Having listened to Stripped by Christina Aguilera, for the last few days, I’ve also been listening to some of the other female singers I have in my collection. First was P!nk – M!ssundaztood. As soon as I had refreshed my ears to that album, I needed to investigate just why Christine Aguilera sounds so much like Pink on half the album. Easy! Linda Perry wrote or co-wrote and produced four of the tracks on Christina’s album (including Beautiful) and six or seven of the tracks on Pink’s! Linda Perry was the huge voiced lead singer from 4 non blondes. More on Linda here, here, and here.
I’ve also listened to Joan Armatrading, Tracy Chapman, Melanie C., Avril Lavigne, Norah Jones, and Marianne Faithfull today. Of course I’ve got lots more ladies to listen to tomorrow.
