Damn, I wish I was a butterfly. Butterflies get so close to apple tree flowers, they make me jealous. Anyway, we’re not going to talk about apple fruits today, since I intentionally pushed aside Fiona Apple’s singles out of the article regarding her discography, and now the time has come to fill in another part. That’s because to some people looking to find that Fiona Apple discography, singles are also important, maybe to have a better picture of her as an artist, maybe simply to have all data nicely gathered.
Speaking for myself, well… I think most singles are released by artists who simply have 2-3 good tracks on an album, and a few fillers too many. I guess that’s why Fiona Apple hasn’t released a single for almost a decade now. Singles could be good to make you popular easier in the beginning, but not once you get serious -and she is, my friends, she really is serious!
Fiona Apple, Single(s)
OK, enough talk – let’s get to the point now – you’re looking for the Fiona Apple singles collection here, right? Unfortunately, I can’t sell any of them to you just yet, but let’s leave that aside for now. If you need my help, just ask it, and you’ll get it; these being said, here’s the collection of Fiona Apple singles:
1997 “Sleep to Dream”
1998 “Never is a Promise”
1999 “Fast As You Can”
Out of that list, the first four are coming from her “Tidal” album, while the last one comes from “When The Pawn.” None of them was really a smashing hit, since the most notorious one – “Criminal” – only made it to the 4th position in the U.S. Modern Rock Tracks chart, and 10th in the U.S. ARC Weekly Top 40. Of course that this doesn’t mean anything. After all, there may be more people eating hamburgers than apples, but that doesn’t mean hamburgers are better…
