I've always found it fascinating that women tend to emulate men in popular music. When they don't, it's made difficult for them, or at least "challenging". Let me clarify. Women dominate Broadway and country music- two genres not considered "serious" by most folks in music. But when it comes to rock, blues and what a lot of people consider "serious" music, women tend to fall by the wayside. The rarities are Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin, Diamanda Galas and... who? I guess my point is this- women tend to try to emulate men in rock, when they should just be themselves. I think many women have a very distinct voice that they silence in the interest of being popular. I find that disappointing. We need more Janis Joplins, Billie Holidays and Amy Winehouses. Original voices that have never been heard before. Case in point being Portishead. That's just my own rant. I would like to see more ladies like Siouxie Sioux step up and make us listen. Ladies- music needs you.
