UofMixtape: Valentine's Day for Singles

Monday, February 13, 2017 - 5:22pm

If you are anything like me and have been single your entire adult life, Valentine’s Day can be one of the best days of the year. No, really. It’s the one day of the year I can scream Taking Back Sunday's “Cute Without the ‘E’” without feeling like I’m stuck in middle school. Why? Because Valentine’s Day gives legitimacy to the sadness of being single.

For you, I have crafted one of my finest, most diverse playlists to date for the cathartic release you sometimes need flying solo. Unfortunately, hip-hop just doesn’t have the emotional intensity I need on this day, so if you’re a Drake sad-boy, best of luck to you. My playlist spans more than 15 years of some of humanity’s most emotional contributions to music. From spiteful cuts like “Seventy Times 7” and “Goldwaite” to aching anthems like “Screaming Infidelities,” I’ve got all of your emotional needs covered this Valentine’s Day.
