Cat Power, "Ice Water", off of the raw, sad, angry, and enigmatic album Myra Lee.
Chan did try to drink herself to death... and came out on the other side having pushed her demons deeper enough to make her music all schmoozy and samey, vs. the rawness of her early stuff. Why is it that some artists cannot create unless they are utterly miserable? I don't know... I guess there's just a sadness to this world, that's all, that can overwhelm some people to the point they have to write or sing about it, and once they find their way out of it they have no more reason to write or sing.
