10. New Shoes by Paolo Nutini
New Shoes make everything better! Even when you’ve got no job or money
Hey, I put some new shoes on,
And suddenly everything is right,
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and everybody’s smiling,
It’s so inviting!
9. Dancing Shoes by Artic Monkeys
No more holding up the wall; get out dance!
Get on your dancing shoes
There’s one thing on your mind
8. Worried Shoes by Karen O & The Kids
Let your feet take you on a journey; don’t worry, get going
My shoes took me down a crooked path,
Away from all welcome mats,
My worried shoes,
I looked all around and saw the sun shining down,
Took off my worried shoes, my worried shoes
7. These Boots Were Made for Walkin’ by Nancy Sinatra
Hit the road Jack! Before I walk over you in my spiffy boots!
These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.
6. F Me Pumps by Amy Winehouse
A diss track against all scags that dress up for men. Amy takes no prisoners!
When you walk in the bar,
And you dressed like a star,
Rockin’ your F me pumps.
And the men notice you,
With your Gucci bag crew,
Can’t tell who he’s lookin’ to.
5. In these Shoes? by Kristy MacColl
Men, we love you, but not more than we love our shoes
I once met a man with a sense of adventure
He was dressed to thrill wherever he went
He said “Let’s make love on a mountain top
Under the stars on a big hard rock”
I said “In these shoes?
I don’t think so”
I said “Honey, let’s do it here.”
4. New Shoes by Beyonce
Another I’m leaving you, better off without you anthem from Queen B
Cause I’m walking in new shoes now
I got a new song to sing
When I walk in the room every head turns
Every eye is on me
3. Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes by Paul Simon
Diamond Soled Shoes, for the Girl who has Everything
She’s a rich girl
She don’t try to hide it
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
2. Walk in My Shoes by Emily King
You can only be you; and no you can’t walk in my shoes
Everday theres somethin thats new to me, i just, gotta breathe, i dont, know about you
But im the only one that looks out for me, can be me, and… walk in my shoes.
1. Hell on Heels by Pistol Annies
Guys everywhere, guard you’re hearts. They’re coming for you!
I’m hell on heels
Say what you will
I done made the devil a deal
He made me pretty

And I’m gonna break me a million hearts
