Favorite Songs of the 2010s # 63 “Regret” by Fiona Apple

Fiona Apple



From album The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do.


I’ve spent many years listening to hardcore and metal. I’ve seen lots of angry bands, I’ve been in an angry band and this piano song by Fiona Apple is still one of the most pissed things I’ve ever heard. It’s the kind of song that makes you say “Fuuucccckkkk” out loud when you first hear it. I’m not sure anyone has ever eviscerated their ex like this. The whole album is about her relationship with  writer Jonathan Ames. I don’t care if that guy writes the next War and Peace, he’s always going to be the guy who was a dick to Fiona Apple.

Hell hath no fury indeed.
