No Radio, But Playlist

There was no radio show today, for reasons well beyond my control. This is a shame, because we had a great show reflecting on International Women’s Day planned, and I had put together a playlist of songs by women from around the world. As you can’t listen to it, I thought I might share the list with you here.

  • Barbados – Rihanna, “Only Girl in the World”
  • England/Pakistan – Bat for Lashes, “Horse and I”
  • Benin – Angélique Kidjo, “Voodoo Chile”
  • Australia – Merril Bainbridge, “Garden In My Room”
  • Germany – Nena, “99 Red Balloons”
  • Denmark – Savage Rose (Annisette Koppel), “Where Have All The Flowers Gone?”
  • Wales – Cerys Matthews, “Awyrennau”
  • USA – Diana Ross, “Theme From Mahogany”

Yeah, I was going to play a song in Welsh. That would have confused people.

Also I know nothing about music from most of Asia and South America. Feel free to enlighten me.

    Isabel Montiero from Drugstore is from Sao Paulo, and Lovefoxxx from CSS is from Campinas in Brazil. Shonen Knife are a three-piece all-female punk-pop band from Osaka :)

    Shakira is from Colombia. And since I’ve just seen Nymphomaniac in which she sings over the end credits, Charlotte Gainsbourg would cover UK/France.
