1. Me and A Gun | Tori Amos

    (TW: rape)

    "Tori Amos sings an extraordinary, haunting song called "Me and A Gun" about her rape experience. It describes the time when she was nineteen years old and took a ride with a couple of guys who had been at her concert. They pulled over to the side of the road and raped her at gunpoint. In the song, which she sings acapella, she talks about how the thought that she had never been to Barbados kept playing in her mind while she was being raped. Barbados became a metaphor for living through the ordeal." - Dr. Patti Feuereisen & Caroline Pincus. Invisible Girls: The Truth About Sexual Abuse – A Book For Teen Girls, Young Women, and Everyone Who Cares About Them. Avalon Publishing Group, Inc. 2005. (pg. 152)
