Life has been hectic lately so I’ve been listening to a lot of women musicians.I feel like there is something very calming about female voices – maybe there is a sisterhood about it? common angst? hormones?
Found myself waking up early this morning and reading/answering work emails(don’t ask! O_O) at the crack of dawn and while doing so, I decided to make a playlist. I haven’t made one for quite some time and I never made one that was composed of songs from purely women musicians(or female-led bands, at least) , noh?. I christen thee – the “Lilith” Playlist:
As you can see, it’s a wide variety of artists from different genres and even eras! I love Natalie Merchant and although this is a Patti Smith original(come to think of it, should’ve added a song from Horses here), I think the 10,000 maniacs unplugged cover of “Because The Night” is a rousing rendition. I feel energetic whenever I listen to it. I’ve been on a Sarah Mclachlan trip lately so there you go. LOL. Well, come on, who doesn’t like a depressive Tori Amos? And did I tell you I LOVE FLEETWOOD MAC, major dream to see them live one day so I am supremely jealous that Vinny saw their concert in London! ! I think 32 flavors is such a 90s chick song, just needed to add that. Feist is love, nuff said. I had to add All Saints’ Pure Shores because I love this song! Fiona Apple’s angst is PMS personified. While St. Vincent is a great female voice of recent years although not as iconic as THE Annie Lenox. Mazzy Star’s Fade into You was obviously a last-minute addition, I get kilig when I hear it. HAHA.
P.S. I know you’re asking me why I didn’t add any Joni Mitchell. I just realized it when i started uploading. I know, big mistake. Maybe Lilith pt 2?
