Good morning ladies!
I mean afternoon. Good afternoon! "Good morning" just sounds chipper. Anyway, this is a double dedication because it was spurred by dual inspiration. The above is a new favorite Kristin song. Or, rather, it's a new favorite Jenny song - no predicting that Kristin, she's a pistol. And the video, unlike most I post (as a mode of sharing the song) is worth a serious viewing. I mean, the pleather dress! That accidental smile! The bouffant! I'm almost in love.
So I'm thinking "girl music." When it was first mentioned last night, and I thought, "WORD. Grrrl music":
I like Grrrl! Which, as it turns out, was simply a mental misspelling on my part. Girl, not grrrl. And then it got hard for me - because what is that, girl music? And do I still like it? Yeah, still. Because I used to be all about the girl music, if by girl we mean girl + piano and/or guitar, which we do. Last night, I said I'd found some knew girl-type music and Kristin made a face, like, no, you didn't. Like I don't still enjoy girl + piano and/or guitar.
But the truth is, of my somewhat unreliable iTunes 50 Most Played Songs, only one features just a girl's voice (Kathleen Edwards, my goodness) and another three play up a boy/girl pairing or the girl's voice within the group (The XX, The Dutchess and the Duke, Camera Obscura). These gals, boy band members or not, should really count:
Oh! And I'm a little bit into her:
Ha. Get it? A LITTLE BIT! I am not, however, as nuts about this band as most:
They're brand new, but they're not the best thing since brie on baguette. I mean, RIGHT? Good video. Fine band. I like, but I do not love. There are, however, some girls I'm still spinning toward, even if they're a little less my go-to but:
And she' a classic. With a piano! And is also nice.
P.S. Another piano, she makes me tear up and shiver.
