A song has such a power to emote it’s scary. A song can lift you up and pull you down. It can give you hope and soothe a savage breast. And when you need to be strong, there’s girl power songs.
1. Gloria Gaynor – I Will Survive
Perhaps the mother of all girl power songs, this disco classic from 1978 is still as loved now as it was then, and should be on the playlist of any strong woman! The melody is just as catchy as the lyrics are important, with Gloria Gaynor discovering that she doesn’t need anyone but herself to live life to the full, deciding that she will not let a dreadful relationship define her and choosing to move on in glorious disco style.
