Friday Playlist: Loser’s Crew

A consolation prize.

Songs about losers are not always sad—they just remind us that not everything is a victory, and that’s OK. Here are some songs the Rookie staff put together to keep you company when you’re feeling less than stellar.

    The Smiths AND Morrissey omg I love you! ‘Seasick Yet Still Docked’ is one of my favourite songs ever and whenever I’ve had a loss I blast ‘Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now’ on my iPod and bitchface! I love this playlist. Thank you xoxo

    I haven’t listened to this whole thing yet but Comeback Kid by Sleigh Bells is kinda the best thing for me to listen to when I feel like nothing’s working out for me. If anyone reading this needs more songs like this, give it a listen.
