The most crucial part of getting ready to paint the town shred is kicking out the proper selection of jams. I heartily recommend an artisanal blend of tuff guitar-based tracks by well-meaning ruffians, intelligent disco, Shakira, and sexy shoulder-rollers that could easily serve as stage music for when you accept your crown at the #1 Sickest Babe in the Universe Entire pageant that I just made up. This playlist will make you feel like a beautiful, immortal giant, and I’m confident it will be an excellent soundtrack for throwing the entire contents of your dresser on the floor before finding the exact perfect going-out skirt to befit a #1 Sickest Babe such as yourself!

Still from the movie Modern Girls.
