List Rules Songs with "woman" or "girl" in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about women as a subject.

It's almost impossible to find a male artist's discography that doesn't have a song about a woman in it. Whether the music is about love, hate, betrayal or admiration, women and girls are often the centerpiece when it comes to a track's lyrical content. This is a ranked list of all the best songs about women, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "girl," "women," or "woman" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about women as a subject or theme. Examples of songs include "Fat Bottom Girls" by Queen and "Evil Woman" by E.L.O.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the women songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
