Eric Rosse and Tori Amos

"Honey" is a B-side from Tori Amos's 1994 album Under the Pink.

Background Edit

"Honey" was meant to be included on Under the Pink but a comment from "a girl in the studio" convinced Tori to take it off the album in favour of "The Wrong Band". Tori noted in 1994 that "Under the Pink wept..."

The song was released as a B-side to "Pretty Good Year" in the UK and Australia and to "Cornflake Girl" in the US.

Reception Edit

"Honey" has received a cult following based on its last-minute removal from Under the Pink's track listing.

X of PopMatters described "Honey" as "the quintessential b-side: just a touch too different in scope and sound to fit on its intended album ... and just a touch too good to be cluttered among and in competition with other songs."
