    this is the thread to celebrate those women who defy this line (a quote by aspiring indie songwriter/singer/musician kaytee bodle's "girls with guitars")
    they're inspiring
    they are curageous
    hard working
    their words, melodies, voices, and emotion touch us.
    some, in ways no male musician can.

    props going out to women who make music with no compromises.

    and i wish her insight
    to battle love's blindness
    straight from the milk of human kindness
    a safe place for all
    the pieces that shatter
    learn to pretend there's more than love that matters

    i said love will come to you
    hoping just because i spoke the words
    that they're true
    that if i offered up a crystal ball and looked through
    where there's now one
    there will be two

    yay granola!

    shakira is not to be judged on a song which was mainly used to get attention of north american media
    besides, the english trabnslation (which i believe was done by gloria estefan, dear god) is terrible! it makes her looks like a floozy.

    if you were to listen to her older stuff and read the lyrics in her words then you woudl see that she is more than ass & titties

    thank you for destroying one of the purposes of this thread.

    some lyrics, the ones that i was listening to and prompted me to start this thread...


    out of the night, into the water
    we push the boat from shore
    breaking the air and the stillness of the bay

    intensity of stars reflected in the harbour
    silently ignite
    the oar dips into oil like water
    and we are away

    your hand won't write
    not tonight
    but your mind may wander
    into those deep lagoons that you know
    and your boat will go by starlight alone
    da da da da da da da da
    you sang to the moon
    in the great black night
    with no lodestar in sight

    out of the night
    out of the water
    we pull the boat back to shore
    breathe in the air and the stillness of the bay
    intensity of stars reflected in the water
    silently ignite
    the oar dips into oil like water
    and we are away

    under the moon in the great black night
    with no lodestar in sight

    and wait for it
    there are only two things now
    this great black night
    and the fireglow

    and listen! the darkness rings
    the darkness....

    listen! the darkness rings

    and wait for it
    there are only two of us now
    this great black night, scooped out
    and this fireglow

    listen! the darkness rings
    the darkness...
    listen! the darkness rings
    take off your things

    and listen!
    the darkness rings
