Finally, the Girl Power Pop Playlist


A few weeks ago I posted about how I was struggling to find music on the radio that Lucy and I would agree on. Mostly this is due to her love of pop music and my hatred of all the skanky lyrics on the radio these days (and get off my lawn!). As I said earlier, most pop music doesn’t sound that bad, until you hear a six-year-old singing the words. Then you’ll probably want to buy some permanent earmuffs.

After asking some awesome people over on the Crazybananas Facebook page for advice, I put together this Lucy approved playlist of current and past pop/rock hits, all sung by girls (a must for Miss Lu) that won’t leave you feeling icky when you hear a first grader singing along. There are some fun oldies on here from The Go-Go’s, ABBA, Miss Jackson and No Doubt, along with some current pop hits that were Lulu’s special request. Let’s party!

    Tangentially related: I was at Denmark House during the Olympics and they had a performance by a kids’ dance troupe from Copenhagen. About 60% of the music was way inappropriate for these 10-and-unders anyway… and then they started lip synching. The image of a rosy-cheeked, blond-haired, blue-eyed, Heidi-milkmaid-esque Danish kid grabbing her crotch and rapping about ‘mother effers’ whilst pretending to shoot a gun is pretty much burned on my retinas for all time.

    Probably not quite pop enough, but ‘This is our Emergency’ by Pretty Girls Make Graves is some upbeat feminist goodness!
