BACKTRACK: Fiona Apple – Sleep to Dream

This backtrack is a classic from 1997 and the first song written by American alternative artist Fiona Apple when she was 14.

Summed up by the line ‘I have never been so insulted in all my life’, Sleep to Dream has a wonderfully angry, moody and menacing tone typical of an artist who is rarely easy to listen to, but all the more valuable for it.

It was the second single taken from Apple’s superb debut album Tidal, and it’s a masterpiece that never achieved the chart success its quality deserved.
