Getting Sassy in the Noughties

I'm still absolutely in love with the songs from my youth as I know most of you will be. Songs these days have nothing on what we used to listen to. Yes, yes, I know this is what our parents used to say to us when we were growing up but for me it's completely true. I grew up in the age of squeaky clean pop bands, choreographed dancing routines and everything in between. Still today I love all of that and much of my iTunes is full of it.

There are certain songs that I turn to when I'm in certain moods. I got thinking recently about the songs I listen to when I'm in a particularly sassy mood. Either when I feel like I can take over the world, or when I think that no-one can get me down. Usually the songs that fit this mood don't come from the recent years, rather the good old nineties and noughties. For today's post I thought I'd list my sassy soundtrack from yesteryear and hope that I can take you down memory lane!

Sassy songs soundtrack from noughties nineties

Definition of Sassy - lively, bold, and full of spirit; cheeky.

Why’d You Come In Here Looking Like That - Dolly Parton (1989) - A real oldie, but still a goodie. Everyone's heard Dolly's classics including 9 to 5, but if you haven't had the pleasure of listening to this one you are in for a treat. Dolly gets riled up asking why ex is always looking so good.

There’s Your Trouble - Dixie Chicks (1998) - Another country song, because county is always so sassy, but this one is from a girl group. The girls are singing about a man missing out on them and what a loss it is.

I'm Gonna Break Your Heart This Time - Kaci (2001) One of my favourite artists from the noughties. I was obsessed with Kaci, 'I Think I Love You' was my particular favourite which I'd play ALL THE TIME. This one is a more sassy song that you can't help but sing along with.

Watch Me Shine - Joanna Pacitti - (2001) - If you've seen the first Legally Blonde film then you'll know this song. It plays as she storms out of the party in her Playboy bunny costume and gets her study on to prove she can succeed in Law School. This is great if you need some extra courage to do something out of your comfort zone.

Independent Women, Pt.1 - Destiny's Child (2001) - You can't talk sassy songs without the Queen's of sass. This features on the Charlie's Angels soundtrack and just encapsulates the Angels attitude in one song.

Boys - Britney Spears (2001) - Another icon I couldn't leave out of this list of sassy songs was Britney. Although she has a back catalogue of great songs, this one is quite sexy and empowering.

As If  - Blaque (2002) - A song from one of my all time favourite films, Bring It On. If you grew up in the noughties and didn't see Bring It On you must watch it NOW. This plays as Missy shows off her new cheerleading uniform and it's just such a good tune.

Ladder in My Tights - Amy Studt (2003) - The album this song features on was a favourite of mine. I don't think Amy Studt went on to do much more popular music, or if she didn't I didn't catch it, but this is such a good song about not needing, or wanting to fit it. It's all about doing your own thing no matter what people think.

Hesitation - Stacie Orrico (2003) - I'm reliving my childhood through all these songs! Stacie Orrico was another of my loves. This song is all about doing what you want right now and not hesitating.

Leave (Get Out) - JoJo (2004) - This song just recently came back into my ITunes Library but it's still as sassy as ever. Such a good song to sing along to when you're in a particularly angry mood.

Fergalicious - Fergie (2006) - I wish that Fergie had continued with more music as her first album was just brilliant. Full of fun and energetic tunes like this one. This is a great one for working out in the gym, just try not to sing along...

Mariella - Kate Nash (2007) - This comes from another album that I was, and still am, pretty obsessed with. I know all the words and I'm proud. I like this song as it's all about Mariella who did what she wanted to do and didn't let anyone tell her what to do.

Have you got any other good sassy song suggestions that I've forgotten?

Also let me know if you remember these songs and if they've brought back some good memories!
