Surely I can't be the only one!
(am I going to lose friends over this?)
In every dyke/leftwing/feminist circles for the last 7 or 8 years it seems that everyone adores her..
I go to a party and someone puts a CD of hers on, there goes the mood..
On a regular basis on my lj friends pages I am subjected to her 'meaningful' lyrics cut&pasted. I've had cute girls stop talking to me in pubs cause I didn't share their enthusiasm.
Even my lovely wife used to be an Ani fan, I bought her a ticket to her concert back in '98. Thankfully she got over it and so I no longer have to hear it in my own house.
She is not the messiah, she is a half-rate folk singer with an annoying voice.
(And I'm saying this as a fan of folk music)
