Forever Alone Mixtape: Eight Songs for Singles On Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day is generally accepted as a stupid holiday for saps, Hallmark, and women with no spines. The only thing it's good for is selling candy and giving Hollywood another excuse to make disgusting and totally implausible rom-coms that no one will remember.
Still, being single on National PDA Day doesn't have to be a total bummer. In fact, being single is something we should rejoice in, heartbreak is something to learn from, and playing the field is just an all-around good idea.
So you feel less alone this V-day, we made you a mixtape with some of the greatest anti-love songs ever recorded, because dancing with yourself is better.

8. Eamon - "Fuck It (I Don't Want You Back)"
This surprise jam from
2003 was the only real hit for R&B singer Eamon, but at least he
went all out on his one shot. Delightfully packed with expletives and
sexual muckrakery, this song tells the story of a man who's been cheated
on by his best girl. Sure, he's probably a misogynist and she's
probably a stripper, but deception hurts everyone equally. This song is
perfect for getting the rage out.
7. Beyonce - "Single Ladies"
Sometimes breaking up isn't so hard when the guy you're leaving is a non-committal scrub. Beyonce is the official spokesperson for independent women across the globe, and this song is perfect for the go-getter in all of us. Remember ladies, the best way to get back at your ex is to dress like a slut and flirt with richer guys in his presence. He'll realize his mistake immediately.Next Page
