In partnership with the new fiction publishing platform Liberty Island, PJ Lifestyle is going to begin promoting and co-hosting a series of debates and discussions about popular culture. The goal is to figure out what works and what doesn’t so that in the future we can promote and create better fiction and culture of our own. These are public brainstorming sessions for writers and culture advocates interested in developing a more vibrant popular culture. You’re invited to submit your answers to any of these questions — or a related one of your own! — that interests you:

A) in the comments

B) Via email to PJ Lifestyle editor Dave Swindle.

C) at your blog, then let us know in the comments or via email. 

The most interesting answers may be linked, crossposted, or published at PJ Lifestyle. See this week’s previous questions, focusing on music: Tuesday’s “Who Are the Greatest Country Music Artists Everyone Should Have In Their Collection?“ and Monday’s Are Black Sabbath and the Rolling Stones Better Than the Beatles?

 Also check out the previous weeks’ writing prompts: 5 Geek Questions To Provoke Debates About the Future of Sci-Fi and Fantasy5 Controversial Questions To Inspire Spirited Debates About Music.

Robert Spencer: 5 Jazz Women We Love

This week we’re talking about music genres. What debate questions do you want to see featured next?

PJ Lifestyle Pop Culture Debates Features a new prompt each weekday to weigh the good, the bad, the overrated, the unbelievable, and the amazing throughout the worlds of books, film, and TV. We can't figure out how to build a greater pop culture until we dissect the mess we already have. Want to contribute your perspective to the debate?

Many of my favorites have already been mentioned, so I'll put in a good word for Eydie Gorme. Her rendition of If He Walked Into My Life Today is a knockout. Also, Judy Garland.

Eva Cassidy. Look her up on YouTube and listen to her version of "Over the Rainbow" and "Fields of Gold". Then view the Eva Cassidy Story. Her story and her musical styling will break your heart.

Please God, no votes for Billie Holiday!

She may be considered "important'. She's just not "pleasant".

Probably none of these would qualify as the greatest of all time, more like strong personal favorites. Ditto, Marian Anderson.....and I am surely dating myself with these ladies! ;)

I like Mama Cass. But you're getting into territory with that song that is well travelled by far better singers. Listen to Bing Crosby sing it. Okay, no fair, Bing is a male singer. Listen to Ella.
