Welcome to Tunes For Tuesday – It’s Women in Music for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October!

Music, Tunes For Tuesday

For National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I’m highlighting some of the great women in music.  While I’m well aware that men also can be diagnosed with breast cancer (according the American Cancer Society the risk of breast cancer for men is 1 in 1,000 vs 1 in 8 for women), I figured that giving the spotlight to women for the month wasn’t a bad idea.


Today’s featured artist is the truly wonderful Annie Lennox.  I believe that I might have worn out my “Diva” disc because I played it so often.  Annie has a great voice and I’m looking forward to her new album which will be released in all formats on October 21st (vinyl was released on 9/30).  Today’s Tune is “Walking On Broken Glass” not only because it features Annie’s great voice but because it’s a great song and video.  I hope you enjoy today’s feature!
