Tori Amos quotes...

You recorded a duet with Michael Stipe, It Might Hurt A Bit? for the Don Juan de Marco soundtrack - it s never seen the light of day, so do you have any plans to release it?

It s in the vaults. I don t know. I mean, I have to find out where the masters are to be honest. It got real sticky at that time. I know you re looking at me going, "you don t know where the master is?" but off the top of my head, I don t. Because we were doing it for a film it got out of control. I haven t talked to Michael about it in a while. It s funny, the last time I saw him, we didn t talk about it, it s not something we bring up." [Record Collector - November 1999]

What's your relationship with Michael Stipe?

We wrote a song together called "It Might Hurt" but it kind of took a vacation. Maybe I'll resurrect it sometime, I don't know. We were put together by one of the film guys at Atlantic Records, and we got along like a house afire. He's very special." [iGuide - January 1996]
