Music Mix, January 21, 2017
Playlist from the Saturday Night Music Mix, January 21, 2017.
The 2017 Women's March was today, and I've been amazed at the number of people involved both in the USA and worldwide. Washington DC was absolutely mobbed. The Denver Post reported that 100,000 people marched there. Here in Colorado Springs reports say 7000, in a city where marches and rallies are almost always tiny.
After hearing coverage all day via Twitter, NPR, and other sources, I decided that tonight's music mix would commemorate the event as best I could.
- Lyn Collins' amazing "Think (About it)", which I've mentioned here before.
- Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings doing their soulful rendition of "This Land is Your Land".
- Rasputina doing a wonderful and unique cover of the old Lesley Gore song "You Don't Own Me".
- Shonen Knife doing "Buttercup (I'm a Super Girl)", from "Heroes & Villains", a collection of songs inspired by the Powerpuff Girls. And later, the extended version of the Powerpuff theme song.
- Tracy Bonham's "Behind Every Good Woman". I cranked up the studio speakers for this, and I hope listeners did the same.
I had planned to play "I Am Woman", but the only version I could find in the station library was by Eek-A-Mouse. With all due respect to Mr. A-Mouse, it didn't seem to fit the show.
