From the early Sixties...prior to the rise of second wave feminism of the late Sixties and Seventies...a unique piece of pop.

That brings back memories. I first heard that song as a kid and my mom had to explain to me what it was about. :lol:

Here's two more by Karliene called "Elizabeth's Lullaby". The first is a rather mournful song by Elizabeth's mother Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII who if I can be completely frank despite her personal flaws I still feel pity for the way her husband disposed of her for not providing him with a son (only a surviving daughter named Elizabeth who grew to became a great queen). I mean having her executed for crimes she obviously did not commit shows whatva real bastard he was...

When hearing this song I like to imagine that while holding her baby daughter she was thinking how Elizabeth was the only good thing to come out of her marriage to the king of England



And here's a more epic version of the lullaby song about Queen Elizabeth I when she rises to power and becomes the Queen of England, and goes down in history as one of their greatest leaders. :queen:

^ Some of recorded history is so strange that it almost doesn’t feel real to me. It seems more like what one would read in a novel. Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction.

Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today
Is a day of reckoning
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day

I also like Katherine's theme from the remake of Resident Evil 2, in fact I really like her whole playable level. :mrgreen:



This young girl was the daughter of Raccoon City's mayor and in the story's official timeline she meets her tragic end when the corrupt Chief of Police who was obsessed with her abducts and murders her while zombies have taken over the city.

BUT there's an extra level that changes the story to where she survives her encounter with the police chief by grabbing a knife at the last second and stabbing him in the neck. Then she grabs his gun and the knife and braves the zombie-infested to find her boyfriend Ben so that they can escape the city together.

I like seeing the damsel become the heroine. :D

Here's another good one by Karliene from the show "The Witcher".

I've not seen the show or played the game...

But the gist I get from this video is that a young girl is born with a deformity and gets bullied and abused by everybody, then her father sells her off to some witchy lady who trains her to be a powerful sorceress and she still suffers in this training academy until she uncovers her own power. Not only does she use it to make herself beautiful in appearance but she also gains her own sense of power and control.

I like seeing that too. It’s probably something that would’ve been useful for me to see more of when I was younger.

I imagine it would have been useful for a lot of young girls to have more positive female role models back in the day.

To be honest I know it might sound strange but this is why I love horror movies so much, or at least the good ones. Many of the classic horror films actually had leading female characters who despite being terrified were capable survivors and not afraid to fight back, many were also intelligent women who would solve the mystery of what was happening around them.

Some of my favorite examples were Susie Bannon in Suspiria, Rosemary Woodhouse in Rosemary's Baby, Lila Loomis in Psycho, Jennifer Corvino in Phenomena, Wendy Torrence in The Shining, Sarah in Day of the Dead, Grace in The Others, Tracey in Pumpkinhead, etc.

I guess what I'm trying to say is some of the best horror movies had stronger and smarter female characters than a lot of action movies did. 8)


Anyways I apologize for straying off topic again. :oops:

Maybe this song of a witch singing to her daughter will make up for it? :)

I’ve always been too much of a chicken to watch most horror movies. I can handle old ones like Psycho or more recent ones that aren’t gory or that don’t contain stuff like torture. Most often, if it’s rated R, it’s too much for me. I’ve tried desensitizing myself when it comes to fictional movies and books, but I got nowhere with that. Stuff that I see or read can bother me for days or weeks. It’s absurd.

Yeah good point... I forget sometimes that not everyone likes horror so I apologize. :oops:

But if it's any consellation I'm not a fan of those "torture porn" horror movies either. I enjoy horror more for the plotline than I do the blood and gore, and I guess some of those movies I listed were really more like supernatural thrillers than actual horror...

Here's a celtic song about The Morrigan. She was the Goddess of War and Battle linked to fertility and death.



Knowing that the Ancient Celts had actual warrior women in their tribes like Boudica who were treated with respect and didnt take crap from men makes me proud to have Irish ancestry on my mom's side of the family. 8)

Thought of two more from a movie I loved as a kid "The Prince of Egypt".

Regardless of religious beliefs I still think that this movie was beautiful. And it's interesting to me that Moses had not one but two mothers in his life who really loved him and wanted to keep him safe: his Hebrew mother who placed him in the basket and set him adrift on the Nile River so he could have a chance to escape from the Egyptian soldiers who were ordered to kill every infant son belonging to their slaves, and his adoptive mother the Egyptian Queen and wife of the Pharoah who found the baby washed ashore and thought nothing of taking him in as her own son, believing Moses to be a blessing sent by her gods.

I really like the songs sung by both of his mothers. Aside from Yahweh and his terrifying plagues it was really both his mothers who kept him safe and protected him. :heart:





I loved this movie because despite being based off the story of Moses leading his people out of Egypt, it did not feel like religious propaganda. And believe me growing up in the Bible Belt I've been subjected to a lot of that. :lol:

How about Catwoman's theme in Batman Returns? :cat:

I also really like the scene itself. The way she trashes her tacky pink apartment destroying everything she clinged to that reminded her of everything she hated about herself. She's now on a quest for revenge against her boss who thought he could try to murder her and get away with it.

I really like this Mexican song about the absurdity of being called a feminazi.



Some of the lyrics in (awkward) English:

Just for being a brave and not fragile woman
A virtual mystery
Wanting to provoke me
He called me a Feminazi.

How should one respond?
There can be little insult that can compare
While he gloated
I remembered some wise advice:
Ignore the ignorant

But I told him: How little
Oh, but how little,
How little mental maturity could you have?
How little, oh, but how little
How little sensitivity do you have to have?
To take something so cruel
So historically hurtful
And try to use it to impose yourself

But one detail failed you:
I am the one who walks the streets in fear

Don't call me Feminazi, no,
Have respect for an entire population that suffered.

And he answered me:
Feminazi, Feminazi, Feminazi,
Libertina go home, go iron your husband's clothes
Feminazi, Feminazi,
Your place is the kitchen

And tell me, according to you, where are
My gas chambers?

Don't call me Feminazi, no,
Just because my self-esteem threatens you

I like this one. :) Yeah feminazi is a term I really don't like, right along with Karen. :lol:

I just personally feel like both terms are being abused to shut women up so that they won't complain. To take away their self esteem etc. Both terms are basically the same as being called a "b***h" which isn't right imho. :|

Here's another good one. "The Willow Maid" about a fairy in the woods who meets a young man who wants to make her his wife, but she refuses to leave the sanctuary of her willow tree. So he returns with an axe to chop her sacred tree down and drag her out of the forest by force, so she transforms into a beautiful flower to escape him.
