6 Amazing female-fronted songs that make me go bonkers

I might or might not be in love with all of these ladies. Of course, my heart is reserved but you get my point.

Sprawl II by Arcade Fire: Good golly, there’s something so powerful about this song. I adore upbeat, bittersweet songs. It takes a lot of cues from Cyndi Lauper as well, one of AF’s heroes.

Winter by Tori Amos: I used to live in a house with some of my brothers, cousins, a bunch of misfits, friends who are no longer with us, ghosts, kittens and girlfriends. One of my best friends used to play this song (and the rest of the album) over and over. I seriously get chills when I hear this one.

Money Changes Everything by Cyndi Lauper: Damn, Cyndi, you can sing. And what great lyrics. This one always convinces people that Cyndi absolutely deserved her fame. Notice her style as well. So ahead of her time or, better yet, she is the reason for the styles these days.

When She Loved Me sung by Sarah McLachlan: Holy shit. Cry fest. Holy shit.

The Call from Regina Spektor: This is from one of those Lion and Wardrobe movies. The lyrics are almost silly in how simple they are, but god they are powerful. Who doesn’t want to hear that someone will be waiting for them?


Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell: This. Is. A. Song. The lyrics are simple, beautiful, remind me of something but I have no idea what. Good golly, what a song.
