Happy Birthday 90's ICON Fiona Apple!

Today, September 13th, is the birthday of the ridiculously talented & amazing FIONA APPLE!
Few artists have been able to capture my heart like this woman! In today's world, very few artists actually write/produce & perform their own music. Songs are passed around like hot cakes, meaning producers/artists don't really pride in their music if they pass them around so easily/frequently. That's why, WE NEED ARTISTS LIKE FIONA APPLE IN TODAY'S WORLD! 

With eyes that could pierce through your soul, this woman dives in your mind and swims through the depths of your mind with her lyrics & haunting piano melodies. She's 100% authentic, something that's lacking in today's music. 

Apple has NEVER been afraid to say what's on her mind, which is one of the reasons I adore her! After she broke onto the scene with her CLASSIC 90's album, Tidal, she got quite the reputation after her infamous 1998 Grammy acceptance speech bellow:
For awhile she held the record of longest album title ever with her sophomore album, 
When the pawn hits the conflicts he thinks like a king
What he knows throws the blows when he goes to the fight
And he'll win the whole thing 'fore he enters the ring
There's no body to batter when your mind is your might
So when you go solo, you hold your own hand
And remember that depth is the greatest of heights
And if you know where you stand, then you know where to land
And if you fall it won't matter, cause you'll know that you're right
Or simply abbreviated to, When the Pawn..
All 3 of her albums have been critically acclaimed, and it's rumored she'll be releasing NEW MATERIAL soon! (A boy can dream.)
She claims she doesn't go to the piano & write music when she's happy, so I take it she's been having a good time since her 2005 album, Extraordinary Machine. 
Hopefully she gets her heart broken soon because her fans are DYING for new music! ahaha :)
Here is her 1996 hit, Sleep to Dream. ENJOY. 90'S. KIDS.
