Top 5 Songs...

Girl Power Anthems
Here are my top 5 songs that embody some aspect of Girl Power. Some are straightforward others not so much.

5. Salt N Peppa - I Am The Body Beautiful
Sometimes you just have to stop and realize that your beauty is your power and it comes not from external validation but from yourself.  Dig deep, sister because there is a queen in there somewhere.

4. Eurythmics & Aretha Franklin - Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves
Two of the most powerful women in all of musicdom came together for this anthem.  You don't need anyone to do it for you.  Get out there and prove that you can do it on your own and you do not need a man to succeed.

3. Whitney Houston - I'm Every Woman
It doesn't matter who you are or what you do, there is part of you in each and every woman on this planet and they are part of you.  Own it!

2. Britney Spears - Stronger
You may have walked out on me but that's fine.  I can do it on my own because it only takes me to make it. I am Stonger than yesterday.  One day at a time.

1. M.I.A - Bad Girls
Live Fast, Die Young... Bad Girls do it well.  If you're living with regrets you aren't living.  It's your life and do with it as you need to.

Honorable Mention

Kreayshawn - Gucci Gucci 
Basic bitches wear that shit so I don't even bother.  I don't need name brand or bandwagons to feel strong.

Songs too unfortunately obvious for this list 

Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Spice Girls - Wannabe
