Ten years ago: Gossip - Standing in the Way of Control

Gossip's Standing in the Way of Control came out ten years ago today. This band made an instant positive impression on me. Singer Beth Ditto is an impressive performer who blew me away when I first saw a video of her performing the title track from this album. Her voice and delivery are so strong and melodic; she is a force that cannot be ignored.

That same song would go on to become an anthem and rallying cry for gay rights and marriage equality.

Check out my favourite tunes from this powerful band's third album.

"Standing in the Way of Control"

"Jealous Girls"

"Listen Up!"

"Your Mangled Heart"
