If you ask me, one of the best ways to work through your feelings is to play some great music really loud. That's exactly what I've been doing lately, looking to music of the recent past to vent some of my personal frustrations. While doing so, I decided that there are some '00s songs that should be popular again today, especially considering we live in fraught political times. These are songs that provide some much needed pep, and that are all, in their own way, some of the most uplifting pop songs of the decade.
To be fair, that's because a lot of them are actually feminist songs, too, making them perfect anthems for days when you want to celebrate the value and power of all women. Other ones, however, provide motivational sentiments or the kind of sweet reminders about life that we all crave after an especially tough day. And then many of them are included just because I'm a strong believer in the therapeutic qualities of having a good dance, which is something that they definitely inspire you to do.
So, yeah, let's make these songs popular again, eh? Because feeling good about life should be popular again, too.
