Love Siouxsie’s dancing…

… I first heard this album when I was 17, 47 years ago, it was, literally, a mind-altering experience for me…

… fabulous song/gorgeous video…

… love surf rock, love the Bambi Molesters, who are from Croatia… I am from Wanganui, New Zealand, and was kind of astonished when they did a song called ‘Wanganui’, so looked it up, only to discover that it was, literally, about my home town… it was a homage to a 1950’s rock and roll film about Wanganui!…

Kate Bush leapt into my consciousness when I was 19 (the same age as she was), in 1978, with this fabulous, mezzo-like song…

… this is my absolute favourite Kate song… the video is total, confused, shit, just concentrate on her fabulous voice…

…Diane Coffee snuck under my radar and lodged ‘herself’ in my heart with ‘her’ amazing voice… not sure if any of the ‘woman’ in this vid are actually woman…

… Tracy Thorn’s voice is aural honey…

Total Control, by The Motels (awesome Martha Davis!) is one of my (many, many) all-time favourite singles…

… I’ve never heard a cover of it, until recently, when I heard this cover, by the fabulous, fabulous Angel Olsen and crew, who have perfectly, ethereally, re-invented it…

… Elle King is super-talented…

… absolutely adore Amy Lee!…

… not only does she have an incredible voice, but she can sing underwater!
