Girls on Top

Let me start by saying there are a lot of artists left out of this list. It was edited down to a mix tape sized portion from a very long list. Girl fans, don’t fret, the “Cherry Chapstick” mix is soon to follow and will contain much more girl power. Yes, I’m aware I’m missing Madonna, Pat Benetar, Cyndi Lauper, and the gang, but I try to give you the one’s you wouldn’t come up with on your own, so give this one a try.

Here’s how it is: I LOVE being a girl. I’m sexy, smart, and unstoppable. I can control a man’s thoughts with a blink of an eye or a wave of my hand. I can go out at night and not spend a dime. My body is a temple, and it loves to be worshiped… for hours. There are days when chocolate can solve all my problems. I don’t have to hide my true feelings about things. I could go on all day, but that’s not what we’re here for. We came for the music, and this mix is all about girls.

Si Es Perfecto – the girls on top mix

✓    Only Girl (In The World)- Rihanna

Every girl knows what Rihanna is talking about in this song and it’s hella fun to sing along to. Men, for those few hours you get with me, you better make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world. If you understand that (and understand when to turn it off), you’ve got women all figured out.
✓    Get Your Money Up- Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole, and Trina

Talk about Divas. These ladies know how to make you move. I absolutely love this song. Now, let me see your booty drop.
✓    Paper Planes- MIA

Bad girls only wanna [insert gunshots] and take ya money. Sick song. Also, remember when I asked you if that song sounded familiar in the last mix? Does it sound familiar now?

✓    Battlefield- Jordin Sparks

This girl can sing her little heart out! And we love her for it. Why we gotta fall for it now?!

✓    Baby You Got Me- The Roots

I was torn between this song and honey.. and for some reason I always choose this one. Erykah Badu has got everything that is right in the world (and not just in her trunk.)

✓    Hips Don’t Lie- Shakira

That they don’t, Shakira! And what spectacular hips they are! I could watch Shakira dance for hours. In fact, I have! It doesn’t get old, trust me.

✓    If I Ruled The World- Lauryn Hill (with Nas)

Lauryn Hill would definitely get my vote for world ruler if she ran. Well, ok.. maybe not.. but what an amazing voice. Great song.

✓    Twin Cinema- The New Pornographers

This is one of my favorite bands, and Kathryn Calder is an incredibly sexy, and equally talented woman. Plus I got to set up their sound a couple times 🙂 If you don’t think she belongs on this list, fuck your shit.

✓    Jumpers- Sleater-Kinney

I’m aware this is a weird choice, and I strongly considered removing it to make room for Beyonce, but then I remembered the next mix I was making and decided to save her for later. Anyway, about Sleater Kinney.. weird ass band! But the girl power in me loves the hell out of them. What really gets me on this song, though, is the incredibly steamy sex scene to it in the L word. Go on, youtube it, the blog will still be here when you get back.

✓    Come On Eileen- Save Ferris

Ah, yes… the punk ska sensation of Save Ferris! If you can keep from dancing to this, you’re stronger willed than I.

✓    Monster- Lady GaGa

That’s right! I resisted Madonna and Beyonce, but gave in to Lady GaGa. What can I say? She’s the man! Every girl has an inner GaGa.

✓    Edge Of Seventeen- Fleetwood Mac

And we’ll end with Stevie because she’s so damned dope! Oooh baby oooh said ooooooh!
