Don’t cha?

Has anyone else noticed that the new volume of Women & Song has a track by the Pussycat Dolls on it? Anybody else annoyed?

Not that I was attached to the series… or ever owned any of the other nine compilations. If I like an artist I’ll just get their cd. And I like a woman with a bit more spitfire and sass then you tend to find on these things (please see Amos, Tori and Elliot, Missy). But I could swear that when this series started it was about real female musicians - and not troops of highly skilled pole dancers that pretend to sing. (OK, one of them sings.)

The Pussycat Dolls? Honestly. If they don’t want us to think all the decisions are made by fat old men with cigars who love nothing better than to think of new ways to exploit women for profit, they shouldn’t act like it.
