femme fatale

Music is something I love. In most cases I can’t stand mainstream music, DJ’s or repetitive lyrics. Lyrics, I have always been fascinated by them.

Was a cactus blooming there as you watched the native boy?
In a flagstaff trailor court, you wrote the line
‘He kicked a tumbleweed and his mother called him home
Where the Arizona moon met the Arizona sun’

That’s from a song by the 10,000 Maniacs, ‘The Painted Desert‘. I could list so many more of Nathalie Merchants lyrics here, like the lyrics from ‘Verdi Cries’.

He will not touch their pastry
But every day they bring him more
Gold from the breakfast tray, I steal them all away
And then go, eat them on the shore

On this weeks (not a series, just every once in a while on Monday) Monday Mix features some of my favorite female artists. Some songs were once popular, some not, either way they may be obscure to you. I hope I may be introducing you to something new.

I don’t personally know many people that have the same taste as me. My friends and acquaintances usually like crappy top 40. I know that sounds rude. It is, if you listen to top 40. The thing is, if you are listening to top 40 it’s probably because you’re okay with record companies telling you what to listen to. I’ll admit it’s not all crap, but most of it is made just to sell and has no authenticity to it at all.

My boyfriend and I share interests when it comes to many artists. For example; Beck, Radiohead, The Strokes and even Billie Holiday (my favorite for summer evenings in the garden). My daughter and I like almost all of the same music. She once took me to a Placebo concert for my birthday ♥.

If you happen to like some of the genres I do, could you give me some tips as well?

I’m curious about your interests.
