One of my favorite lady musicians for all time has to hands down be Stevie Nicks. Of all the super badass ladies to come out of the 60’s, 70’s and even the 80’s, Stevie Nicks is the OG of being yourself, loving who you are and not being the “nice” girl.
Why, you may ask, did I call her the White Witch rather than by her name? Great question! Two reasons, actually.
First, Coven (as in American Horror Story) was probably one of my favorite seasons and Misty Day was an incredible character who had the right idea about being powerful but needing to tout it around like what's-her-face (Emma Roberts’ character).
Second, her persona as Rhiannon, which is based loosely in a Welsh myth, which if you don’t know about British culture B.C., you’re missing out. What an incredibly rich and sophisticated mythology the Welsh, Celts, and Scotts had! </nerd>
But honestly, it’s more the Misty Day thing. I’m in the same boat. With all her twirling and beauty and layers of chiffon, I first fell in love with Miss Nicks as a child on the cover of Rumors. The rest, as they say, is history.
So enjoy this week's playlist. I encourage you to listen old school. Don’t listen in the car or at work or on the treadmill. Lay on the floor of your bedroom, close your eyes and let the music take you away. You can spare an hour.
