Friday Dance Party! SISTERHOOD: 9 Songs to Celebrate Your Sister Squad

Let's hear it for the girls this week!  In today's Friday Let-Off-Steam Dance Party we're bringing you a collection of songs that'll make you want to celebrate your sisters.  These are the anthems that can bring us together and unite us as one Strong Women Squad.

So whether you're dancing about on your own, you've cracked open the vino and gathered your favourite femmes, or you're just having a cheeky listen at work, let's run the world together.

Let's start with Little Mix, because these girls are ACE at socially conscious, feel-good, pumping tracks.  We salute you, ladies.

Salute - Little Mix

 

Ladies all across the world
Listen up, we're looking for recruits
If you're with me, let me see your hands
Stand up and salute
Get your killer heels, sneakers, pumps or lace up your boots
Representing all the women.

 

That's my girls!  What a song.  Talking of which, let's move onto some more feisty femmes from the land of peanut butter M&Ms, here's Fifth Harmony...

That's My Girl - Fifth Harmony

 

You've been down before
You've been hurt before
You got up before
You'll be good to go, good to go

 

GOD, women are such queens, the lot of you!  Throw your goddamn hands up at me, ladies!

Independent Women, Pt. I - Destiny's Child

 

All the women, who are independent
Throw your hands up at me
All the honeys, who making money
Throw your hands up at me

 

I couldn't not put that last one in there.  Good old 2001.  Rewinding it back even further, sistassssssssssss! 

Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves - Aretha Franklin & Eurythmics

 

Now this is a song to celebrate
The conscious liberation of the female state!
Mothers - daughters and their daughters too.
Woman to woman
We're singin' with you.

 

YES, WE ARE DOING IT FOR OURSELVES, we can do anything.  Well we've got this buzz going let's hop back to the 90s and Spice Up our Muthaflippin' Lives!

Spice Up Your Life - Spice Girls

 

Colours of the world
Spice up your life
Every boy and every girl
Spice up your life
People of the world
Spice up your life

 

And now onto one of my favourite songs in the whole wide world, a world that WE run, it's Queen Bey...

Run The World - Beyoncé

 

Who are we? What we run? We run the world
Who run the world? GIRLS

 

One more happy, feminist dance classic before we start cooling things down...

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper

 

I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they wanna have fun

 

Ahh that WAS fun.  Now this next track is just gorgeous, and has a really great message. Hailee Steinfeld is good at that.  Because when someone says 'you're not like most girls', the perfect response is 'WHAT'S WRONG WITH MOST GIRLS, I LOVE MOST GIRLS'.

Most Girls - Hailee Steinfeld

 

Most girls are smart and strong and beautiful
Most girls, work hard, go far, we are unstoppable
Most girls, our fight to make every day
No two are the same
I wanna be like, I wanna be like, most girls

 

And finally it's time to lay back and listen to the sweet sounds of Ms Keys, who reminds us what superwomen we all are. Yes I will, Yes I can.

Superwoman - Alicia Keys

 

All my sisters
Coming together
Say yes I will
Yes I can

 

Thanks for joining the Friday 'Let Off Steam' dance party!  Come back next week for another musical celebration, and a brand new theme.
