♪“If it was a snake it would have bitten you” – Music Theme

Wow i’ve been remiss with this week’s theme, see what happens when we procrastinate!  The fabulous Ms Lisa of Underground Energy chose a cool southern idiom, “If it were a snake, it would have bitten you” as our theme. Interpreting as a northern Yank, it’s akin to stating the obvious, ie: “Duh, it’s as plain as the nose on your face“, or “Where are my glasses? Did you look on top of your head?”  My music selections will incorporate a 90’s punk/ grunge stench, to illustrate the point. What appears obvious to us now wasn’t so back then, it takes vision and “balls” to break outta the mold. ♥

Alternative feminist Kathleen Hanna, frontwoman for Bikini Kill was instrumental for empowering women to speak up about rape, domestic violence, societal injustices. She defined grrl power and started the “Riot Grrl” movement in the 90s.

♪Sister, sister where did we go wrong?
Tell me what the fuck we’re doing here
Why are all the boys acting strange?
We’ve got to show them we’re worse than queer

1, 2, 3, 4
SUCK MY LEFT ONE, SUCK MY LEFT ONE

Daddy comes into her room at night
He’s got more than talking on his mind
My sister pulls the covers down
She reaches over, flicks on the light
She says to him :

SUCK MY LEFT ONE, SUCK MY LEFT ONE

Mama says : You have to be a polite girl
You have got to be polite
Show a little respect for your father
Wait until your father gets home…
Fine fine Fine fine Fine fine Fine Fine♪

Bikini Kill – Girl Soldier live

♪Guess you didn’t notice
While we were crying
Guess you didn’t care
After all, only women were dying

I am sucking so many fucking times the likes of you
I am screaming with my hands and my heart
I am talking to your dead fucking eyes
You spread
My legs
Apart
Apart
Apart
Apart

Guess you didn’t notice
Why we were dying
I guess you didn’t give a fuck
After all, only women were dying
After all, only women were dying
After all, only women were dying
After all, only girls were dying

The war
At home
It’s here
Today
This crowd
Your house
Always
Girl
Soldier
Girl
Soldier♪
