Music For Women By Women: Songs Every Woman Should Own

Sure, there is tons of music out there that makes us feel good, bad, sad, mad, etc. Then there are songs that are tailor-made for women, songs that express what we feel when we can’t put it into our own words. Songs that help us walk a little taller, comfort us when love has kicked us in the ribs and help put life into perspective.

This playlist is so much more than just a playlist, it’s a collection of stories of love, empowerment, heartbreak and foolishness – subjects all women can relate to. This is a list of songs that every woman should have in her music collection because after all, we can’t be expected to share everything with men.
