Wednesday Playlist:
You've Come A Long Way, Baby Part 2

Last week we looked at the female singers and groups of the 1950s and 1960s. To quote Lesley Gore it was mostly "Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows". Since then females have come a long way in music and are no longer limited to singing bubble gum songs with the goal of hitting the Top 40.

Here are 45 Fabulous songs from female musicians in the last 15 years. While this is my longest playlist yet, I still feel as though I could add more. I would love to see some comments on which female musicians you would have loved to see included.

The language and content of some of the songs may not be appropriate for those under 18.

Great Playlist - again!!! Love the female vocalist theme.

Nice choices Mollie! If we enough comments maybe they're be a Part 3!

I haven't heard of some of those so thanks for the education! :) I can't live without: Imogen Heap... she is a goddess, especially live.
And most people haven't heard of Eva Cassidy because she died of cancer way too young, but her voice slays me.

You have a bunch of my faves in here. However, a bunch of them owe a lot to Siouxsie and Debbie Harry. A track from Santogold would be nice too.
