Sat at work feeling a bit blue and thinking about how my musical taste is pretty dominated by female singers. I'm usually thinking that I should try and listen to more male vocalists (I've been doing quite well this year - Elliott Smith
, Ray LaMontagne
, Arctic Monkeys
, Andrew Bird
etc.) So I thought instead of thinking like this, today I will embrace my love of female singers and make a compilation for my iTunes.
There were 3 songs that didn't make it (I like my compilations to have 20 songs because then they can usually fit on a CD!)Death Of Samantha
- Yoko OnoBulimic Beats
- Sheryl Crow
The playlist is quite depressing really, but it picks up towards the end - "Wise Up" is recognising there's a problem and realising you need to change to sort it,
"Deep Water" is along a similar vein 'we must demand more not from each other, but more from ourselves' and then Good To Yourself is one of my favourite feel good songs.
