The Bitchcraft Soundtrack (Part One)

I guess not surprisingly, there are a lot of songs out there about complex, unattainable or just plain fed-up women. Plenty of them are penned and sung by confused men, but there’s also no shortage of women celebrating their own oh, so unpredictable selves.

So, without further boring ado, I bring you the “Bitchcraft Soundtrack,” Part One. This list was arranged (with the invaluable aid of friend Kate) for maximum contrast, but any aspiring DJs out there should feel free to mix and match.
