I express love through mix CDs. I think it’s a really thoughtful (and easy) way to show you care. I’ve made ’90s mixes for friends, and miiiighhhtt have made a romance mix for one or two boys I’ve had crushes on in the past. In fact, I’m the designated driver in my group of friends, and I demand (okay, strong word) a CD from anyone who enters my car. And I won’t lie to you: every time I receive a CD, I fully psychoanalyze each song on the track… only to conclude that the giver is desperately in love with me. I know you do that, too.
One of the best mixes I’ve received was entitled “Girl Power Anthems”. Great for road trips, girls’ nights, dance parties, birthday gifts and break ups. Here are some of my favorite sisterhood songs that, to me, define and seek to understand womanhood.
Billy Joel – ‘She’s Always A Woman’
India.Arie – ‘Video’
Shania Twain – ‘Man! I Feel Like A Woman’
Beyoncé – ‘Why Don’t You Love Me’
Meredith Brooks – ‘Bitch’
P!nk – ‘Perfect’
Katy Perry – ‘Part of Me’
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no”
Lily Allen – ‘Hard Out Here’
Christina Aguilera’s – ‘Fighter’
Destiny’s Child – ‘Survivor’
