Reviews about Beth Orton songs

Luv You Beth | Reviewer: joeo
    ------ About the song Sweetest Decline performed by Beth Orton

Her mum washed her hair when she was a child and would sing to her. Father left her mum when she ws 11 died shortly after. Her mum died when´╗┐ she ws 18. She travelled to Thailand lived with Buhddists Nuns. Life can change & be fleetingly gone like a snow flake on your tounge. Often refrences sun in her songs. Longs for her Mum & Dad & their love & nurturance. Sun equals great love. She learned some of life secrets while living with Buhddists Nuns.Butterflies repesent lives small blessings change & spirit. Love and lonliness with Zen like understanding spirit in her songs.

    ------ About the song Bobby Gentry performed by Beth Orton

Worms | Reviewer: Mabel
    ------ About the song Worms performed by Beth Orton

I adore this song, it really is beautiful, most of the time I find Beth Orton rather boring, but this is one of those rare gems.
