Anti-Love Playlist/ Love Playlist

For some, Valentines Day can suck. It's now the 15th - you can celebrate, you survived it. Whether you've just gotten out of a relationship or never been in one, if you're single, you may have a rather negative opinion on the day completely dedicated to partners. But it's not all bad. The day is more or less a way of expressing love for everyone. My best guy friend sent me the most wonderful message about how he loves me as a friend and it made my entire day. A simple kind message to a friend can do that. That being said, here's an Anti-Love playlist for those who are still regretting their Ben & Jerry's binge with The Notebook on replay.

1. 2NE1 - Go Away
For those who don't know Kpop, it's Korean Pop Music and one of my favourite genre's of music. Most KPop songs are more or less love songs but this jewel right here is for those who just wanna say 'fuck you' to their partners. Self explanatory title of 'go away' talks about a relationship that is unrequited and the girl has finally had enough. Even if you cannot sing along, join CL, Dara, Bom and Minzy for a party. They're single girls too.

2. Jason Derulo - Ridin' Solo
I remember how popular this song was when it was released and that's because it's the ultimate single tune. For those who are consider the 'forever alone' status positively and look at it as a 'free pass' for everyone and everything. Do those things you couldn't when you were in a relationship. As a singleton myself, I get depressed at the sight of loved up couples but what're you gonna do? Break them up? Envy them? That's unhealthy. Everyone finds someone eventually so enjoy the free time while you can.

3. Fall Out Boy - My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark
When it was revealed FOB were off hiatus, I think I actually cried.
Thankfully, I discovered the news and this awesome song the day before Valentines so this was a helpful track to forget all about the pink, flower infested and love heart stupid day. This song is so damn catchy and you wanna do nothing but headbang to that awesome chorus! This song has nothing to do with love, anti-love or being single but it's a song you can just rock out too and forget all about the day itself and remember it the next when you're waking up with a stiff neck.

However for some, Valentines Day is gonna be put to it's best and there's going to be ring exchanges, flower giving, cards, fancy restaurant dates, some steamy stuff in the bedrooms and young puppy love. That's okay. So, I put some love songs as well for those who are not boycotting this day.

1. Bon Jovi - Always
You can't have a lovesong playlist and not include this song. Every single rock fan out there will have your head for a moshing object.
The music video is kinda upsetting but the song itself is the loveliest song all about undying love for your beloved. And let's not ignore the fact that Jon Bon Jovi looks his absolute best in this video ;)

2. Nsync - This I Promise You
Nobody fucking judge me.
This song is old, underrated and sang by the gayest of pop boybands but nobody can deny that this song is effing cute and it speaks a lot to me. I first heard about this song when someone online said they want their other half to sing it to them. It talks a lot about problems in relationships and external factors that may potentially damage the relationship but it doesn't and that the other person (boy/girlfriend) will be there for them no matter what. It's a nice love song and it may mean something to someone out there.

3. Tracy Chapman - Fast Car
I heard this song on the radio in the car and it's been on my mind ever since as the most real love songs out there. It talks about the realistic hardships that couples face and the risks that young couples have to face in order to make it work and how mistakes are made and regrets are formed but love was always the intention and goal. It's a lovely song, sad in places but it's a love song nonetheless.

Hope you guys had a wonderful Valentines regardless of the social situation and relationship status <3
