If Women in Music wins, I hope that we can have very clear standards for which songs would fit (and not fit) under this umbrella. Cause from right now, I have no idea what that even means.

I've considered just having it be songs with women as the lead singer, but I also think I might count bands with female members but male lead singers (i.e. Talking Heads, Velvet Underground, Smashing Pumpkins), but only if the song is a good display of the female musician's abilities. And Bono doesn't count as a woman.

That's subjective, don't you think? And that begs the question, what's the rubric for a good "woman" song?

It's a list. It's destined to be subjective. And a good "woman" song is, simply put, a song by a woman, with emphasis on songs about women's lib (Respect, You Don't Own Me, etc.). Just a salute to the greatest female musicians ever.

Should we focus on songs about women's liberation then, or stay general?

Both! But extra points to the women's lib songs.

Stevie, I would like to suggest that you save the Women in Music poll for later, and make it a major poll. It's a good idea, even if it needs a little work, but it's too big. Do the poll at a later time.

Alright. Since it's tied with the Smiths list, that's what we'll probably do next.

Sorry, I created a tie again. ha ha The women in music poll is very intriguing and one worth exploring to the fullest extent with so many possibilities. However, I voted for the Smiths poll. Please forgive me. Both are due!

You may indeed. And I think that "women in music" list may come sooner than expected, being Women's History Month and all.
