Am I the Only One celebrating? Happy Women's History Month



Happy Women's History month dear ladies and since it is your month i decided i would post some of my favorite females singing some of my favorite songs and first up is one Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, fucking hell do i love this woman and she had to run off and marry Spike Jonze which just proves that life's not fair, of course this song was written for Angus of the Liars but i do believe it was really written for me, in fact i'm hoping some day, like the teenage boy that i am that a girl will sing this to me and hopefully her name will be Karen O. For the record i think Karen is all class, substance and style and if you watch enough of her you'll realize that there is a talentless hack running around co-opting many of the things Karen did some 7 or 8 years ago, that is when the talentless hack is not ripping off Madonna but hey i'm an indie kid at heart and in my book Karen O. is the fucking bee's knees. This song is one of the greatest love songs ever written in my book.

No way. We're just way too busy celebrating. Great song, but I'm not sure if she's singing about you or maps, or whatever it is. Pretty simple song but she packs a lot of emotion into it. ;)

Hey, why don't they spread these things around? I've never heard of Karen O. So thank you.

I have 1 wife + 2 daughters. We've surmised that even the fish is female. I am drowning in the estrogen sea at home. It's ALWAYS Woman's History Month at my place.

Hooray for Karen O, hooray for that song, and hooray for those tears she cries because they're poetic.

I once thought about doing sommink like this. I got as far as making a playlist of songs with female vocals. It was about 120 songs long. I just looked at it and added about another 30 numbers.
