With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, no one can deny that love is in the air. There are those of us who embrace the celebration of happy couples, and those of us who would rather make like Punxsutawney Phil and crawl down a hole in the ground. Nonetheless, the music will continue to play; this February Playlist is one that you won’t want to miss out on during the month of love, or, for some, aggravation.
1. Love Song – Sara Bareilles: Although the title of this song is “Love Song,” it is meant to be the complete opposite. This is a song for pushy or rude past girlfriends or boyfriends that did not deserve to stick around anyways. Bareilles makes it clear in her 2007 hit that if someone is going to give ultimatums, be rude, or threaten to leave, then they don’t deserve a love song. Use this song to remember this Valentine’s Day to make sure you’re happy and that your loved one actually deserves a love song.
6. Send My Love (To Your New Lover) – Adele: A more vengeful song from Adele, published in her album 25, this song is written for those who are not so excited about Valentine’s Day this year. Whether your crush has chosen someone else or your ex that you aren’t quite over has moved on to someone else, this is the perfect song if you’re looking to kill ‘em with kindness, and a little bit of sarcasm. This song speaks to Adele’s ex about the other woman that he has moved on with, sarcastically sending good wishes to them, knowing that their fate will be the same as Adele’s. If you’ve had a recent breakup, or are still bitter concerning an old one, this song is the one that will more than likely catch your ear this February.
