Peaches hit is perfect for The Serpent Queen’s Game Change

The Serpent Queen soundtrack is for me one of the great highlights of the series’ smart and modern narrative, and I comment on it every week. In episode 6, Catherine de Medici teaches Nahima invaluable lessons and ends with one of Peaches‘ most classic songs: Boys Wanna Be Her.

Also used at the end of the movie Agents 355, the song is wonderful and the face of the irreverent Canadian singer. Written for the 2006 album, Impeach My Bush, it reinforces the artist’s stance against misogyny and gender equality. Born Merril Beth Nisker, Peaches loves controversy. When she wrote Boys Wanna Be Her, she wanted to turn it into a feminist anthem that would sound like AC/DC and reminiscent of The Runaways’ Cherry Bomb. It succeeded since in 2022 the song already has more than 12 million streams on Spotify.

Used in The Serpent Queen, it is the song of the Queen’s turn, in which she sacrifices the love of her life to finally get rid of her enemy and achieve the Crown’s dominion in France. Perfect!

You’ve got them all by the balls
Causin’ waterfalls, stone walls, bar brawls
Common stalls that cause ‘em all
To you, they crawl, body sprawl
Smokin’ Pall Malls, close call, stand tall
Doll, you make them feel so small (and they love it)

The boys wanna be her
The girls wanna be her
The boys wanna be her
The girls wanna be her
The boys wanna be her
The girls wanna be her
The boys wanna be her
I wanna be her
Yes I do

The way you rock, don’t stop
Girl, you got the chops
Flip-flop, she bops, self-taught
You look so hot
Are you conceived, kids receive
Crawling up her sleeve
Parents bleed, can’t conceive
That indeed we’ll never leave (and we love it)

The boys wanna be her
The girls wanna be her
The boys wanna be her
The girls wanna be her
The boys wanna be her
The girls wanna be her
The boys wanna be her
I wanna be her
So do you
