    Because I want this thread to be honored in Siouxsie's name, I am asking PLEASE do not challenge my arguments by posting any other artist content to this thread. I know it is tempting because taste is subjective, however if you cannot avoid temptation, simply start a thread to honor your favorite artist. Thank you for your respect.

    When I think of all the great ART in the world of music since 1978, nobody has collectively been more creative poetically, musically, and visually in packaged combination as Siouxsie Sioux originally of Siouxsie and The Banshees (later joining her Guitarist husband in a band called The Creatures).

    This thread is in tribute to France's pride and joy who were originally born in London and discovered in Manchester, England with bands such as The Cult, Joy Division, Sex Pistols, and The Smiths. Siouxsie Sioux had worked with Artists such as Robert Smith who later formed a band called The Cure.

    Because each album is unique, I am going to try to make this thread introduce the music a bit from each time period little by little (some of you are already guessing the other reason why). Plus there are just too many songs to post out of the 500 or so online! (yes, you guessed it)

    There is no possible way to introduce the best songs of Siouxsie Sioux because each release contains a whole different philosophy of sound; some of her music being posted is raw as I will be posting more in the future that sound more engineered (as we know Americans like that).

    Why do I personally love Siouxsie Sioux? I have been a Songwriter since the age of eight. I always searched for artists that push the limits of creativity and controversial thought. I respect musical artists that value poetry as much as wavelengths. I currently have my own Alternative Rock band called Copernicus Saloon and I am very inspired by childhood bands such as Siouxsie and The Banshees (particularly the obscure bands).

    Most of you know from the size of her discography, she has done more songs with more sound versatility than probably any artist including Beetoven and The Beatles. Unlike most accomplished artists, Siouxsie Sioux's work has always included unique theme's in sound quality that are potent in originality and subject matter.

    They say in France, Siouxsie is seen as the Madonna of their country. Siouxsie's unusual selection of instruments and electronic sound choices far exceeds that which Madonna has even had the opportunity to tap into. Is it for money? I hardly think so. She has tons of it and has no need to flash it like an American.

    I will be checking back periodically to add to this portfolio of what I find a journey through her musical wisdom. Feel free to add your favorite Siouxsie Sioux songs as there are probably over 500 to choose from just on the internet and I do mean that literally.

    From Dance/Club music and Meditation to Punk Gothic and Alternative Rock... I am certain EVERYONE can find a song they absolutely cannot stop replaying. Happy hunting... icon_wink.gif

    Siouxsie Sioux ain't French.

    She's as British as the Queen.

    Yes, I know this. She was discovered in Manchester as I have described. She moved to France once she got rich and most of her recognition comes from France now. As I mentioned, she is France's pride and joy. The English acknowledge nobody because of the self-centered communists.

    Whu?

    England's Q Magazine just gave her an award last year for Outstanding Contribution To Music.

    The French can't claim Siouxsie any more than they can claim Tina Turner (who also moved to France).

    You seem to be ignoring the fact she herself has more pride in France than she does in England. Either way, you make it sound like England can still "claim" her though she has moved her career to France.

    I don't understand why her comeback album and career was pretty much ignored by the music world. That is probably why she moved it to France.

    @Sustenance: You seem to be ignoring actual facts.

    For starters, Siouxsie and the Banshees weren't discovered in Manchester. She's a Londoner through and through. As were the Sex Pistols. Her entire style defines the London post-punk scene, and early in her career, she was a regular at the Batcave in Soho.

    I honestly don't give two fucks where she lives or what country she has pride in. She's still British.

    You seem to be ignoring the fact that I have NOT ONCE denied that she is British. All I have written is that she is France's pride and joy. Why do you argue over such subliminal statements which I have not even made in my thread intro or the Title? Does this REALLY bother you? Little old me? Cummon. It's not that big a deal.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Incorrect facts do bother me, yes.

    If you want to write a tribute to someone, you should accurately portray them.

    I cite the guy above you who now thinks Siouxsie and the Banshees are French as Example A why you should be accurate in your post title.
