Friday, the weekend is finally upon us and you know what that means….. time for Free Basin’ Friday! This week we’re giving away a LP of the recently back in print Betty Davis – Betty Davis.

BETTY

Betty Davis was an innovator way ahead of her time. Her style of raw and revelatory punk-funk defied any notions that women couldn’t be visionaries in the worlds of rock and pop.  She was provocative and flamboyant, often flaunting her female sexuality. She greatly influenced many artist such as Outkast, Prince, Erykah Badu, Rick James, The Roots and Red Hot Chili Peppers. So for this week’s challenge, we would like you to come up with five fictitious song titles that best represents Betty Davis. The most creative answers win. The winner will be chosen next Friday via email.
