With most of the songs coming from 2000 and 2001, Girls Night Out 2002 offers a good retrospective of women in music (mostly in the pop and R&B realms) from the first part of the millennium. Songs from Christina Aguilera ("Come on Over Baby"), Jennifer Lopez ("I'm Real"), Pink ("You Make Me Sick"), Destiny's Child ("Bootylicious"), and Alicia Keys ("Fallin") are among the bigger names included, mixed with cuts from lesser-known artists like Toya and Amanda Marshall. The only track that's not from near the release date of the compilation is Aaliyah's "Age Ain't Nothing But a Number," from her 1994 debut of the same name. It's kind of a weird choice, considering the singer had bigger, and better, hits, but presumably it was included because of her untimely death in 2001. All in all, however, Girls Night Out 2002 is a good way to collect some of the top singles of the time without having to buy all the albums.
