Valentine's Day Playlist For Single Ladies

Valentine's Day Playlist: Hey, I'm Single and I'm Fine With That

I think how each of us feels about Valentine's Day usually depends on our particular mood at the time (read: personal relationship status). Musicians are particularly good at articulating these moods of ours, which is why many of us rely on them more than ever this time of year. So from now until Valentine's Day, I'll be posting a series of themed playlists that might capture how you're feeling about romance this year. Whether you have a new person you're excited about, are in the midst of a break-up, or are happily going it alone, you're going to need a soundtrack to get you through the 14th, don't you think?

So first up, songs that empower and celebrate life as a single person. Valentine's Day can kind of suck when everyone in your office gets flowers delivered except for you. Fear not, for there are plenty of songs that you can stick in your ear to drown out all those happy (or is it sappy?) displays of coupledom and make you feel good about being on your own. What songs do you listen to when you're single? For some of my suggestions, just hit play when you

If Natasha's Bediengfield's "Single" is not on the list, that must be because it's too obvious. I may also suggest Fiona Apple's "The way things are" and Gabriela Kulka's "New to somebody" (See http://gabakulka.com/out/eng/index.htm ).

Love the list, though I have to say, as a girl who's Taken and Fabulous, I take it as a slight, umm slight, that you have to be single to be empowered....

"How I Feel" by Kelly Clarkson.....LOVE this song...it's catchy and poppy but it's got some fitting lyrics: "I'm getting tired of believing Even sicker of pretending That it's not so bad, just wait it out Oh, I think you're feeding me lies again The only good man left wasn't him And that's how I feel right now so just let me be..."

Great playlist, Buzz, and I love the accompanying explanation. I love that you have "99 problems" leading into "How F*cking Romantic." Brilliant.

It's almost a crime to have the single girl's V-Day playlist without Natasha Bedingfield's song "Single"! Great beat, awesome lyrics "Dont need to be on somebody's arm to look good (I like who I am) Im not saying I dont wanna fall in love cause I would Im not gonna get hooked up just cause you say I should" Give it a listen Buzz...I bet you'll like it :)
