One of the doubts that all of the fandom have over the artists they idolize is the music they scored in their childhood or adolescence, and that led them to their eventual musical vocation. Taylor Swift has developed a comprehensive list of 51 songs of women who inspired her to become a singer on the occasion of the Month of Women’s History.
“At the end of the Month the History of Women, I wanted to make a list of songs and artists who made the music that became the soundtrack of my life for a time, a phase, during my travels without end in the school bus, when I got my driving licence, or when being yelled at to brush for the hair, deciding finally that I also wanted to make music,” explains the american singer responsible for Lover.
In the listing that can be heard on the popular streaming platform Spotify are artists of different nationalities: from The Corrs to Shakira passing by Avril Lavigne, Jewel, Kelly Clarkson, Faith Hill, Sade, JoJo, Shania Twain or LeAnn Rimes among many others.
“I see these women as my mentors long ago, that taught me how music can really make someone’s life easier and more magical. These teachers guided me melodic, lyrical, spiritual, and emotionally without even knowing it. And although I have not met most of these women, always I will be grateful,” ends with Taylor Swift.
A musical side, and feminist Taylor Swift who has always done gala and whose last test came with the premiere of The Man with a letter in the most explicit and inspiring: “I’m so sick of running as fast as I can. Wondering if it would arrive faster if I were a man.” One more example of the struggle for appreciation of women in the music industry (and in any other sector).
In fact, in 2017 appeared on the cover of Time magazine with four other Silence breakers. One of the reasons was his support of the movement #MeToo, especially after the trial of the speaker David Mueller for having “handled” the ass in 2013.
