anyway, stream of consciousness... this made me think of ani difranco and I realized I hadn't listened to her in forever! so I put on some playlist that I made ages ago and just soaked up how awesome she is. how could I forget???
madhavi didn't like her at first - but after a few songs in she said she wasn't so bad. and then I was thinking how I should make her a playlist of awesome 90s(ish) girl music...I mean, taylor swift is great and stuff... but she wouldn't be so awesome if it wasn't for the ladies who came before her!
I have to really think about it more, but here are a few of the songs I would put on the playlist:
* tori amos - silent all these years
* alanis morissette - head over feet (but acoustic... because.)
* fiona apple - sleep to dream
* pj harvey - man-size
* ani difranco - both hands
* bjork - like someone in love
* liz phair - extraordinary
* lisa loeb - stay
* natalie merchant - carnival
there are so many more I could add. these were just the first artists/songs that popped into my head. and if I added more recent stuff, this list could go on and on! #90sforlife ha!
|90s girlie music me. taken at the talent show my junior year, when my band, ophelia's soupe, won playing a tori amos song!|
p.s. I've never been to the lilith fair. just for the record.
