Girls Of The World: A Playlist

There's nothing that testosterone-fueled rockers like to sing about more than girls. Not even drugs, or fast cars can hold a candle to the power of the female form. And seeing that many rock bands get to see the world while on tour, it makes sense that many tunes have been inspired by women from across the globe. Including exotic women from other cultures in a song can help add mystery, and for this playlist I've selected a dozen songs inspired by women from a dozen different countries. Now seeing that there are 196 countries in the world, I'm sure to be missing a bunch here. So what would you add?
