Gareth Liddiard’s 5 Favorite Female Vocalists

“They’re just better at it, I don’t know why,” he says. “I just think physiologically and attiudedly, they’re just better at it. Men are better drummers, usually, but women are way better singers. A great male singer like Frank Sinatra doesn’t come close to someone like Ella Fitzgerald; she would just smoke him any day of the week.”

Yet another list of this guy namedropping artists and songs which this time is five female singers with a track each. The date was in May 2014, that’s a year after I See Seaweed album. Re-posting here again on my blog and lifted from double J radio linked here. The streaming thingy is broken and not working but off coarse, I found all five songs on YouTube and embedded them above.

I might, now be getting very close to re-posting all of these type of  whatever the hell you call this now? The complete posts of Gary L namedropping other’s music is:

  1. Wow! I have never really thought about it but (now that I do) there can be no denying that women are SO, SO MUCH better at singing than men.
    If a list was made of the ‘all-time greatest 100 singers’ would any male make the top 25? And comparing Ella Fitzgerald with Frank Sinatra? Come on …. that’s like comparing Donald Bradman with Bob Hawke.
