In the old days, I preferred to listen to men. It was Elvis Presley and The Beatles. With ABBA and Shania Twain, I went over to the women. Being a songwriter, I have written for and recorded 25 women since 1978.

I like both men and women...both of them could be innovative but back in those time women who would sing about sex would be seen as temptations of the devil I guess...Ray Charles sang gospel while talking about love and sex...Millie Jackson was one of my favorite...did you ever see the cover of her album called "Back to the [censored]"? If you haven't then you should. I also like Nina Simone, and nowadays I listen a lot to Erikah Badu, I love her live performances and unique voice...Diana Krall is great too. And one of my favorite goth/celtic group called Therion's singer is a woman...:D
Am I the only one?

I became a fan of Jann Arden's when I saw her opening for Michael Bubl� in concert last month. Not only are her songs beautiful and touching, she was wickedly funny. I checked out her website when I got home and found her to be an intriguing personality as well. I can't understand why she hasn't had more hits since "Insensitive" back in 1995.
