Hey Ladies! The 10 Most She-Tastic Artists of All Time
Why? Because men and women have different interests, for the most part. Think about it, boys: while you may want to play some Metallica, your girlfriend (or mom) may want listen to Sheryl Crow or Madonna.
As a counterpoint to our recent testosterone-mad countdown of the most "bro-tastic" bands of all time, Rocks Off now presents ten artists ladies love.
10. Wilson Phillips
When I went to see them at the Grand 1894 Opera House in Galveston this past June, I could have sworn that a good half or more of that audience was female. They have great harmonies, but are definitely a band that caters to women. They know their audience and cater to it well. For that, they deserve a great deal of respect.
Confession: I listen to them and even sing along in the car. Also, in college, I wanted to start a group akin to them (and their Christian counterparts, Point of Grace) with three friends. They weren't interested. Oh and they are pretty funny live: they kept bantering each other about various eyebrow raising subjects.
9. Celine Dion
Once upon a time, when schmaltzy pop ruled the airwaves circa the 1990s, Celine Dion was the queen of all that. Like Tom Jones, there are still some who like her.
Confession: When I was in 5th-7th grade, I thought Celine Dion was awesome. I would constantly watch VH1 (because I wasn't allowed to watch MTV), so I could see her VH1 Divas Live concert. I also got my mom and grandma to buy me copies of Falling Into You, Let's Talk About Love, A'I Olympia (a live French album recorded at the Paris Olympia) and more. Now that I'm older, I rarely listen to those albums and honestly, I think she sounds better in her native French than English.
8. Peter Cetera
If you listen to Peter Cetera's solo work, he really does seem to cater to and even celebrate women with songs like "Next Time I Fall," "Big Mistake," and even "Daddy's Girl" -- the latter of which was prominently used in Three Men and a Baby.
Confession: I own a copy of Solitude Solitaire and, yes, I did think he looked good when he made that video with Amy Grant. However, I quickly remind myself that he is only 67 and has a daughter who is only a few years older than I am. Also, I can safely assume that my mom probably had a big crush on him back in the '70s because she was (and still is) a fan of Chicago.
