I’m going through a boys-are-kinda-sh*tty phase right now, and every phase needs a good soundtrack. These tunes go from woe-is-me to female empowerment, so hopefully by the time you get to the end of the list you’ll be over stupid boy of the week and ready to move on!
“Perfect” Rogue Wave
The lyrics say it all: Everything was perfect ’till you came along. Get out the tissues and wallow.
“When I Was Drinking” Hem
Remember how you never did your homework cause you were too busy fussing over your man? Well, think of all the time you wasted…sad, isn’t it?
“Melt Your Heart” Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins
This one’s a heart-wrencher…just cry it out. Yup, get the ice cream. Keep crying.
“Tears Dry On Their Own” Amy Winehouse
See? You’ve stopped crying, and now you’re starting to be a bit more rational. And upbeat!
“Merry Happy” Kate Nash
Now think about the good times you had with your ex-boy (but don’t dwell too much or you’ll get upset all over again!)
“Since U Been Gone” Kelly Clarkson
The classic. Now is the time to get mad. Consider tearing apart something he left behind.
Now that you’ve got the crazies out of your system, don’t forget that you deserve to be loved–not dicked around!
“Golden” Jill Scott
The ultimate female empowerment jam…ideally you should dance around your bedroom in your underwear. See? You’re over him already.
