The Most Important Songs of 2014

Christian Santiago, Staff Writer

There have been a lack of pro-feminist and body positivity in the media. It seems to be somewhat of a taboo topic for an unknown reason. But, starting in the 2000’s, things have definitely started to change. Flash-forward to 2014 and enter “All About That Bass” and “Anaconda.” One sends a message about loving the skin that you were born in with a pop background and great vocals to go. The other taks a song that objectified women and turned it into an anthem for loving yourself. While yes, these two songs do have some major flaws (one being that you’re still chasing a man’s approval when you should love yourself because its who you are, the other still promotes objectifying women and says it’s okay to love a man even though he sells narcotics), these songs show a step in the right direction.
