13 Songs For Singles To Sulk To This Valentine's Day

Here lies the perfect soundtrack for this year's supposed holiday of love.

As Valentine's Day approaches, everyone sees the chocolate displays and the overflowing shelves of stuffed animals. They smell the overpowering scent of every flower in existence while at the grocery store and struggle to find a candy bar that is not heart-shaped. All of these sights and experiences grow to be quite irritating for all the lonely souls out there as they rush to the self-checkout all alone. They persist in fighting against the urge to buy those overpriced Dove chocolates after all and just for their sweet Valentine: themselves.

So, without further ado, here is the perfect playlist for all of you looking to sulk your way through Valentine's Day.

1. "La Vie En Rose" by Daniela Andrade

The French phrase 'la vie en rose' directly translates to 'life in pink'. All singles' lives are drowned in pink packaging around this time of year, so in a way you're living your own 'life in pink'. I suppose it isn't the exact same...

2. "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Dave Thomas Junior

No, you can't make them love you if they don't, BUT what if you have no one to begin with? You've lucked out, my friend!

3. "The Night We Met" by Lord Huron

Correction: "The Night You Met Nobody"

4. "I Want To Know What Love Is" by Foreigner

This is a classic song for a classic cry. Grab your tissues now.

5. "Someone You Loved" by Lewis Capaldi

Not only is Capaldi's voice gonna make you weep, but so is the fact that the word 'loved' is most definitely in past tense.

6. "Where's My Love" by SYML

... I feel as though the title is self-explanatory.

7. "Almost Lover" by A Fine Frenzy

The key word here is 'almost'.

8. "Love Stinks" by J. Geils Band

Yes, yes it does stink, and we are here for it.

9. "Hello" by Adele

What would I be doing if Adele, the queen of wallowing, didn't make it on this playlist? Listen and weep, my friends.

10. "All By Myself" by Celine Dion

Celine Dion always makes for a good sob session, right? All. By. Yourself.

11. "Landfill" by Daughter

Literally, the first line of this song is "throw me in the landfill". I suppose you may very well feel like trash right now...

12. "Give Me Love" by Ed Sheeran

Oh, Ed... Please, give these people love.

13. "Love Song" by Sara Bareilles

OK, OK, for your last song, let's get a little bit more joyous, shall we? This song is upbeat, it's catchy, and you can relate to Sara Bareilles. She didn't want to write a love song and you don't have anyone to write a love song about.

Happy Valentine's Day, all you crazy singles! Just be glad you don't have to share your chocolates.

Have you noticed that you're drinking a lot more than you used to during the Pandemic? You're not alone.

I too in recent weeks have noticed that I'm drinking more than normal, and earlier in the day. I've started having a glass of wine with lunch a few days a week, something I never used to do. Although, a recent Odyssey survey shows that most Americans are starting to drink between 4 and 8 pm.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.

NBC

I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.

How To Create A Summer Reading List On Odyssey

Books are the perfect summer companions.

It's officially summer 2020, and yes, we're still in the middle of a global pandemic, which means a lot of your free time this summer is probably going to involve watching Netflix. But you can't take Netflix to the pool or on the beach.

If I'm going to be working from home, it's got to be glam.

I'll be honest, I've never been too big into modern pop culture — I'll take "Citizen Kane" or a movie starring Humphrey Bogart over Brad Pitt any day. But I've watched just about every architecture, interior decorating, and home documentary available on the Internet. I lust after a luxurious pool, backsplash, or mountain view as though the more I watch, the more I can manifest my streaming fantasies into a future reality.

Seeing the beautiful homes is one of the reasons I watch The Real Housewives of New York and Beverly Hills. While the women throw drinks in each other's faces, I'm eyeing the Charlotte Perriand lounger behind them. When someone drunkenly falls into a pool, my focus is mostly on the marble finishes lining it.
