500 best songs ever a tad narrow in focus

This post was written by Friday guest blogger Emma Garman.

Dear phallocentric rock geeks,

Can I persuade you to lift your eyes from your navels long enough to comprehend the fact that the past few decades have featured many significant musical artists who don’t – I know this must be scary for you, but bear with me – have penises? May I recommend, to name just a few: PJ Harvey, Peaches, Tori Amos, Cat Power, Hole, Patti Smith, Garbage, Blondie, The Carpenters, TLC, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Donna Summer, Sleater Kinney?

Love, Emma x
