THE FACTS: "God" is the second track on Amos' 1994 album Under the Pink. The song reached number forty-four on the UK singles chart as well as #1 on the US Modern Rock Chart which is to date her only number one song on that chart. The song was Amos' response to patriarchy and the repression of women through religion. Lyrically it was heavily confrontational of male-deity headed religions. American radio was very hesitant to play the song because of its heavy use of guitars, so a promotional CD was released in the USA with two commercially unavailable mixes of the song: the "No Guitar" mix and the "Some Guitar" mix. The b-sides to the American release included Amos' reworking of the traditional song "Home on the Range", with new lyrics reflecting her Cherokee heritage, as well as a two-song instrumental piano suite. The music video for God features Amos in a variety of religiously themed situations, notably showing mundane situations in day to day life and making visual correlations with religious rituals. This includes visually comparing a Tefilin used by a Rabbi with a basketball player using a belt on his arm while injecting drugs. The video is often remembered for scenes of Amos dancing with a plethora of brown rats; this was commented on in an episode of the television show Beavis and Butthead.
YOU are one of Tori’s most talked about songs, simply because it’s so left-of-the-middle. Challenging issues of divinity, religion, gender and everything else across the board, chances are, you’re pretty much of a challenge yourself. The song is clearly a jab at patriarchy, who has been subjugating and, at the same time, excluding women for much too long. Whether or not you actually are a feminist, however, is a different matter altogether. Perhaps not. But what’s safe to say is that you are quite unconventional. And not passively so, either. Yours is a snarky, witty, biting kind of eccentricity, one which leaves no norm challenged and abides by no principles simply because ‘it’s the thing you do’. You are passionate about your causes, and may even have a militant bone in your body. Or several, for that matter. Some of which may have been broken during various protests. When attacked, your best defense is your spear-headed tongue. Snap, snap, snap. And with that kind of coping mechanism, it’s probably safe to say you’ve seen your share of strife. The lesson you took away from those experiences was to not blame ‘authority’ or some sort of ‘higher order’ for your woes. Throughout your experiences, you’ve really grown into the belief that people are entirely responsible for what they make of their lives and their potential. Your worldview is wholly anti-deterministic, you have faith in humankind (in spite of your apparent cynicism) and you believe that we all have the potential to fulfill our potential – if only we’d stop being so goddamn sheepish.
