Silly songs and one small gem.

"The first single from her 1996 "Boys for Pele," "Caught A Lite Sneeze" was released before the album and gave fans a taste of what was to come. The b-sides on this single are called "Silly Songs" on the back cover, and for the most part, that they are. "This Old Man," you guessed it, is her take on the traditional children's song, "That's What I like Mick (The Sandwich Song)" is a cover of the song by the British duo Chas & Dave, and "Toodles Mr. Jim" brings us thoughts of Amos's childhood. The stand-out track on this single, believe it or not, is "Graveyard," which clocks in at less than a minute. It is a largely beautiful composition in a very small amount of time."
Oddities but no Treasures

"This single contains a suite of aptly titled "Silly Songs." If you always wondered what a Tori Amos nursery rhyme sounded like, because somehow your childhood wasn't random enough, then the planets have perfectly aligned to create this CD for you. However, for those who prefer not to spend hard earned money on curiousities that you'll probably only listen to once before you retire the disc to your CD case, then you will have no difficulty finding other worthy Tori single purchases (The "Spark" imports are not to be missed).The B-sides of this album are short and charming. However, the derivative tracks "This Old Man" and "That's What I Like" are too long, and the original tracks "Graveyard" and "Toodles Mr. Jim" are too short. "Graveyard," in particular, could have been a beautiful album track which makes it all the sadder. The fleeting, undeveloped treasures make the single more painful to listen to than the forgettable flops."
A fun collection of silly songs

""Boys For Pele" has to be Tori's most ambitious album to date. It was also the most difficult album for me to digest. "Boys For Pele" is a far cry from the lush sounds of "Little Earthquakes" and "Under the Pink", nevertheless the album is one of Tori's most compelling albums ever. One of my favorite songs on the album is "Caught a Lite Sneeze". I loved listening to the melodies of Tori's piano playing crash against the rhythms of the drums. The harpsichord added another dimension to the song as well as Tori's music in general. And like a lot of her singles, Tori added on a bunch of songs that wasn't on her album. This time the listener gets to hear Tori sing a bunch of silly songs like "This Old man" and "Toodles Mr. Jim". I thought it was a nice contrast from her previous b-sides. They were mt certainly different from what I was used to hearing. Even Tori has a goofy side. I think it is refreshing to see Tori indulge her silly side with these songs. I enjoyed the bonus songs on the single. It adds another personality to Tori. I wish people would just see that."
