The Women

Last week I chose three songs by men who I love. Today I have added three new songs by women who I love. So I can't say these are the only female artist who top my list because musically I am all over the place. What I can say is that I have seen these three women multiple times live in concert and they are fantastic.

India Arie's "Strength, Courage, and Wisdom" is a song that I feel represents a lot of women. Ones I know, ones who read my blog and whose blogs I follow, and myself. Whether you are following a dream, completed one, or living one you have to embody these attributes.

Jill Scott's "My Love". I love her voice and love this song. It was hard for me to pick one song by her. When I am playing this song in my car I have to remember to open my eyes because I could cause an accident. I really sing my heart out. (lol)

Erykah Badu's "Didn't Ya Know". So people my not understand Erykah, may think she is a little out there. Sometimes I agree, but the woman has a wonderfully unique voice. This song came out when I first moved back to St. Louis. I played it over and over again. I love singing Badu songs. They have so many harmonies.
You will hear more from these ladies.

Peace, Love, and Music

  1. Well, Jill Scott is high on my list for great female artist. I not very familiar with India & Erykah music, but like India's "I Am Not My Hair" and Erykah's "Next Lifetime." But Jill is my girl and I love all of her songs. Thanks for sharing your women tunes...but the men tunes are the best. :-) Ain't nothing like a man singing about a women.

    Love ya!!!
