The smell of the roses, the pink and red hues filling the streets and the prix fixe menus for two at every restaurant you walk by; there is nothing quite like Valentine’s Day to remind you of every fucked up relationship you’ve ever had. Here at Chart we want to embrace the day and share with you a top ten list dedicated to the memory of that special person(s) not in your life. Happy VDay!
10. K. Flay - Blood In The Cut
Maybe you’re angry and if you need it K. Flay’s got you. Make some noise. Fuck shit up.
9. Blood Orange ft. Samantha Urbani - You’re Not Good Enough
Even if you have to convince yourself; they weren’t good enough and you were never in love. Period.
8. Bloodhound Gang – I Hope You Die
7. The Donnas – I Didn’t Like You Anyway
“I heard you even wet the bed” It’s ok you were just looking for a good time. Onwards and upwards.
6. Cake – I Will Survive
The quintessential fuck you to Valentine’s Day and to any past relationship.
5. Lolawolf – House Key
The lyrics are cold. The beats are hot. Go get your house key back.
4. Big Sean – I Don’t Fuck With You
Don’t pretend you’ve never cranked this and sang along. We’ve all been there.
3. Arcade Fire – I Give You Power
You have the power. You can take it away.
2. Fleetwood Mac – Go Your Own Way
Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham wrote this about his failing relationship with singer Stevie Nicks. When she asked him to remove the lyrics “Packing up and Shacking up” Lindsey said no and Stevie Nicks had to perform this song about her indiscretions for years to come. That’s just cold.
1. Flight of the Conchords - I’m Not Crying
And at the end of the day if you still can’t fight back those tears it’s probably just allergies?
