12 Every Single Night

Fiona Apple brought her songwriting skills to an even higher level with her fourth release. In addition, her vocal performances are more expressive than ever, capable to exactly deliver every single emotion and word, and the brilliant minimalistic production is better than her past baroque efforts (there are some good reminiscences of her great sophomore effort, though).
This song with its simple music production and its very evocative lyrics is a masterpiece of lyricism. It's Fiona at her most virtuous without being virtuoso.
"Werewolf", the second video-less single from the album, is another masterpiece and even better that this one. Unfortunately it's not on the list. Werewolf lyrics and paranoid piano arrangement put Fiona in the club of the best songwriters and musicians in the world. Forget "Criminal" please, that was just mild stuff compared to this.

OK, seriously this song is so damn awesome, and way under rated. I get it's not her best song commercially, but really? 12th Place?! Come on now, this song is brilliant beyond its years! Nobody, and I mean NOBODY but Fiona Apple, could deliver such an astonishing vocal with that minimalist music! No one but Fiona Apple could ever dream of writing lyrics as creative and expressive as these. Let's get some common sense and vote this song up higher! Fiona Apple has got to be the most talented lyricist in modern music! This song embodies her defiance of being classified as any known genre to exist! Very disappointed in this song's placement, next time I see this list this song had better be higher up!

I agree with the comment below!

Her best song: great ironic but still deep and tongue-in-cheek lyrics, amazing delivering vocal performance and superlative minimalistic piano production.
The kids screaming at the end are just irresistible and so perfect.
