Outside the domain of your affective powers
I had a little plastic life
It was a souvenir from a place I'd never been
On a trip I'd never taken
I kept it to remind me
I detected fire in myself before the flame

That burned it all to the ground
Burned it all to the ground
Burned it all

We met and reproduced fire in the sex electric
I lost my power of explanation
Perfect was a nice disguise, it never fit
But I still have my little plastic life to remind me
I detected fire in myself before the flame

That burned it all to the ground
Burned it all to the ground
Burned it all to the ground

Burned it all to the ground
Burned it all to the ground
Burned it all to the ground

i think this song is terrible

I simply can NOT hear her w/o instantly thinking of Gilmore Girls

Sam is awesome and her producer ex-husband is fantastic!  T-Bone yep...
She's getting better all the ti-i-ime...
I always enjoy hearing Sam Phillips.
"The World Cafe" story alone gives her a +1 add on to all her songs... {#Clap}

Guitar lick: One is the loneliest number... that you'll ever know....

eh, not so much.{#Confused}
I normally like Sam Phillips, but she needs her husband back bad on this one.
Although that cover is very cool, literally.

meh. don't dig her.
Quirky and very fine!

I'd bet she would be thrilled to hear that.

By the way, the concert I referenced below was great.

Likable....Something about her sound..even when she has tried different "styles" I have enjoyed it. Objectively ( with my surplus of musical training) I could find fault..but it is music and when she sings it is like a conversation with her talking to me. The communication comes through, no great voice or " musicianship" but a connection about the song. She's OK. This song is easy to listen to and easy to forget but it works.........
Seeing her live at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago this Sunday.  Should be a great time.

This one gets a 7 for now, will probably levitate higher later.
I like this so much better than the other cut Bill's been playing from this release! A 6 to start....
interesting...
wow, for the comment below ALONE she sounds great... I wasnt that into this song when it first came on, although I was interested to know if this title is a play off Ani DiFranco's "Little Plastic Castles"... and Id be interested to see if this will grow on me! ;o)
Caught her on "The World Cafe" radio show last night, where she was doing an interview and playing a few songs live. I had never heard her stuff before and was impressed by what I heard. Also, funny story...during the interview, she talked about the fact that she was signed to a Christian label very early in her career, and wanted out of the contract. They wouldn't let her out, so she told them that she had had premarital sex and was going to tell everyone about it in her songs, at which time the record label promptly released her.
