As long as you’re not experiencing a breakup at the time, I must say that breakup songs are the most fascinating to compile! Obviously the actual act of breaking up is no fun, but it was definitely a source of inspiration for a wide variety of some of the best, most expressive and even empowering music. In my attempt to create a breakup playlist (in case your Valentine’s Day didn’t go as planned…) without the standard Celine Dion and Adele hits, I found so many gems! If you need some tunes for drying your eyes or slashing a certain someone’s tires, listen below or on my Spotify page. In a parallel vein, here’s last year’s playlist “Guaranteed to Ruin the Mood”. For songs that are actually related to the holiday, check out previous February playlists here and here.
