Best New Videos: Fiona Apple "Hot Knife"

7/27/13

When it comes to Fiona Apple videos, nothing will ever come close to topping "Not About Love," and that's never changing. That's not to take away away from today's top music video "Hot Knife," which got the official release treatment this week.

We first brought "Hot Knife" to your attention last June, about the time everyone but us was falling all over themselves to praise Apple's The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do. And yes, that is the actual title of the album.

Paul Thomas Anderson (your favorite!) was behind the camera for this throwback video.

Check out the official video for Fiona Apple "Hot Knife" below: 

As we mentioned last June, we're still dying for a diva like Beyoncé to cover this song. Not to take anything away from Ms. Apple (except for that pedantically-titled record she put out last year. Fuck that shit), but this song just feels like it's screaming out for someone with Mama Carter's range and Stank to come in and own it. That'll probably never happen though, seeing as how the risks far outweigh the potential reward, but we can still dream.

Fiona Apple's The Idler Wheel… is out now, not that we recommend you purchase, or even bother to illegally download it. "Hot Knife" and "Every Single Night" are the only tracks worse a damn.

Thanks for stopping by Bitcandy, where we're still searching for someone who'll make our heart a cinemascope screen showing the dancing bird of paradise.
