LOS ANGELES—Her mood dangerously optimistic at the end of the school year, teenager Christine Lowell was reminded of the need to assume a sullen, self-pitying manner Monday by the Fiona Apple song "Sleep To Dream." "God, I don't see why I should have to continue facing these phonies every day of my miserable life," Lowell said after the song came into rotation on her MP3 player. "I can't be, you know, stifled by your insignificant ways, all right?" At last report, Lowell's mother, the only witness to Christine's sudden and deliberate mood change, had resumed driving to the supermarket without comment.
This little blurb from The Onion is funny and all. I can see some of how they get this stereotyped angsty-girl idea, but it doesn't really reflect what I hear on Miss Fiona's records. "Depression" is just not a word that generally comes to mind when I hear her sing and play. What I hear generally would be more like she's ready to get up from that piano and knock some deserving fool upside the head- or put her fist through a "Window" to avoid it. I just don't hear moping.
