Very happy and joyful song for today, brought to us by Tori Amos.
She is an American singer and songwriter, also a pianist.
She is recognized by her mezzo-soprano vocal range.
The artist was the youngest person ever to have been admitted, at the age of five, at the Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University.
She sings mostly alternative rock, pop-rock, and chamber pop and she plays the piano, as we already mentioned.
This full-of-energy song the we chose for today’s article - Cornflake Girl, was released by Amos as the first single from her second studio album named Under the Pink, in January 1994.
The free Cornflake Girl piano sheet music was recorded and released by the Atlantic and EastWest Records labels.
The song has a length of 5:06 minutes in the album version and was shortened to 3:54 minutes for the single version.
Cornflake Girl was written by Tori Amos and co-produced by her together with Eric Rosse.
It is considered part of the alternative rock and baroque pop music genre and had great commercial success when released.
The free Cornflake Girl piano sheets peaked at number 7 on the US Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 and had incredible success all over the world.
The beautiful name of the song came from a conversation between Tori Amos and a friend of hers, about female genital mutilation in Africa.
Tori Amos declared that growing up, the name they gave to girls who would hurt you despite close friendship was cornflake girls.
Even if the title sounds playful, the meaning of the song is serious and a little sad, because of the true story about African women.
The song has two different music videos.
The UK version, directed by Big TV!, and the US video, featuring Tori Amos driving a truck full of women around an American desert.
The UK version of the video represents the story of The Wizard of Oz, but with the difference that Dorothy goes to Hell instead of the original version of the story.
Cornflake Girl is now available on our website and you can easily access all the information about it, so you can play it on your piano at home.
