We asked Bitch Fal­con to com­pile their ul­ti­mate In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day playlist

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

PJ Har­vey, Kamikaze The gui­tars are dis­gust­ingly good. Missy El­liot, Get Ur Freak On Missy ( right) thrived in a gross sec­tion of main­stream hip hop that was dom­i­nated by a bit too much mis­placed testos­terone. The Ronettes, Be My Baby It doesn’t mat­ter how old it gets.

Bey­oncé, Crazy In Love You couldn’t have a playlist with­out Bey­oncé.

Kate Bush , Wuther­ing Heights For burst­ing through that glass ceil­ing.

Soak, Sea Crea­tures Aren’t we so lucky here in our lit­tle is­land to have beau­ti­ful peo­ple like this singing us songs?

TLC, No Scrubs This was on the ra­dio for what felt like two years solid and yet we can still say it’s a bril­liant track. Tor­res, Strange Hel­los We think there’s a lot of similarities with her and Bitch Fal­con in this song.

St Vin­cent, Mar­row So much power in that cho­rus riff.

Fever Ray, I’m Not Done This song is just so won­der­fully crafted, much like all of Karin Drei­jer An­der­s­son’s work. The Knife, We Share Our Mother’s Health The vo­cals in this song in­flu­enced our sin­gle Wolf­s­tooth.

Björk, It’s Not Up To You Ob­vi­ously, all of her mu­sic is gold, but she re­ally can write a bass line.

Róisín Mur­phy, Gone Fish­ing Ev­ery­thing about it is just great.

FKA Twigs, Wa­ter Me Her ethe­real voice and min­i­mal in­stru­men­ta­tion cut right to the bone.

Le­muria, Bris­tles and Whiskers All killer, no filler.

Lady Gaga, The Edge Of Glory Love her or hate her, the lady knows how to write a killer tune.

Hia­tus Kaiyote, By Fire A must- lis­ten for any­one keen to ex­plore the realms of soul.

En Vogue, Don’t Let Go Need we even ex­plain this one?

My Bloody Valen­tine, Only Shal­low This is the sonic rep­re­sen­ta­tion of a hug, or a wave, or maybe even dy­ing ( in a lovely sort of way).

Camille, Ta Douleur She is a ge­nius.

Ri­hanna, Skin A com­pletely dif­fer­ent Ri­hanna, per­haps one you will only want to lis­ten to when in bed. Dirty.
