Shiina Ringo is the most versatile female artist of all time

Let's consider... she plays to at least some proficiency maybe a dozen instruments, composes in a whole bunch of genres and pulls them off with authenticity, produces, arranges, writes fascinating lyrics, composes and produces for others, has scored for film, TV and theatre, is a prolific bandleader (often of bands otherwise almost entirely comprised of men, it's interesting to note, and is frequently the only or one of very few woman in situations that tend to be sausage fests, like when the government gave her that arts award recognising her contribution, but I think I've digressed a little). She's a 'proper' musician while also having at one time been a huge pop star and icon with songs near the top of the charts and major visibility.

I feel like there's never been a female artist who all the above could be said about. What say you? Are there even any other Ringo fans here, I wonder. smile

I think it must be night time in the US or something. How long is a night time in America, 20-something hours? smile

In Alaska, it's 2 or 3 months long.

A few years ago, Sheena did a song with Towa Tei who used to be in Deee-Lite

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Yes. One of only a handful of her songs that I don't really like (the duet with Atsushi Sakurai and the studio version of The Onion Song being a couple of others). The Engrish doesn't help. The version on the most recent MV collection with live strings is better though.
