I wonder if some of these songs are a reaction to the beginnings of the women’s liberation movement? At the same time I wonder how much of the lyrics were driven by the industry itself rather than artistic expression?

Some good songa here but you've stumped me on this category. What makes them whiny (or whinging as the Brits would say): singing syle, lyrics, both, neither?

Do these fit into the whiny category & if so, why?


I think he is using "whining" like "producing or emitting a prolonged, high-pitched sound."
Doesn't apply to, e.g., "Hungry" "Mercy Mercy Mercy" ... etc.
Moreover, not every falsetto is "whining" ...
