“Even It Up” by Heart (1980)

19 01 2016

Ann and Nancy Wilson kick ass.  And they were kicking ass before it was acceptable for women to do so.  The musicianship is stellar, tight, and tasty, a testament to all the band members.  But the Wilson sisters were power and glory and proved that rock is not just a boys’ game.  Their influence is huge.

And not only could they rock, they shoved some truth and defiance into the dialog.

“Now something tells me you’re
going to use me again
You think you can lay down the how and
the where and the when”

Bad. Ass.

Your grandma loved this song, and her Heart LP’s.  She was a badass, too.
