This is for my girls all around the world…

So what am I not supposed to have an opinion?
Should I be quiet just because I’m a woman?
Call me a bitch ’cause I speak what’s on my mind
Guess it’s easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled

When a female fires back
Suddenly the target don’t know how to act
So he does what any little boy will do
Making up a few false rumours or two

Christina Aguilera – “Can’t Hold Us Down”

With the Noughties Trivia Special only two days away, I’ve been busy “researching” the decade; listening to old So Fresh compilations, re-watching Legally Blonde on DVD, reading the Wikipedia entry for Bring it On

While combing through my iTunes to begin work on the night’s playlist and audio questions, I rediscovered this gem.  Most people wouldn’t peg me as a Christina Aguilera fan – because I’m not – but her 2002 Stripped album is a great piece of work, and this song is just so damn catchy.  And, of course, the lyrics are dripping with girl power: “Never can, never will, can’t hold us down!”

    Ah! I love this song and wondered why no one else ever seemed to be crazy about it. Thanks for posting it up 🙂

    No worries, Tegan. It’s a great song! I don’t think “Dirrty”-era Christina gets enough credit from people.
