Who is the fairest of them all?
The other day my adorable and ever sweet and sexy peanut brittle put on the Cowboy Junkies for dinner. I remembered I had seen that the Cowboy Junkies come to Ithaca in February. As Margo sweetly sang BLUUUUUE MOOOOOON I told my peanut brittle:
"Sweetie, don't take this wrong, but there is something about Margo Timmins voice that, well, drives me wild. And dear sweet darling, please don't be jealous, but Suzanne Vega and...." she interrupted "and Kate Bush too?"
" NONONO I like Kate Bush, but SHAWN COLVIN honey. And of course..." I gasped and grabbed my water "KIM GORDON OF SONIC YOUTH".
If Missus G can admit her innocent crushes on Paul Newman and that guy with the lank hair who did the pirate movies, and if Farmer's Wife can dream of Val Kilmer and Cheri can lust after her own iphone...
then I can admit my great appreciation for certain female songwriters. The list here, of course, is merely my top 4 favorites...
Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth
