These are just a few of the female artist, songs, or bands that I sorta feel don’t get enough credit. There are so many more that I would love to add as forgotten but I have to keep it somewhat limited. A couple of them are repeats from other post like Into Dust because I really just think it is such a beautiful song.
Hole made the list BECAUSE while she might live as the infamous wife of Kirk Cobain and (some feel) she rode the coattails of her late husband, she still was an artist and she still did the work and I think she deserves to be mentioned because Doll Parts expresses something that I am familiar with and I THINK it shows a different side to her that was overlooked because of what happened. So she had to live in the shadows of her husband and I find the song ironic.
Still others make the list because they really meant something to me like Stay by Lisa Loeb and What’s Up by 4 Non Blondes. Surely however, this is not the end all of great female artist or bands that I absolutely love like Tory Amos, Natalie Merchant, Natalie Imbruglia, Sinead O’Connor, Garbage or Enya (save for another post) but for some that seem mostly forgotten.
These aren’t in any order but if I had to pick my favorites it would be Portishead, Mazzy Star and Zero 7.
I don’t think this first song is the official video for Wondering Star but I like the album version better than the official video version.
