“Man! I Feel Like A Woman” by Shania Twain

This is definitely one of the only country songs that will ever make it onto a Pride playlist, but for Shania Twain, you can make an exception.

Shania is so much more than a country star. She popularized the country-pop genre before Taylor Swift had even picked up a guitar (probably), and she did it perfectly. That’s why so many of her songs were able to break out of the country scene and become huge international hits. She has plenty of songs that would be perfect for a Pride playlist, but there’s obviously one that will always get more attention: “Man! I Feel Like A Woman”.

Whether you identify as male, female, or nonbinary, this song will probably stir up some emotions inside you as soon as you hear that opening note and the iconic line, “Let’s go girls.” It’s a fun track about letting loose and having a good time with your girls (whether they’re actually female or not), and not worrying about men getting in your way.

Any song that boasts lyrics about female empowerment that also happens to be totally danceable is a surefire way to get a crowd going at a pride event. You don’t need to be a woman for the lyrics to apply to you either. If you’re having a good time and not letting anyone get in your way, this song is for you. It blurs the lines of gender and for that reason, it found its way onto our list.

Now go and live your country fantasy!
