Amanda Palmer - Judy Blume

People keep asking me why I do things like I do
In all of this measuring influence I forgot you
You and me lying behind the Monhegan Hotel
And you told me things that nobody around me would tell
That was the summer when everyone touched me at once
It's like one day they ignored me, the next, they were all down my pants
But you were in bed with me, safe, before anyone else
You opened beside me and held me when I needed help
You and me lying together at night in my room
You've been inside me forever…Judy Blume

I couldn't carry a tune but I thought I could sing
No one had told me that thoughts were a good or bad thing
But I started noticing grown-ups would smile and cringe
You taught me that you could say anything you could think

[…]

All of them [the characters] lived in my head, quietly whispering:
"You are not so strange"
I don't remember the details of seventh grade
All I remember is lying and being afraid

[…]

All of them mixed up in my head like a love letter
All of those saying "Amanda you know better
You are not to blame
The world's a frightening place
So go on and think how you want
You will not be alone with your thoughts
Well you will, but you won't in a way
'Cause a girl thought it too in a book that the library bought"

People will keep asking me why I do things like I do
And from now on I'll tell them, Nick Cave, and I'll talk about you
Judy, I can't believe sometimes that I'm an adult
And the girls like I was think that I have this s**t figured out
You and me lying together at night in my room
You'll be inside us forever, Judy Blume

Songfacts - Only Women Bleed

Quote:
Contrary to what many listeners believed, this is not about menstruation and it does not advocate domestic violence. Cooper is singing about how women bleed from the heart, mind and soul. Several feminist groups protested this song, but it is actually a sympathetic look at domestic abuse. It's a rare song where Cooper doesn't try to shock, but takes the side of the victim.

Dick Wagner, who co-wrote the song with Cooper, told us: "It's really a song about domestic violence. It was misunderstood when it first came out. It was supposedly about a woman's period, but it wasn't. It was about a woman's subservient position in society to a man. I'm a firm believer that women are the superior sex. 'Only Women Bleed' was a liberating kind of song."

This ballad was a centerpiece of Alice Cooper's Welcome To My Nightmare tour, and his biggest hit from the album. Cooper performed the song with a single dancer, and it remained a part of his stage show for many of his concerts in the ensuing years. Alice told Mojo:

"I didn't realize it would end up as a woman's anthem. I just needed a ballad for Welcome to my Nightmare."

India Arie - Video

Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don't
Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won't
Depend on how the wind blows, I might even paint my toes
It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul

When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me
Every freckle on my face is where it's supposed to be
And I know my creator didn't make no mistakes on me
My feet, my thighs, my lips, my eyes, I'm loving what I see

I'm not the average girl from your video
And I ain't built like a supermodel
But I learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be
India Arie

Am I less of a lady if I don't wear panty hose?
My mama said a lady ain't what she wears, but what she knows
But I've drawn the conclusion, it's all an illusion
Confusion's the name of the game
A misconception, a vast deception
Something's gotta change…

This song was posted earlier in the thread, but this version is a bit different.

She's from the same era as Fiona Apple - I know Apple has been posted in here, so kinda surprised nobody posted any Poe. She has two pretty good albums. Control is from her 2nd. Here's one from her first.

Ani DiFranco - 32 Flavors

Squint your eyes and look closer
I'm not between you and your ambition
I am a poster girl with no poster
I am 32 flavors and then some
And I'm beyond your peripheral vision
So you might want to turn your head
Cause someday you are gonna get hungry
And eat most of the words you just said

God help you if you are an ugly girl
Course, too pretty is also your doom
Cause everyone harbors a secret hatred
For the prettiest girl in the room
And God help you if you are a phoenix
And you dare to rise up from the ash
A thousand eyes will smolder with jealousy
While you are just flying past…

Ani DiFranco - Not a Pretty Girl

I am not an angry girl
But it seems like I've got everyone fooled
Every time I say something they find hard to hear
They chalk it up to my anger
And never to their own fear
Imagine you're a girl
Just trying to finally come clean
Knowing full well they'd prefer you were dirty
And smiling…

A song composed for Mexico’s first female president:



https://youtu.be/mvebxXUQ3_A?si=EFMXfjYpgh7apyLg

Vivir Quintana - “Compañera Presidenta”

Quote:
”Que no te duermas sin deberle la justicia a las madres que ahora buscan por ahí a sus hijas entre fosas clandestinas,” reads a fragment of her song, translating to “That you do not go to sleep without owing justice to the mothers who are now searching out there for their daughters among clandestine graves.”Released Monday (May 27) night, the song honors the tireless work done by Mexican mothers searching for their missing children among the nearly 100,000 unaccounted for since 1962, according to official figures.
