Are you done watching Nicholas Sparks movies
Cursing at the television?
Sending yourself flowers?
Did you run out of ice cream?
Valentine's Day sucks, I know.
But it is the great equalizer, because it sucks for every single person.
So get your single friends together, plug in your iPod, and let these stay-strong-during-valentine's-day tunes drown out the sound of your sobbing.
1. Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It), Beyonce
There is no such thing as a single girl playlist without a little Beyonce.
I don't care if you're a metalhead or a country queen, this is the only song you need to dance away your problems.
2. Blow Me One Last Kiss, P!nk
Men. MEN. Can't live with em, can't live without them.
But just for one song, have enough of their ridiculousness, grab your hairbrush, and put on a show.
3. I Don't Wanna Be In Love, Good Charlotte
Love is silly, right? ...Right?!?!?!
Whether you believe this statement or not, GC's love-sucks anthem is untouchable. A nice throwback to 2008 (which is 6 years ago...just let that sink in grandmas).
4. Love Is Gone, David Guetta
Who says fist pumping, synth blasting techno music can't fix your broken heart?
With a chorus that was made to be screamed at the top of your lungs, get ready to dance, laugh and cry all at once.
5. Gunpower and Lead, Miranda Lambert
Unleash the scorned ex-girlfriend hiding in all of us with a Deep South country song.
Where are those pesky cowboys my mom bought in a garage sale....
6. Stupid, Sarah McLachlan
Let's slow down the tempo a little bit.
Locate your girlfriends, your tissues and a nearby ocean to throw yourself in, because no one is immune to Sarah's melancholic voice.
7. Everything We Had, The Academy Is...
One of my favorite songs by one of my favorite (but sadly disbanded) alt groups.
Check out the video if you can, it's incredible (and by it's, i mean Will, the lead singer).
8. Somebody To Love, Queen
The most classic love(less) song of the 20th century.
The opera that shares the tale of many a single souls.
Freddy Mercury will live on as long as humanity and Valentine's Day does.
9. According To You, Orianthi
Picking the rhythm back up again with a girl power song.
Orianthi is an amazing guitarist, lyricist, and all around bad ass bitch who don't need no man.
10. Your Favorite Song, Your Favorite Artist
This isn't about me. This is about you treating yourself, making sure that you realize how unimportant V-Day is, because loving yourself is about 132832931931 times more important than a crappy Hallmark card.
So play your favorite song, surround yourself with your favorite people, and buy yourself that discounted chocolate. You deserve it, dammit.
