily over the simple lyrics.
THE SANDWICH SONG: One of those songs you really have to be in the mood for- it's.... shall we say... odd. A cover of a song by the same duo who wrote "London Girls," which Tori covered on the US "Talula" single. Cute in a wierd way.
GRAVEYARD: Beautiful and too short.
TOODLES MR. JIM: A sweet and sad improv in the classic Tori tradition- I love the spoken words added at the end.
All in all.... If you don't know Tori, chances are you won't like this CD. But, it's a good addition to any Tori fan's collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Caught a Nice Laugh Jan. 15 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
'Caught A Lite Sneeze', one of Tori's many singles, is very different from anything else. In addition to the exquisite title track, the single has 4 b-sides listed under the heading 'Silly Songs'. The reason I say it is different is because many of Tori's songs have a serious sound to them. The b-sides, a nice contrast to the title track, are all sing-songy little tunes. How could someone not let out a chuckle at Tori singing "This Old Man"? Tori's cover of "That's What I Like Mick (The Sandwich Song)" is a list of things that she likes, played and sung in a unique jazzy style. The majestically haunting 54 second-long "Graveyard" is exclusive to this CD single (the UK versions do not have it), and "Toodles Mr. Jim", a bouncy funny tribute to a neighbor who passed away, is by far one of her best b-sides. I give this single 5 stars.

Only Tori. Only Tori could sing a children's song without it being childish. It's more... portentous and Lorelei-esque, if you will. Read more
