What Are You Listening To? Wednesday

I don't like a lot of chick musicians.

I suppose that's just being unfair, but if you put all the bands/singers I like in a list, I'm sure 85% of them are dudes.

I don't know why. Same thing with comedians. You gotta have something special if you're a chick and you want me to take notice.

Ok Feminists, you can flame me all you want, this is your chance.

Now that you got that out of your systems...

I do, however, like a few. And I love Imelda May. Her album 'Love Tattoo' was one of our in-store play CDs at the bookstore a few months ago.

Imelda May is originally from Dublin. Her music mainly has a rockabilly feel, but there's some blues thrown in for good measure. She sings and plays the bodhrán.

'Big Bad Handsome Man' is my favourite song. Very sexy, very slinky. Makes me want to put on a tight satin dress and sip a martini.

A dirty martini. *phwoar*

Imelda May has a fantastic, distinctive voice and a striking look. She just started touring in the U.S. this year. I'm hoping she widens the scope of cities in the future, because they've all been too far away from me.

December 2010 through February 2011 she's in Ireland and England, so if you live in these places you should go down and check her out. Just to make me jealous.

You can see her playing on her bodhrán in 'Johnny Got A Boom-Boom'.

She's coming out with a new album called 'Mayhem' this October 4th. This is the title cut from the album.

If you'll excuse me, I've got to get up and dance now...

Why thank you!

I celebrated with 'second breakfast'. ;)

Kimberly said...

NICE!! Great intro...thanks! I love her 'Johnny's got a boom-boom'. I definitely have to check out more of her music.
I just finished mowing and rockin out to music that keeps me going...Bodies by Drowning Pool, This is War by 30 Seconds to Mars, The Good Life by Three Days Grace, Leave out all the Rest by Linkin Park and Headstrong by Trapt. It keeps me mowing, even when it's hot out.

Trapt and Drowning Pool were just in Jacksonville here a couple of weeks ago. There was this all day festival called Noon to Moon that was pretty popular. Buck Cherry was there as well...Avenged Sevenfold too I think. My friends said that Trapt put on the best show though.
