(Management is not responsible for tunes that stick in your head). Her songs tell her story, but though they are deeply personal their universality rings out. “Not a centerfold, but a woman you can hold” says her song “Just Like Me.” Her wry sense of humor comes through here and in her tongue-in-cheek “Pin-up Girls,” the daring “Hot Flash” and the lamenting “Human Condition.” She sings her heart out in “Falling Down,” the tale of a son whose life had “gotten ugly, it’s a tangle of sin” and in “Slow Exit” a song about her aging and diminishing mother, not the woman she remembers. She hasn’t forgotten the convictions that shaped her in the ‘60s on marches against the war and for civil rights. She cries out in “The People” to remind the world that “...
it’s not about the politics, the parties on the left or the right... it’s about the People.” She takes on the role of Earth Mother and laments the abuse heaped upon her by humans in “Earth Mother Blues” and an unusual, ethereal music-picture, “Earthspeak.” Bonnie Meadow might just be the answer to the old saying: “They ain’t writing them like they used to.” Website http://www.bonniemeadow.com Read more on Last.fm.
