Ani DiFranco- Worthy






This song makes the perfect opening to the Not A Pretty Girl album and exemplifies both Ani DiFranco's exquisite and uniquely expressive guitar style and the brilliance of the album's musical arrangement- while Ani plays all of the guitars on the entire album it's hard not to imagine a full, tight and well-weathered band performing this track. Ani has been compared to the likes of Bob Dylan in her approach to the poetry of lyric-writing and it is easy to see the slam poet in Ani breaking though in the song's climactic ending. But it is Ani's identifiably emotion guitar playing that continues to amaze. The audio engineering on this song is also inscrutable making it not only an epitome of lyrical poeticism but a mastery of production as well.

OOOOO my fave from that CD is hour follows hour
mine too.
It was really hard to decide what song to post, I'd been listening to the whole album on repeat all day, which is usually how I listen to the album.

Which song of hers do you think is the most distinctive 'Ani' song as far as her style of guitar playing on NAPG?
distinctive of that album, or of her career?
I was thinking of that album, but I'm interested in what you think as far as her career as well. :)
this is a hard question. she's got a few distinctive styles that she's used a lot over different parts of her career.

i'm going to say that i think Not A Pretty Girl as an album is one where one style does not dominate. and that's why i like this album. and why i don't like her more recent albums.

but I think Not A Pretty Girl, the song, is one that has a style that is distinctive of her career. She uses a chord progression that she uses very often, and a strumming pattern that she's used on more than one occasion. Sometimes blatantly, other times hidden in the chorus or bridge of other songs.

you have great taste. ani is definetly wonderful. do you have the dilate album? if you don't, i strongly recommend this one. it goes to the heart like snake venom.
OOh snake venom is my favourite japanese dipping sauce! :)

Yes, and I love that album as well... in fact, I think I'm going to listen to it now!

I'm really psyched about seeing Ani in concert!!!
For the second time!!

WOOHOO!! :)
damn, i've only seen her once. she's fabulous, though. *dreaming*
Oh, when/where did you see her?

You should come to the show in Boston on the 5th! Everyone's gonna be there! :P
June 25, 2001. Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Sekou Sundiata opened for her.

don't i wish i could see her again. *starts singing radiohead's "nice dream"*
Radiohead!! I think my cyclic music listening patterns are leading me back in that direction pretty soon. I've come to be able to predict them to some extent.

*thinks*

And in April I'll be back in full force Ani mode!
*laugh* wonderful.
am i starting to get annoying?
Uhm... no. Am I?
heavens no. you're quite charming, actually.
:P

Oh quit it, yer makin' me blush!
good, then we're even. you ruined the morbid dead girl look that i was trying to achieve by making me grin. lol
Good! I knew there was a smile under there somewhere. :)
