Music for My Mighty Girls

A few weeks ago I wrote about finding a ton of new music for my girls. We’ve got this awesome playlist that keeps growing as we find new music. I tried to make a playlist in Spotify so I could share it, but I apparently am not technologically savvy enough to figure out why it doesn’t work properly. Waiting to hear back from them. Oh well. Until then, here is the stuff that we are rocking out to these days.

  • One Day (Charice)
  • Mean (Taylor Swift)
  • Stronger (Kelly Clarkson)
  • Sing (Glee Cast cover of My Chemical Romance)
  • The Princess that Saved Herself (Jonathan Coulton)
  • Rock What You Got (Superchick)
  • The Great Divide (from Secret of the Wings)
  • Tomboy in a Princess Dress (Suzi Shelton)
  • Brave (Sara Bareilles)
  • Wings (Little Mix)
  • Love You a Long Time (Pentatonix)
  • Neon Lights (Natasha Bedingfield)
  • Let it Grow (Ester Dean)
  • Live Your Dreams (Athena Cage)
  • Anthem (Superchick)

(UPDATED TO ADD MORE SONGS)

  • Firework (Katy Perry)
  • Whole Wide World (Mindy Gledhill)
  • We Are Who We Are (Little Mix)
  • Gold (Britt Nicole)
  • Part of Me (Katy Perry)
  • Perfect (P!nk)

Here are a few of the videos in case you haven’t heard the songs

This first one is “The Princess Who Saved Herself.” I first heard this on NPR’s Ask Me Another. The video below is art done by a group of 1st graders to illustrate the song. J hasn’t seen this yet….so cool!

This second one is “Wings” by Little Mix. It’s pretty awesome to hear your 2 year old singing from the backseat “Mama told me not to waste my life, she said spread your wings my little butterfly…”

Finally, this is “Anthem” by Superchick. They are actually a Christian rock group, but we think they are outrageously good. Today was actually the first day I heard this one all the way through and we played it loud! The lyrics are pretty amazing so I have included them after the video.

“Anthem”

Here’s to the ones who don’t give up[3x]

This is your anthem, get your hands up
We are fire inside, we are lipstick and cleats
We are not going home, we are playing for keeps
We are girls with skinned knees, we are concrete and grace
We are not what you think, you can’t keep us in our placeHere’s to the girls on their boards with bruises and scars
Here’s to the girls whose fingers bleed from playin guitar
Here’s to anyone who never quit when things got hard
You’ll never let them say you’ll never get that far

We are fire inside, we are an army asleep
We are a people awaking to follow their dreams
We don’t have time for your games
We have our own goals to score
There are trophies to win instead of being one of yours
