It’s the ultimate track about getting a little raucous in the club.

The ultimate friendship anthem – when the sun shines, we shine together.

Don’t Cha – Pussycat Dolls

Soon you can sing “don’t cha wish your wife was hot like me?”

We miss Girls Aloud SO much. This track was our secondary school favourite to listen to at sleepovers.

You’re right Pixie, it is all about tonight!

Milkshake – Kelis

Once we’ve got a few drinks down us just try and stop us from belting this out!

Murder on the Dancefloor – Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Way before her star turn on Strictly Come Dancing this is what we knew her for, and over a decade later, this track is still an absolute banger.

Spice up your Life – Spice Girls

No girls night out playlist is complete with a Spice Girls track, and this is one of our faves.

Man! I Feel Like a Woman – Shania Twain

“The best thing about being a woman
Is the prerogative to have a little fun”

Girls just want to have fun!

Glamorous – Fergie

We might not quite have Fergie’s lifestyle, but this song makes us feel like we do, and that’s all that matters, right?

Hips don’t Lie – Shakira

Crank this up and pretend you look just like Shakira while you wiggle your hips.

Untouched – The Veronicas

They may have been one hit wonders, but this Veronicas track is still on all of our playlists.

Can’t Hold us Down – Christina Aguilera

Nothing says girl power like an Xtina track with a verse by Lil Kim.

Up – The Saturdays

There are too many Saturdays hits to remember, but Up is the original and still the best.

Power – Little Mix & Stormzy

We LOVE the Little Mix girls, and this song is modern day girl power track; we might even try rapping along to Stormzy’s bit, if we’ve drunk enough prosecco.

That’s My Girl – Fifth Harmony

What a tune! Even the opening notes make us want to pump our fists!

That don’t Impress me Much – Shania Twain

Shania delivers the ultimate shade with this track about big headed men – we will never not love this.

We can’t Stop – Miley Cyrus

Sure, this was released during Miley’s twerking stage, but there’s no denying it’s an absolutely great tune to play while you pre-drink.

Independent Women – Destiny’s Child

We might have been at primary school when this came out, but we totally identified with this empowering track and still love it.

Can’t get you Out of my Head – Kylie Minogue

We can’t resist doing Kylie’s iconic dance when we hear this – you and your besties will be performing it in the mirror, we guarantee.

Tik Tok – Kesha

Kesha’s music was the soundtrack to our university years, and we identify with every line in this track. Of course we’ve woken up in the morning feeling like P-Diddy!

Unwritten – Natasha Bedingfield

Not only was this the soundtrack to The Hills, it described exactly how we felt as a teen, and still pulls on our heartstrings now – it’s the perfect track for you and your pals to sing along to.

Shout Out to my Ex – Little Mix

We know, the less said about your ex the better, but as the girls say “look at me now, I’m all the way up, you’ll never bring me down.”

Womanizer – Britney Spears

No playlist is complete without Britney Spears, and this is an absolute classic.

Crazy in Love – Beyonce

The same goes for Beyonce; we’ve lost count of how many times this song has kicked off a night out.

Lady Marmalade – Moulin Rouge

Our girls are the only people we feel comfortable enough to sing this around – we sound awful, but just don’t care.

No Scrubs – TLC

The sassiest song in existence? Quite possibly, and we love it.

Single Ladies – Beyonce

Is it even a hen night if you all haven’t attempted Bey’s dance from the video? ?

Don’t pretend you don’t remember the dance routine from school discos…

2012 was ruled by Carly Rae Jepsen and this super poppy track – we still know every single lyric.
