I was initially just going to make this playlist outta tracks seething with romantic betrayal. Then I started thinking about how, when you’ve been knocked out of orbit with sadness and hurt after your trust is dented, it’s almost more self-punishingly apt to listen to the songs that remind you of the calm before the scorn—what you listened to to match the times when you truly felt you could burrow safely (or so you thought) into someone you really loved and trusted. PLUS, then I threw in songs from the perspective of those who did the scorning! And are stoked about it! And make it sound like a sick party, even if it makes the cheated-on feel even WORSE! Anyway, have a great Friday night, you guys. Get out there and tell somebody you love them!!!
