Phil, Tina and Ike
There is only one song that could qualify to make the top spot on Song of the Month. Decided by the number of times I've played it on repeat and felt my heart beating out the tune as I listen this month's title goes to 'River Deep, Mountain High' by Tina Turner.

Produced by Phil Spector the song was sold as an Ike and Tina Turner record but Spector, aware of Ike's controlling nature, paid Ike to stay away so the record only featured Tina's vocals and Spector's famous "Wall of Sound".

I could never do this song justice using whatever words i could come with to describe it so I'll just get straight to the point. Just listen and fall in love.

*MIXTAPE TAPE ALERT* Feminist Anthems Pt. 2

I promised you the second part of the Feminist Anthems mixtape and here it is. I think it's pretty cool, covers a number of genres and also has a few tracks that you might not have read a feminist meaning in but it's there.

Let me know if you agree, disagree or think I left some out. This is going to be the soundtrack to the next Feminist Tsunami so it's gotta good.
