Melissa Lou Etheridge (born May 29, 1961) is an American rock singer-songwriter, guitarist, and activist. Her self-titled debut album was released in 1988 and become an underground hit. The album peaked at #22 on the Billboard 200, and its lead single, Bring Me Some Water, garnered Etheridge her first Grammy nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. In 1993, Etheridge won her first Grammy award for her single, Ain't It Heavy, from her 3rd album Never Enough. Later that year, she released what would become her breakthrough album, Yes I Am. The album featured the mainstream rock hits I'm the Only One (#8) and Come to My Window (#25), the latter which scored Etheridge her second Grammy award. Yes I Am peaked at #15 on the Billboard 200, and spent 138 weeks on the chart, earning a RIAA certification of 6x Platinum, her largest to date.
In October 2004, Etheridge was diagnosed with breast cancer, and underwent surgery and chemotherapy. At the 2005 Grammy Awards, she made a return to the stage and, although bald from chemotherapy, performed a tribute to Janis Joplin with the song "Piece of My Heart". Etheridge's performance was widely lauded, with India.Arie writing "I Am Not My Hair" about Etheridge. Later that year, Etheridge released her first compilation album, Greatest Hits: The Road Less Traveled. The album was a huge success, peaking at #14 on the Billboard 200, and going Gold immediately. Her latest release is 4th Street Feeling.
Etheridge is known for her mixture of "confessional lyrics, pop-based folk-rock, and raspy, smoky vocals." She has also been an iconic gay and lesbian activist since her public coming out in January 1993.

And now, she has her very own UKMIX survivor! I've assembled many of her best-known songs to contend for the survivor title!

Sorry but I don't do survivors that way, I feel it's too slow and the groupings can be too arbitrary. Besides, looks like the group will be pared down soon enough.

sad to hear/read that, but this is your game and you can do as you wish,
i just don't see the point in game with one voter
i'll (probably) vote in final rounds

The groups may be slower (though not really if you update daily and there isn't a lot of groups), but IMO it makes a more quality survivor as more people participate and discover new songs and artists.

I love it when I don't need to do groups because the artist/album has loads of fans here, but for "less known" artists it's good for the survivor and brings in more players :) my thoughts only, you are free to choose of course :D
