Another shot from the past, this one features two pretty good vocalists sharing a rock song, ‘Sisters Are Doing It for Themselves’. I enjoyed Annie Lennox and Aretha Franklin on their own, and this coupling worked like an Oregon Pinot Noir with a sharp white cheddar.
While the beat moves me, I like the song’s thrust, that women are taking care of their own business. I’m a feminist and applaud that attitude. As former enlisted military and a careerist, we knew early on, you got to take care of yourself. Nobody else is going to do it for you. But the song, and we, recognized that we’ll do better by doing it for ourselves by doing it together as a group. Working together to change your situation is the best way to approach it.
For your song today, The Eurythmics with Annie Lennox, joined by Aretha Franklin, from 1985. For fun, you may substitute, “Writers are doing it for themselves.” It fits with NaNoWriMo, don’t you think?
