1. "Riding Solo" by Melissa Polinar

Take some time
Time alone
Get lost and be at home
Into the wild

Now I feel glorious, glorious

I know how to scream my own name
Scream my name

Now it’s nothing but my way
My loneliness ain't killing me no more

I'm with some hood girls lookin' back at it
And a good girl in my tax bracket
Got a black card that'll let Saks have it
These Chanel bags is a bad habit

You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him

Well, I, I'm all the way up
I swear you'll never bring me down

I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is

Stop staring at the mirror getting faded
Saying you won't fall in love
Stop trusting all those fake idiots
Trust me, they don't give a fuck

We sing it proudly
We're too busy dancing to get knocked off our feet

The best people in life are free

Nowhere to be
A simple little kind of free
Nothing to do
No one but me
And that's all I need

And everybody wants to be touched
Everybody wants to get some
But don't you play a song about love
When I move my body

18. "Boys" by Charli XCX

I want 'em all, I want 'em all
And when they finally leave me, I'm all alone but
I'm lookin' down and my girls are blowin' my phone up
Them twenty questions, they askin' me where I'm at
Didn't hit 'em back

19. "No Scrubs" by TLC

A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me

Life’s too short to be sitting around miserable
People gonna talk whether you doing bad or good, yeah

We only wanna dance
We're gonna let our hair hang down
