ModMusic: Tori Amos with Kylie Minogue

Although they look like candy-covered sisters in the photos here, Tori Amos and Kylie Minogue might well be considered opposite sides of the musical spectrum. But womanhood is a strong bond, crossing genre boundaries -- when Kylie was diagnosed with cancer last year, Tori was on tour in Australia. In her appearances, in tribute to our favorite dance diva, Ms. Amos played a haunting, elegiac piano version of Kylie's biggest worldwide hit, "Can't Get You Out Of My Head", in tribute. Rarely has a song been reinterpreted so powerfully.

And because you may want to pay tribute of your own, here's my favorite Kylie track, recorded live on her last tour: "Better The Devil You Know." Sheer bliss.

Download: "Can't Get You Out Of My Head"

P.S. -- If you'd like to hear Tori's live covers of Tears For Fears, Prince, Kate Bush, Elton John, The Cure, Johnny Cash and others, the best site in the universe is Diagnosed Sounds.
