In search of songs

that fit all of these criteria:

  • were written by at least two people
  • at least one of those people is/was a woman
  • have a choral arrangement available

So far, I’ve come up with:

  • Let it Go (Frozen)
  • Loco-motion, Will You Love Me Tomorrow, One Fine Day, Up On the Roof (written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin)
  • Where You Lead (Gilmore Girls theme)
  • Strawberry Wine (sung by Deanna Carter)
  • I Got You Babe (Sonny and Cher) (I refuse to sing this)
  • Just Give Me a Reason (P!nk and that guy)
  • Love Shack (The B-52’s)
  • Superstar (made famous by the Carpenters)
  • anything by the Indigo Girls (apparently they don’t write together)
  • She Keeps Me Warm (lesbian anthem)
  • Time After Time (Cyndi Lauper)

Not all of these have choral arrangements that I could find, but I’m hopeful.

Any other ideas?

Another Useful NPR Internal Pronunciation Email

Subject: Guidance on how to say Ebola

We’ve noticed some differences in the way we’ve been saying “Ebola.”

Here’s guidance, via the Library and Vikki Valentine:


*We checked with Mark before posting this. He sent along this reply:

It’s important to note that this is guidance, not a dictate from on high. We want to say things correctly, but we also realize that we have correspondents from around the world and that when they speak they may say some things differently. In this case, NPR’s Ofeibea Quist-Arcton is from Ghana. She says “eh-BOH-la.” It’s natural to her. We wouldn’t want to try to force her to say “ee-BOH-luh.”

I think I need to get a new backup hard drive. This is the second time it identified as “unformatted”.

What are y’all talking about? Strippers on Ellen?

Just a guy taking his shirt off. You’ve seen the post.

No not weird at all to me. I never understood all the screaming, crying and swooning for rock stars or celebs. I guess I’m an internal fangirl. I don’t feel the need to draw that type of attention to myself nor do I like being in the stop light.

Phew. Glad I’m not the only one.

I’m glad this show acknowledges its true OTP, Beckett/Murderboard.

Sadly there are some real drama queens out there. When you’re out somewhere with them you pray for a black hole to swallow you up.

I realize that woman was pretty over the top. And probably anyone on tv reacting to a stripper is exaggerating. Right? I mean, I’d rather watch HuntsBad go after this squirrel (which is what’s going on outside my window right now).
