17: ‘Girl in a Country Song’ by Maddie & Tae

Natasha spent her youth in a country song. There wasn’t much respect in being a girl. There used to be, but now, girls weren’t good for anything other than looking good for the guys. They had to wear a bikini top and painted-on, cut-off jeans and walk around barefooted.

The guys didn’t even call the girls by their names. They simply called out ‘hey girl’, when they wanted them over to sit with them on their tailgate. The girls were really just supposed to climb up in the guys’ trucks, keep their mouths shut and ride along, whether they wanted to or not – and consider themselves lucky to get that.

Natasha and her friend weren’t going to take it anymore. They rejected any advances and announced their displeasure with the system publicly by mocking it.

16: ‘I wanna have your babies’ by Natasha Bedingfield

Natasha meets Steven in Vegas.They spend time together there and think, that will be it. It isn’t. They become a couple.

Natasha wants to bear his children. She doesn’t want to risk losing him, so she buttons her lips. She knows, it would scare him if knew just how badly she wanted this and how far she had thought ahead (she has already picked out the church, they’ll attend, what the children’s names  will be and which schools, they’ll go to).

Sometimes she just can’t contain her feelings. When this happens, she pretends, it was a meant as a joke.

She uses methods belonging to her church to wish for him to get ready for her to tell: lighting candles and throwing coins into a fountain. She doesn’t want to say anything to Steven before she’s sure, he’ll respond positively to the idea.
