I never want to exclude those of you who are anti-Valentine’s Day for whatever reason.
Sometimes we’re just in the mood for an anti-love song.
Maybe you’ve just broken up with someone or you’re just not the Valen-type.
Either way, this playlist features some great breakup songs, some great single anthems, and some angry jams to get your anti-Valen on.
– Love Stinks – J Geils Band
– Is she Really Going out with Him? – Goldfinger
I saw them live back when I was a little baby punk (about fifteen years ago +/-) at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver. Still one of the most fun, high-energy shows I’ve ever seen.
– Paper Planes – M.I.A.
” I got more records than the KGB/so no funny business”
– Just like a Pill – P!NK
So much angst.
– Times Like These – Foo Fighters
An uplifting breakup song with a beautiful melody.
-(I Hate) Everything About You – Ugly Kid Joe
I was in a band once. This was the only song we played and then we broke up. Prophetic.
– Santeria – Sublime
So angry. So catchy.
– We are Never Ever Getting Back Together – Taylor Swift
If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know my fondness for TSwift. Jake Gyllenhaal breaks up with you? Write a mean song about him. Take that, Jakey.
– Total Eclipse of the Heart – OLD SCHOOL VERSION
NSFW. I defy you to listen to this and not sing it the Old-School-Way for the rest of your life. “Fuckin’ every now and then I fall apart”
– You’re so Vain – Carly Simon
Did you know Mick Jagger sings background vocals (un-credited)? You’ll hear it now.
– Since You’ve Been Gone – Pitch Perfect Version
Because Rebel Wilson is the tits.
– Romeo and Juliet – Dire Straights
So sad. So, so sad.
– Goodbye, Earl – Dixie Chicks
Got an abusive hubs? Just poison him and chuck him in the lake. Peace out, Earl.
– You Oughta Know – Alanis Morissette
No one gave jilted women of the 90’s more permission to feel their seething rage than Alanis.
Happy listening, anti-Valen-friends.
