UK Women Listen To More Music Than UK Men

Emap, a large UK company which among many other things, publishes the music magazines Kerrang!, Q, and, Mojo has announced that according to its research, more women now spend more time listening to music than men do. Oh, and more women than men buy Kerrang! Plus, almost half those under 30 who buy Q are female. Yes, they are reaching with that last one.

With astoundingly good timing, Emap Entertainment had announced on May 4th the launch of a new weekly women's magazine on May 17th.

Perhaps the new magazine, "FIRST", will indeed "reach women at a whole new life-stage who seek an intelligent read that gives them a broader perspective on the world," as Emap Entertainment Managing Director Louise Matthews claims, but I still don't mind missing out on this one.

In an attempt to appeal to young UK women, who plainly dig music more than anyone else, I shall try to post more songs about clothes, makeup, cool cars, love, and fashion (as well as music) magazines.

Yo La Tengo - Autumn Sweater (from I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One)

David Bowie - She'll Drive The Big Car (from Reality)

XTC - Love On A Farmboy's Wages (from Mummer, etc.)

Elvis Costello & The Attractions - This Year's Girl (from This Year's Model)

Pete Shelley - Homosapien (from Just Can't Get Enough: New Wave Hits Of The 80s)
