THE LOST SONGS
The LOST SONGS section lists all of the known songs written and performed by Tori Amos (aka Myra Ellen Amos) but were never published; including date written, copyright date, musician details, and other info, including some lyrics. The listed copywritten songs range from 1978 through 1995. They can be found listed in the Sound ONline Inventory and Catalog (SONIC): a searchable database of the Library of Congress Audio Collection. The catalog represents only a portion of the Library's 78 rpm discs, nearly all the 45 rpm discs, cassettes, and more.

A few of the songs also include links to the lyrics which were retrieved from the Library of Congress by an anonymous informant who was kind enough to give me the exclusive in the early years of this website. The recordings, I'm told, were often poor in quality, so some of the lyrics may be misheard or missing. You can currently download a handful of the songs in mp3 from Tori's Beauty And A Gun website.
