Playlist Time: Intense Bitches

Ugly feelings from unapologetically bold women.

No stranger’s feet will enter me
I wash the panesI clean the stains
Get out of my house! 

There’s a certain breed of female musicians that seems to make some men really uncomfortable…

It’s not so much the idea of female empowerment that intimidates them. Depictions of strong, fierce, independent women are well-embraced nowadays, and even if they don’t conform to the traditional idea of delicate, demure feminity, they’re still pleasant in a sexy way.

I’ve been a bad, bad girl
I’ve been careless with a delicate man
And it’s a sad sad world
When a girl will break a boy just because she can

But it’s those women who dare to be unpleasant who pose a real threat.

I’m a fountain of blood
In the shape of a girl
You’re the bird on the brim
Hypnotized by the Whirl

This is a playlist celebrating unapologetically bold women who sing about complex, ugly feelings. Sometimes they may scream intensely or seem dramatic and strange, but this is the female experience in all its intense, convoluted glory.
