Tune in Tuesday with Two Female Artists

It's been awhile since I did Tune in Tuesday, but I'm back this week with two songs by female artists. Join in on Tune in Tuesday by visiting Katelyn at Kate's Tales of Books and Bands.

The last couple times I did Tune in Tuesday, I focused on male artists I was currently enjoying, so this time around, I wanted to include two songs by female singers. I don't really have a preference when it comes to guy and girl singers, but I find myself enjoying songs sung by guys more often.

What about you? Do you find yourself preferring one gender over the other?

"Summertime Sadness" by Lana Del Rey

"Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you're the best"

"Royals" by Lorde

"But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom.
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your time piece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don't care we aren't caught up in your love affair"

Lorde, real name Ella, is only 16 years old and from New Zealand!

I really like Lana Del Ray's Summertime Sadness! I'd never heard of Lorde before so I'll be checking her music out! Thanks for sharing a brilliant post with us! :)

I like both of these songs, although both are a touch overplayed.

And yeah, I prefer female singers.

I tend to prefer male artists...in fact, of all my Tune in Tuesday entries, I think only 1 or 2 of them feature women! And now I feel bad...

I actually haven't listened to either if these, but my friend insists I will love Lourde. Thanks for sharing!

You know, for me it depends on mood I think. Because there are definitely times when I listen to mostly guys for hours at a time, and times when I'm listening to female artists for hours. And I think I might sing along to female artists more than men, heh. Looove Lana Del Rey.

I'm a bit late to the Royals party (I only heard it for the first time a few weeks ago) but I love it! Great female picks :)

I am really like The Royals!

Lorde is only 16?! Wow! I don't have a preference for male or female. It's all about their voice, and ability, that's it!
I'm really liking both of these, thanks for sharing with us!

Summer Time Sadness is so pretty. I don't have a preference for male or female singers, just for what speaks to me. :)

Medeia Sharif said...

This is the first time I'm hearing Lorde.

I adore Lana Del Rey.

I loved Summertime Sadness but then they started playing it 24/7 so it got boring. I have never heard of Lorde, but this song is really nice. Thanks for sharing :)

Melanie said...

I am a huge fan of female artists but I do enjoy some songs sung by male voices. It really depends.

Thanks for sharing, Lauren! <33

I don't have a preference between male and female artists - it's all about the actual music. But lately I also seem to be gravitating towards male artists. Thanks for sharing these - I hadn't heard either!
