March 8th is International Women's Day - last year I wrote about my fictional female role models, and the year before I went with an essay about super popular late Victorian / Edwardian author, L.T. Meade.
This year I'm sharing my favourite songs about being a woman. :)
#5. Just a Little Girl (2002) - Amy Studt.
'Cause I'm just a little girl, you see / but there's a hell of a lot more to me.
Don't ever underestimate what I can do / don't ever tell me how I'm meant to be.
I loved this song so much in my teens! It hit #14 in the UK charts in 2002 and I bought both the single and the album on the back of it.
#4. G.I.R.L. (2005) - Robots in Disguise.
You like to throw up words / speak to us as if we got germs.
And label us with junior terms / G-I-R-L - GIRL!
It's not a dirty word!
I love my electro-pop and I was hugely into RID back in the day. I like the punk vibe of this, and the video is super fun too.
#3. Video (2001) - India Arie.
Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don't.
Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won't.
Depend of how the wind blows I might even paint my toes.
It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul.
This is such a feel good song about being yourself and not being a slave to what other people say you should do / look like.
#2. Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves (1985) - Eurythmics ft. Aretha Franklin.
More awesome electro-pop.
#1. Girls Just Want To Have Fun (1983) - Cyndi Lauper.
It's a classic!
