Bachelorette Party, a legitimate compilation of original recordings sold in specialty shops, consists of carefree, upbeat pop hits that range from the mid-'70s through the 2000s. Wham!'s "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" excepted, all of the selections come from women, such as the Weather Girls ("It's Raining Men"), Kelly Clarkson ("Miss Independent"), Bangles ("Walk Like an Egyptian"), Cyndi Lauper ("Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"), and TLC ("No Scrubs"). Some of the songs, such as Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive," would be more suitable for a "divorce party" compilation. Typically priced affordably, less than a more common major-label release, this would obviously work outside the context of its intended purpose.
