Morning Song – Wild Women Don’t Have The Blues

September 28, 2016

Ida Cox’s “Wild Women Don’t Have The Blues” was a hit in 1924, and a foundational song for second-wave feminism after she re-recorded it in 1961 near the end of her long and varied career as “The Uncrowned Queen Of The Blues”.

What’s the best way to think about this (scratchy, tinny-sounding) old vaudeville song in 2016? How about this—no “Wild Women Don’t Have The Blues”, no Lemonade.

You never get nothing by being an angel child;
You better change your ways and get real wild;
I wanna tell you something, I wouldn’t tell you a lie;
Wild women are the only kind that really get by;
‘Cause wild women don’t worry, wild women don’t have their blues.
