Tank Top Tuesday

My Weekend Crush last Friday had the added benefit of reminding me that I really don’t post about music enough. Granted, I’m no music blogger. While I love every buttery morsel of pop culture, I’ve always have been more of a film/TV connoisseur than a music aficionado. In fact, the breadth of my musical abilities involved reaching over and turning on the radio. Over the years, for whatever reason, my consumption of music has gone from obsessive to casual. Who knows why: lack of free time, lack of attention span, lack of auditory acuity. But that doesn’t mean my enjoyment of music has decreased, nor has my admiration for the musicians. And somehow the music sounds even better when they’re wearing tank tops. Funny how that works.

Alicia KeysNothing gay about this picture, nothing at all.

Brandi CarlileSee above.

Rachael Cantu & Missy HigginsThere are actually two things gay about this picture.

Missy & her armsSee above, again.

Tegan and SaraDid you know it’s really fucking hard to find a picture of both Tegan and Sara in tank tops? Did you know that the best I could do was these muscle shirty things? Did you know I love them, regardless? Well, now you do.

M.I.A.This is really more suspenders than a tank top. Close enough.

Feist1, 2, 3, 4 tell me that Feist should wear tank tops more.

Debbie HarryCall me, indeed.

Joan JettJoan Jett gets more chicks than you. This is just a fact.


See, told you.

Good lord, Snarker. Are you TRYING to kill me before breakfast? I've said it before and I'll say it again: Joan Jett turned me gay for girls. Good to see she hasn't lost her touch.

Katja said...

That post included all my favourite musicians, thanks :) so many hot ladies... and Missy's arms really took my breath away.

Awesome, Ms Snarker! As a Tegan and Sara fan, I know they hardly ever wear sleeveless/tank tops (Sara, especially), but here's a link to an old photoshoot when they were much younger and forced into photoshoots wearing girly clothes and promoting makeup.

Thank you for the ladies, Ms. Snarker! Thank you for Tegan and Sara and totally, totally thank you for the clip of Joan Jett! I can't hear the music 'cause I'm deaf (but I'm used to it so don't worry), but that's the hottest little clip I saw in ages!
Thank you!

Doro

P.S.: She deserves any and each of the chicks... lucky girl...

Thank you, Ms Snarker, for this gift for a Tuesday.


May I graciously request some Ani DiFranco next time?

Brandi...holy mother of all that is sexy. Missy...god help me she's hot..and Joan, the queen. (but I love her way better in her black hair, I have to admit the blonde does absolutely nothing for me)

Best. Tank. Top. Tuesday. Ever. Especially because of Brandi. She is my favorite. Thx DS!

The Pants said...

OMG, Brandi...kills me with all the 'guh'ness of her. And T&S are always fabulous. AND Missy? You kill me, Snarker. Kill me!

Reverend Jane Ignatowski said...

I'm pretty sure it was Joan Jett's original Crimson & Clover video that was responsible for my youthful lesbian awakenings. My jr high lit class had conveniently tabled the notion of symbolism around then so that whole thing where she retained the feminine pronouns of the lyrics and tore that flower up with her teeth just about knocked me out.

OMG. That first pic of Joan on the couch with STILETTOS!

*thud*

Hah. There is a Tegan (or is it Sara...) video out there somewhere where she refers to prefering long sleeves. Something about arms being like a bum and wanting to keep them covered...

Rose said...

Oh, Ms. Snarker,

You do have love for the T&S! Wonderful post... makes me wish every day was Tank-Top Tuesday...

: )

Perugga said...

I missed Hannah Blilie of Gossip... She looks super-hot in a tanktop (or anything else actually). But I guess she can still be part of the next Gender Fuck Thursday. Please?

elliB said...

Sara is the one who equated her arms with her bum- she hates to show them.

Also, wouldn't there be *one* gay thing about the Brandi Carlile picture? That one thing being Brandi...? (She's out... well, she came out in one hard to find interview years ago...)

Summer Waldron said...

I love, love, LOVE tank top Tuesday...love it... :-)

Brenda said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you for tank top tuesdays.

lorinb79 said...

Best. Tuesday. ever. Brandi and Missy and more Missy. (Because who doesn't want more Missy?) I felt like it was my birthday. Thank you!

If you do want more Missy...Spot the gay in Bran Nue Dae, with special attention to :22-23 Seriously.

Really enjoyed that :)
My suggestion for another edition: Melissa Ferrick. Especially in mix with Brandi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umdniKeouqY) or Jill Sobule (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hs11BwErZJQ; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_y426n-s57Q)

I'm pretty sure Joan Jett gets more women than Shane and Papi combined.
