Recommendation: Man-Size by PJ Harvey

A reader recommends…

MAN-SIZE by Pj Harvey
a music video

Ever heard of PJ harvey? NO? You’re gonna wonder how you did without her…

MAN-SIZE is this great PJ harvey song i discovered recently. I love it, and hope you will too. The music alone video is stunning… as performance art it is uniquely gorgeous. Apparently, PJ harvey has denied that its a song about sex-change, although all song’s are open to interpretation. And whatever it’s about: If you’ve ever wanted to get up out of your skin – then PJ knows you feel.

She brings out the macho in me.
And I love it.

(I also heard that PJ wrote this at a point in her career when she felt like proclaiming to the world that she was NOT going to be just another run of the mill female (and, according to some, therefore feminine) singer song writer. She was going to be something much bigger.)
