With the sun hopefully here to stay for a little while longer we’ve created our very own playlist to celebrate the lighter days and nights.
To listen to the gorgeous tunes we’ve come up with just click on the Spotify box below. If you haven’t got Spotify you can download it here.
For those of you who can’t wait we’ve also decided to give you a taste of who and what we’ve chosen.
Look good and feel gorgeous with RuPaul
It’s pretty damn obvious that we couldn’t create a playlist of fabulous divas without including Rupaul. Just look at our RuPaul recaps-it’s clear we are obsessed. We chose 10. It was pretty difficult to decide, but the great thing about Spotify is that we can just continue adding more! Here are five we just CAN’T stop listening to:
I Bring The Beat
Jealous Of My Boogie
We’re crazy in love with our girl Beyonce
Again, no playlist is complete without Queen B. We’ve been nursing our sadness that we didn’t get tickets to see her this spring with lots of YouTube videos and karaoke performances in the shower. We’ve merged Miss B and Destiny’s Child together, and we reckon these will have you working your inner goddess in moments.
Bills, Bills, Bills
Say My Name
Crazy In Love
It’s Britney, b****
If there’s anyone who knows the highs and lows of fame, it’s Miss Spears. We kind of admire her craziness, as well as her no-messin’ attitude on the US X Factor last season. Sure, there’s been bad hair, but seriously, we’ve all been there…not all of us have attacked the paps with an umbrella, but we want to. It’s easy to forget that she was once the BIGGEST artist in the world. We wanted that body.
I’m A Slave For You
I’m Not A Girl (Not Yet A Woman)
Me Against The Music
Lady Gaga reminds us that she likes it rough and she was born that way
Mother Monster: we owe you so much. Her outfits have, at times, left little to the imagination as well as boggled it. There’s no denying that she is an absolute goddess with an incredibly powerful and soulful voice, which can really be appreciated when you watch her live. In 2008/2009 she brought us into a new world of pop/rock/soul/dance (we’re still not entirely sure) with Just Dance, and quite rightly, she hasn’t looked back.
Born This Way
I Like It Rough
Beautiful, Dirty, Rich
We wanna dance with Whitney Houston
We chose just two songs for our playlist from this sorely missed songstress. We’re still desperately trying to hit that belty note in I Will Always Love You. “AND I-EEEEE-I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOUUUUUU.” – that was us singing by the way. If you’re pining for the thrill of hearing her famous numbers live we suggest taking a trip to see The Bodyguard on London’s Strand.
I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)
How Will I Know
A fool in love with Tina Turner
An icon. A darling who can’t, and won’t, be matched. #Drag writer Antonia has a Tina Turner wig which,we must say, looks amaze. Unfortunately, no one can look, or move, just like TT, but that doesn’t stop us trying.
What’s Love Got To Do With It
I Can’t Stop Loving You
A Fool In Love
We desperately want to be loved by Marilyn Monroe
We don’t think the world will ever get over Marilyn. US TV sensation Smash made us fall in love with her all over again, and after listening to her singing we’re longing for expensive jewels. It was the hair, the voice, the curves, the smile, and the mystery. Take a gander at My Week With Marilyn if these songs leave you craving more. It’s one of our favourites.
Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend
I Wanna Be Loved By You
I’m Through With Love
She Acts Like A Woman Should
We’re hung up on Madonna
We can’t believe it’s taken us this long to get to Madge. We’re still undecided on whether she should continue to make music, but there’s no denying that her original songs transformed a generation (or two). We also can’t quite get the Vogue arm movements, nor can we find a super-pointy bra. It’s probably for the best. No one does it like Madonna.
Like A Virgin
Into The Groove
Justify My Love
…and some songs/women that we just can’t live without:
Diana Ross – I Will Survive
Cher – It’s In His Kiss
Doris Day – Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps
Liza Minnelli – Cabaret
Gloria Gaynor – I Will Survive
Christina Aguilera – Ain’t No Other Man
Donna Summer – Hot Stuff
Chaka Khan – Ain’t Nobody
Rosemary Clooney – Sway
ABBA – Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
