Passages: Paper Bag - Fiona Apple: 1:15
Russell Degnan

On music; greatness is short

Paper Bag, the best song on Fiona Apple's ridiculously titled When the Pawn..., has a triptych structure. 75 seconds of syncopated jazz, concluding with the chorus. If that was the song, it would a be good song, about a paper bag.

Then it kicks off.


I went crazy again today
Looking for a strand to climb
Looking for
A little hope.

Unrequited love. Feel the deep sigh at 1:55...

Hunger hurts
But starving works.
