Every month Rookie, a website that’s devoted to supporting and encouraging teenage girls and women, selects a theme song.

Earlier today, I published my list of the 40 best music videos of 2014. It’s always a bit dangerous to publish a year-end list before the year is actually over, especially in this new surprise-release universe where we now live.
