Musicians That The Mentas Love.
All through March, in honor of Women’s Month, I will be hitting you up with playlists that only feature the finer of the two genders.  This week we are going to focus on where I’m from and what I’ve discovered.  The first half of this playlist consists of some of the great female musicians that my parents played for me when I was growing up. I’ve always felt lucky to have the parents that I do who have raised me on great music.  We never really listened to a lot of modern music when I was very young. Sure, that means I missed out on Pearl Jam but it also means that we missed out on New Kids On The Block (and other music that was popular but complete garbage).  So rather than raise me on the popular music of the late 80s/early 90s, they raised me on the classics.  Call it brainwashing, but you can also call it good parenting.  Like, I never had a ‘Joni Mitchell phase’ – thanks to my parents, I’ve always liked Joni Mitchell.  I’ve had a crush on Stevie Nicks for as long as I can remember. I’ve known at a very young age that Tapestry is an essential element of any credible record collection. And I’ve known that the true inspiration of “You’re So Vain” is a mystery.  Thank you Mom and Dad!
That being said, I’ve also discovered a good amount of music on my own, many of which are by women. These last 11 songs are some of my favorite female musicians that my parents did not introduce me to.  True to form, this is mostly a modern list (I know Gillian Welch, Tori Amos, Norah Jones aren’t THAT new…but they are compared to music from the 60s and 70s!).  I’m assuming you are familiar with most of the modern musicians here, but if you aren’t you need to be.  In particular, run, don’t walk, to your nearest record store and get any and every album they have by Tori Amos, Phoebe Bridgers, Florence + The Machine and Kacey Musgraves.  And yes, you should also do this for Taylor Swift and Gaga, but I am assuming you already have those albums. Also, Dua Lipa – I love everything she puts out.  Future Nostalgia was easily one of my top 2 or 3 favo albums from 2020 and I still listen to it frequently.  What an album.  What a message.

Musicians from my favourite playlist which I named ‘Pure Beetroot’ due to the many beats.

My folks were always putting him down
They said he came from the wrong side of town
They told me he was bad but I knew he was sad
That's why I fell for the leader of the pack.

Every Shangri-Las song was written by someone who’s read Wuthering Heights, watched the Wild One, and had music explained to them but never actually heard it.
