Wanda Jackson "Hard Headed Woman" on Town Hall Party 1958

Wanda Jackson is widely regarded as the first female rock and roll singer. She dated Elvis and still tours at age 70. Wanda’s biggest hit was “Let’s Have a Party” (1960), but my favs are “Funnel of Love” “Fujiyama Mama” and this stomper, “Hard Headed Woman”, which never hit for some reason.

Not enough women perform in high heels and flapper dresses anymore. Wanda is on the short list of outstanding female rock and roll performers. The fact that she is not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame says all there needs to be said about that humbuggery.

“Well a hard headed woman a soft hearted man
Been the cause of trouble ever since the world began
Oh yeah ever since the world began ah oh oh oh oh
A hard headed woman is a thorn in the side of man”
