Listen to this Valentine's playlist if you're bitter

If there's one thing that single people have mastered when it comes to Valentine's Day, it's the art of pretending they don't have a fuck to give. "PDA? Disgusting. Wow, look at that couple over there holding hands. That looks sweaty. Nobody deserves me. I'm incredible. I love sleeping alone in a double bed, there's so much space! The day after Valentine's Day is the best because all the chocolate is discounted and I can use it to fill the empty space where my heart should be... it's all a social construct! Capitalism!" Sound familiar? Now, this is top secret information, but most of the time this is just a façade. It's the barrier put up by people who have been royally. fucked. over. Loved-up couples only make them feel sick because they're salty about it, but don't want to seem like they're clingy and, god forbid, still have the feels. We all have this wavey "I'm so chill" act we have to play now, don't we? Psycho ex is never a great look. But when you're alone in your bedroom, you can be as salty as you like. So, if you need a playlist to scream to on Valentine's Day as you take a lighter to a photograph of your ex... look no further... We Are The In Crowd - The Best Thing (That Never Happened) Screamable lyric: "You'll crack just like the rest when I break your fucking jaw" This is possibly the best post-break-up song, especially when you were never officially with that person in the first place. We Are The In Crowd's pop-punk track is timeless. Assert your self importance, let them know what they've missed out on and scream along to that lyric about breaking jaws. Dua Lipa - IDGAF Screamable lyric: "Your time is up I'll tell you why, I'LL TELL YOU WHY!" This song probably sums up the whole meaning behind this playlist. You don't give a fuck, or at least you'd like to act like you don't. So sure, Dua is in that lovely (and incredibly ego-boosting) position of her ex actually realising they've messed up and have come back on their knees, but her message of independence and letting go pushes through. Another song that proves love. ain't. shit. The Aces - Physical Screamable lyric: "Lately, you told me you love me, you don't" The Aces perfectly encapsulate that (usually temporary) "yeah well I never liked you anyway" feeling we all get in 'Physical' which romanticises but empowers the it was just sex and I absolutely have no feelings relationship. Anteros - Cherry Drop Screamable lyric: "Lying, lie, lie, lying" Have you been cheated on? Are you sick of people's shit? Have you been lied to? Do you like songs with lots of sugary puns? Grab a lollipop as a microphone and look no further than 'Cherry Drop'. Mabel - Begging Screamable lyric: "I wanna see you on your knees, wanna see you begging" Again, like Dua, Mabel is in that position of actually being apologised to. Who knew people did that? But the message is clear: take no shit, make them work for it, you're okay on your own. Charli XCX - Sucker Screamable lyric: "Fuck you, sucker!" Charli XCX isn't even salty on 'Sucker'. It's just straight up 'fuck you', the post-bitter level we all aspire to. Let's forget she even did 'Boys' and channel this pop princess as an independent idol.
