LHJ Playlist: Ladies Rock!

October 5, 2009 at 3:06 pm , by

ladymix2There are a surprising number of great songs out there that are dedicated to us ladies, so we made a playlist of our favorites. It’s an ecclectic but fun mix, with tunes like the Beatles’ Lady Madonna, Beyoncé‘s Single Ladies, and Frank Sinatra’s Luck Be a Lady. (Plus 14 more songs!) Who knew? Check out our Lady mix on iTunes.

You can buy and download your faves (or the whole mix, if you’re really feelin’ it) or just listen to get a taste. Do you have any other favorite “lady” songs?
