Man haters

I was listening to Frankee's **** You Right Back (good thing I don't have any credibility to lose, huh) and decided to make a cd for a friend of mine, who is divorcing, full of anti men songs. I actually want to make her laugh and of course I need some help.


Any ideas? You will be helping make a very sad lady very amused, if only briefly.

umm... anything Alanis Morrisette! lol

Sinead O'Connor's "No Man's Woman" is a good one... though it's more woman-positive than man-hating

Well its not an anti men song as such but

"I Am Woman" by Helen Reddy
"The Winner Takes It All" by ABBA is a good defeatist depressing song about divorce

'Similar Features' by Melissa Etheridge

What about "Im a Creep" or "Im an Arsehole" ?

i promise i don't hate men

Janet Jackson seems to have one on each of her albums:

What Have You Done For Me Lately?
Black Cat
This Time
What About (my personal favorite)
Son of a Gun


Others that are not necessarily man-hating but might be appropriate:

Concrete Blonde - Jesus Please Forgive Me (For the Things I'm About to Say)
Paula Cole - Throwing Stones
Bjork - 5 Years
Bjork - Immature
Fiona Apple - Get Gone
Dido - Hunter
Dido - Don't Think of Me
Natalie Merchant - 7 Years
Kym Mazelle - Young Hearts Run Free

By the way, I don't know if any of my suggestions would make her laugh, but they might help her get some anger out, which is also a good thing. Please give your friend a hug for me, too.

Sinead also has another good one - This Is The Last Day Of Our Aquaintance (or something similar to this)

Cold Hearted Snake - the one, the only, Paula Abdul

the best 'I hate men song' would have to be Ani DiFranco's 'Untouchable Face'

so f**k you
and your untouchable face
and f**k you
for existing in the first place
and who am i
that i should be vying for your touch
and who am i
i bet you can't even tell me that much

how can you go past lyrics like that?

maybe Coin Operated Boy by the Dresden Dolls.

Regardless, a great band.

and there might be somethin good on the new Pj Harvey album.
