Tasmanian singer-songwriter, Lasca Dry recently shared her new single, The Ocean. To celebrate the release, the singer has curated a collection of songs for MILKY full of tracks she thinks ooze with big female energy!
“This is a song about expressing the feminine through elements in nature, using the ocean as a metaphor, and the different forms that the ocean takes on: the smooth, the calm, the crazy, and everything in between-and it’s an affirmation of how beautiful that spectrum is. It’s about women, but mostly about myself, and how we have a vast internal world, and how necessary the feminine is for the existence of everything.” the singer shares of the track.
HEART OF GLASS - BLONDIE
This song has such a beautiful way of expressing how a woman feels after heart break. I really like the metaphor in the title line; a heart can be beautiful but easier shattered.
FEVER - PEGGY LEE
I love how this song relays a feeling of sexiness, you can just see her hips swaying from side to side.
I PUT A SPELL ON YOU – NINA SIMONE
Magic! Although one might say “possessive”, so powerful and self-assured.
DO RIGHT WOMAN, DO RIGHT MAN - ARETHA FRANKLIN
Absolutely love the meaning behind this song; says it all in the title! We’re the same baby! Show me you love me, and I’ll show you too!
SOMEBODY TO LOVE – JEFFERSON AIRPLANE
Absolutely love this song! Grace Slick’s voice is so powerful, it shows a woman at her most emotionally vulnerable, while still showing poise in its delivery.
DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF ME – MAMA CASS
Mama Cass’ version of this song! Soo sweet and beautiful, falling into a dream world of little girl dreams.
LOVE ISN’T A RIGHT - MOLLY DRAKE
You might not have heard of Molly Drake! She was Nick Drake’s mother. The way she expresses her ideas about love in this song, and her beautiful motherly voice reveals a mature, intelligent lady.
DREAMS - FLEETWOOD MAC
Stevie Nicks talks about a break-up, showing all her sadness, but giving him his freedom. Even though she’s sad, she still knows that life flows on for everyone.
THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKIN’ – NANCY SINATRA
Such a classic song by Nancy along with such a powerful video clip. Super-sexy, getting the legs out, having some girly fun.
YOU DON’T OWN ME – LESLEY GORE
Lesley singing about being a woman but being human and powerful! This song shows a young woman expressing her ideas on how she should be treated.
