Girl Power Playlist

Ok, so last week's plan of completely forgetting about everything to do with Southern Boy by Monday morning didn't exactly pan out. I'm still hurt, I'm still confused, and I'm still not sure how to move forward. So I'm doing the only thing I know how to do - packing my social calendar as much as possible, and listening to music that let's me take out aggression by emphatically singing along in the car. I call it (embarassingly enough) my "Girl Power" playlist. Not all are angry, but they all remind me of women with strength, which is what I need to reclaim for myself.

Since You Been Gone, Kelly Clarkson
Rehab, Amy Winehouse
Become You, Indigo Girls
Before He Cheats, Carrie Underwood
Stronger, Britney Spears
I (Who Have Nothing), Shirley Bassey
Independent Women, Destiny's Child
Piece of My Heart, Janis Joplin
Love You I Do, Jennifer Hudson, Dreamgirls Soundtrack
Irreplaceable, Beyonce
Free Man in Paris, Joni Mitchell
You Had Me, Joss Stone
U & UR Hand, Pink
Strong Enough, Sheryl Crow
Walk Away, Kelly Clarkson

(Please note the incredible restraint I showed by not adding You Oughta Know by Alanis Morrissette.)

So help me out, people. What should be added to the list???

I'd definitely add High Road Easy by Sass Jordan - real chick rock but different to Alanis.

Also, What Goes Around...Comes Around by Justin Timberlake might be fitting.

And maybe Me, Myself And I by Beyonce too.

Hope you're feeling better soon - the tunes will definitely help!

My anthem for singledom is "Here I Go Again on My Own" (not sure if that's the actual title but you know what i mean). It's not exactly girl power but it gets the job done.

Whoa - Here I Go Again is MY anthem of singledom. I like to play it while I walk my dog, thinking to myself, 'yeah, like a drifter I WAS born to walk alone.' I also listen to Smile by Lily Allen, Bad Reputation by Joan Jett, Marching Bands of Manhattan by Death Cab for Cutie, Violet by Hole, and The Execution of All Things by Rilo Kiley when I'm upset. The last one is my favorite girl power song because it's so lovely and scary at the same time.

Oh my god, I forgot "Song for the Dumped" (disregard title) by Ben Folds Five, just for the phrase "Fuck you too! Give me my money back, give me my money back, give me my money back, and dooooon't forget, to give me back my black tshirt!"
