KillgoreTrout On June - 21 - 2014

Welcome Planet peeps to another Weekend Music Thread! I thought this weekend’s theme would be Ladies Night, OK, Ladies afternoon, night and following day! 😉

I offer a tribute to all the wonderful women who’ve made great contributions to the world of music. Female singers, musicians and song writers of all genres have been extremely talented and creative ladies and deserve a special tribute. So pick your favorite ladies’ work and sit back and enjoy the picks of other Planet peeps out there.

Lover of books (especially the classics), all kinds of books from novels, poetry, essay collections, fiction and nonfiction and a big Kurt Vonnegut fan. I am a secular humanist and technically an atheist.....Taoist.

    I Am Woman

    -Artist: Helen Reddy from “Helen Reddy’s Greatest Hits”: EMI ST 11467
    -peak Billboard position # 1 for 1 week in 1972
    -Words and Music by Helen Reddy and Ray Burton

    I am woman, hear me roar
    In numbers too big to ignore
    And I know too much to go back an’ pretend
    ’cause I’ve heard it all before
    And I’ve been down there on the floor
    No one’s ever gonna keep me down again

    CHORUS
    Oh yes I am wise
    But it’s wisdom born of pain
    Yes, I’ve paid the price
    But look how much I gained
    If I have to, I can do anything
    I am strong (strong)
    I am invincible (invincible)
    I am woman

    You can bend but never break me
    ’cause it only serves to make me
    More determined to achieve my final goal
    And I come back even stronger
    Not a novice any longer
    ’cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul

    CHORUS

    I am woman watch me grow
    See me standing toe to toe
    As I spread my lovin’ arms across the land
    But I’m still an embryo
    With a long long way to go
    Until I make my brother understand

    Oh yes I am wise
    But it’s wisdom born of pain
    Yes, I’ve paid the price
    But look how much I gained
    If I have to I can face anything
    I am strong (strong)
    I am invincible (invincible)
    I am woman
    Oh, I am woman
    I am invincible
    I am strong

    FADE
    I am woman
    I am invincible
    I am strong
    I am woman

      Murph, women have so much strength. They can also have a lot of power and help get the right people elected.

      Excellent choice, Murph.
