Led by a blinding, jazz/rock/fusion rhythm, "Fast As You Can" is appropriately titled, and it sweeps by the listener in a musical blur. A quick series of jazzy chordings somehow keep the song together, despite the blinding tempo. Broken up by a brilliant and well-executed bridge in a slow, almost blues-pop motif, the song acts as a near mini-suite before returning to the fusion fury of the verses. Admonishing the subject in the song to break free of the relationship with her, this surely autobiographical song has a great sense of recrimination, with Apple's usual strong feeling of defiance and individuality.

every part in all these Fiona songs is fun to play. Drums were surprisingly difficult but that's always a plus in my eyes
