Rockin' Chicks

I'd have to say that there is a great dearth of female musicians in my music collection and I'm not sure why. Just because I feel like it, here are some pretty kick ass videos featuring female vocalists.

Sara Bareilles - "Love Song" (i know i'm super gay for liking this song but it's pretty awesome)

Dresden Dolls - "Girl Anachronism"

The New Pornographers - "Mass Romantic" (not the official video, but the best version of the song I could find online)

Melissa Auf der Maur - "Followed the Waves"

Metric - "I.O.U."

The Blow - "True Affection"

Cat Power - "He War"

Lily Allen - "Smile"

KT Tunstall - "Suddenly I See" (holy God am I gay)

Yael Naim - "New Soul"

The Fiery Furnaces - "Japanese Slippers"

Liz Phair - "Stratford-on-Guy"

Zero 7 - "Destiny (acoustic)"

Feist - "My Moon My Man" (everyone knows her from the iPod commercial but this whole album is pretty damn good)

And who could forget my future wife, Robin Sparkles....

That is the firs I've ever heard of Sara Bareilles being described as "kick ass." I'm not crazy about her, mostly because of those stupid-ass Rhapsody commercials.

You might want to check out Nouvelle Vague.

Ok so I knew like four of I getting that old that I don't know those? OR are you just old and listen to old people music? I love Robin Sparks... he..he.. Did you here her follow-up to lets go to the mall?? Its equally as hysterical.

Most of these songs are within the last 3-4 years, Trish, although they are not exactly mainstream smash hits so don't feel out of the loop. I'm sure you have a firmer grasp on modern popular music than I. I haven't yet seen the Robin Sparkles sequel but it's on my DVR. I can't imagine it topping the original, which changed my life.
