Wise women and sisters?

March 2, 2012

Long before my daughter went to Brazil, I collected the music of women. It is a very eclectic collection, but mostly Rock, Blues and a little Jazz – in all forms; vinyl, CDs and now more MP3s. However since ‘M’ left home I have collected even more and she has since joined me by adding videos onto Facebook.  So our huge collection of music ranges from the late 1950s to the present day and now has a beautiful hint of Latin America. From Carol King to Rana del rey.

I could wax lyrical about my collection for days, each one song has a story – some make me cry and others make me laugh.

I adore Maggie Bell and her version of Only women bleed really rocks my boat in more ways than one. I am in awe of the the male song writer Alice Cooper!

A Christmas favourite is Fairytale of New York by the Pogues and Kirsty MacColl we know every word.   Another one I love to sing loud is Helen Reddy’s I am a woman, this was written in 1975, a no 1 hit and the theme music for the United Nations International Woman’s year.  It’s a song I play when I need motivation and womanly assurance.

And when I want to be transported to Brazil, then it just has to be Ana Carolina singing Brasil corrupção I do not understand a word but it sounds good.

So lots of wise women …. But my all time favourite is this one I hope I can be forgiven – although it does fit my paradigm –  it doesn’t … this one makes me feel good, happy and sad. Let me know what you think.
