31 Days of Digital Mixtapes, Day Four:
These Women Rock
Admittedly, I had several versions of this mix before finally settling on these ten tracks. Earlier incarnations of my “These Women Rock” mix included self-professed industry divas, Motown stars, rappers, and pop stars. My original idea was to have a mix of women who I think kick ass for one reason or another. The problem is, even though I had some true heavy hitters in the music industry, the feel of this digital mixtape just didn’t feel right. It’s a shame, because I really wanted MC Lyte to make an appearance on here. I guess I’ll just have to have future installments that are more genre-specific throughout the month.
I have just about every era covered on this mix. From Heart, Janis, and The Runaways to Alanis and Pink, the women I added to this mixtape are absolutely amazing singers, songwriters, and performers. Feel free to offer up your thoughts and picks for your own “Women Who Rock” mix in the comments below.
