What Tori song sounds right at home next to something from another artist? Post one, or several!!

Lust + Hidden Place (Björk) - Lust is very Björk-like IMO, and has that soft electronic sound that helps it blend in with other stuff from the late '90s/early '00s. Anything from Vespertine works - Pagan Poetry, Aurora, etc.

Professional Widow + Legs (PJ Harvey) - I've always thought Widow was kind of a nod to PJ, especially Rid of Me & 4 Track Demos era. The demo version of Legs is even better.

Beauty of Speed + Moving (Kate Bush) - Hear me out. I think American Doll Posse went for an organic '70s kind of sound, and failed miserably. But when the songs are as good as Beauty of Speed, I tend not to notice. I can distinctly hear the whalesong at the end of Moving effortlessly fading into the opening piano parts of Beauty of Speed (works better with a solo version IMO)

I'll start with these "safe" suggestions but I'll be back with more.

Juarez + The Hard Way (Paula Cole) - they both share the same bit of piano line that is eerie and haunting.

a sorta fairytale + Tonight and the Rest of My Life (Nina Gordon) - After hearing ASF for the first time I automatically thought it was reminiscent of Nina's song.

Glory of the 80s + Front Row (Alanis Morissette) - They both use a very similar synth line.

Do It Again cover + Dirt (Depeche Mode cover) - I used to place these next to one another on mix cd compilations because of the similar vibe.

Digital Ghost + Deeper Understanding (Kate Bush) - Thematically these work together.

Hey Jupiter + Purple Rain (Prince) - The ooooo's are so very similar.

Fat Slut + something from (Marilyn Manson) - not sure what, but really could sit on any of his albums.

My posse can do + Don't be stupid (Shania Twain) - Not sure why, but those two really work together.
