      Default Women & Music

      To my surprise I couldn't find a thread dedicated to the amazing contribution of women in music. Something which is surely past due. So here it is.
      A place to share, honour, and discuss the influences of women through-out musics history, past and present.

      Women have always brought a strong and wonderfully unique essense to music.
      I'll often grab for the CDs by female artist when feeling creative before male artist. For myself, their influences and contributions have always been remarkable. LOL. Within the past forty-eight hours I've only listened to female artists, as I still am.
      Currently I'm listening to PINK. And probably will through-out the night.
      She is Real. And an contemporary artist with True Extreme Pasion. She has a voice that would truly make Janis Joplin proud and is very moving to listen to.
      She kicks and I love it.

      I have to say I love a diva! I love the women that can belt out a ballad...Celine Dion, Whitney (before the drugs)....I also like the purity of some of the women's voices - one of my favourites is Sinead O'Connor Nothin Compares 2 U

      Listening to the music of Loreena McKennitt is for myself like weaving fine tapestries of the mind and soul. Another very fine artist.

      Bat For Lashes (Natasha Khan) is officially my favourite singer/songwriter following her incredible second album Two Suns. It's alternative but still accessible. She creates extraordinary worlds with her songs and lyrics...a strong element of fantasy in her work. Love this song, but you need to be a little open-minded. I do believe she has set a higher bar for similar artists in the genre.



      [I will rise now
      And go about the city
      In the streets
      Broadways I seek
      Him whom my soul loveth]

      Went over the sea
      What did I find?
      A thousand crystal towers
      A hundred emerald cities
      And the hand of the watchman
      In the night sky
      Points to my beloved
      A knight in crystal armour...

      And I tried to hold him
      I tried for the cream
      I'll make a suit of colours
      To stop the blinding mirrors
      Sew a cape of rainbow
      Stifle up the beam
      With the perfect armour
      With the perfect dream...

      To be made of glass
      When two suns are shining
      The battle becomes blinding
      To be made of glass
      But we're light and light and light
      and light and light!

      And from two suns spinning
      At two different speeds
      Was born a hot white diamond
      Burning through the rainbow
      Flames fell into orbit
      To hold eternally
      Two heavenly spirits
      That just wouldn't seem

      To be made of glass!
      When two suns are shining
      The battle becomes blinding
      To be made of glass
      But we're light and light and light
      and light and light!

      Also been a big fan of Goldfrapp for years, although they are rather more a duo than a solo artist, although Alison Goldfrapp lends her name to the project. This is my favourite song from their new album.

      "And I, and I'm only dreaming..."
