BitchTapes: Eight Songs About Periods
This mixtape started as a joke, of course. I read an interview this week with Seattle band Tacocat about their song Crimson Wave and thought it would be funny to make a whole mixtape of songs about periods.
It turns out Tacocat's in good company: there are a surprising number of upbeat songs featuring women rapping and singing about menstruation! I found seven other songs about periods—plus a bonus track of Maragaret Cho rapping—and am happy to present 28 minutes of vag-tastic music.
28 Days – U.S. Girls
Crimson Wave – Tacocat
Shark Week – Hand Job Academy
On the Rag – Pulsallama
Heavy Flow – Toast
My Red Self – Heavens to Betsy
Happy and Bleeding – PJ Harvey
Period Piece - Lena D
My Puss – Margaret Cho
