First things first, you guys.  I’m not anti-love!  I love love!  If love were a person, I’d be in love with them!  Love is the best.
But if I didn’t love love, I would listen to these songs over and over again every Valentine’s Day.

Click here to listen to them!

1. “Song for the Dumped” By Ben Folds Five
Absolute anger and cynicism at
its blatant best.

2. “Tylenol” By Ben Kweller
The song goes from needing Tylenol for a “headache you gave me” to more disastrous ends.

3. “Rootless Tree” By Damien Rice
The chorus is unrepeatable, as most angry songs are, but it’s beautiful and furious at the same time.

4. “Keep Yourself Warm” By Frightened Rabbit
It takes more…

5. “Heartbreaker” By Girls
It’s about knowing right from the start what you’re getting yourself into, but doing it anyway.

6. “I Quit Girls” By Japandroids
I could argue the meaning of “after her, I quit girls” all day with Sam Rosenberry, but we’ll let you decide.

7. “A Track and a Train” By Shout Out Louds
Sadness at its most lonely.

8. “Giving Up on Love” By Slow Club
Epitome of self-explanation.

9. “Tired of Sex” By Weezer
Epitome of self-explanation 2: Weezer’s revenge

10.“Blue Skies” By Noah and the Whale
“This is the last song that I write while still in love with you.”
