Purple has been lending me music CDs of Tori Amos. I've taken a fancy to her because of a cover of one of her songs by Cabaret Voltaire that I like very much. The song is "caught a light sneeze" from her Boys for Pele album. It has a chorus where she sings, "Boys on the left side, boys on the right side, boys in the middle and you're not here, boys in their dresses and you're not here..." I always think of The Sound of Music "My Favorite Things" with that line about the dresses, which I think was the intention of the lyric. I've also come across an instrumental version that is particularly sweet. Can't think of the string quartet that recorded it, but if I come across it, I'll post that eventually...
