Songs for when bae makes you mad AF
Last week, the dude I was hanging out with starting being weird. He was hanging with some other girl who is quite literally the saltiest girl I have ever met â€” you know, one of those when you can just feel your aura gettinâ€™ dirty by being in their presence? Bae had a decision to make between cake and saltinesâ€¦. And he chose to take it salty that night.
You know that feeling when you are driving and you just want some sort of angry anthem to listen to so you can sort out whether or not you should leave his ass in the dust? But then, WHOMP, you canâ€™t find shit to listen to? Thatâ€™s where I was atâ€¦. I mean, you canâ€™t be mad AF and be listening to Ed Sheeran, right?
Well girl, we got your back for when your playlist game is weak. I have created the unicorn playlist of songs to listen to when bae makes you mad AF. Listen to it on Spotify hereÂ and check out my Cliff Notes below.
Take it Old School: If youâ€™re like me, you like to drive down Sunset Blvd. and sing lyrics loud AF based on your mood. When boo is misbehavinâ€™, take it old school with En Vogueâ€™s â€œMy Lovinâ€™â€ and chant along â€œnever never gonna get it,â€ with your windows rolled down â€” it really helps if youâ€™re super mad. Also try Destinyâ€™s Childâ€™s â€œSay My Name,â€ and the all time obvious fave, TLCâ€™s â€œNo Scrubs.â€
Cake vs. Saltines: Letâ€™s face it, if heâ€™s hanging with her, this is less than ideal. Sometimes when he canâ€™t handle the sweetness of your cake â€” he goes in for that salty-ass single life. For when that happens, try the obvious â€œSwish Swishâ€ by Katy Perry, or the classic angry bitch anthem of the 90â€™s, Alanis Morissetteâ€™s â€œYou Oughta Know,â€ or the always fun to sing-along-to, â€œBitchâ€ by Meredith Brooks (You know, â€œIâ€™m a bitch, Iâ€™m a lover?â€)
When You Want him to Just Apologize: So now youâ€™re considering accepting an apology for whatever idiot thing it was he did â€” try making him listen to NAWASâ€™ â€œWrongâ€ or Bea Millerâ€™s â€œBuy Me Diamonds,â€ since like duh thatâ€™s the obvious way to get forgiveness right quick. I mean, Iâ€™ve never said no to a pair of Gucci sneaks as an apology, have you? But also, donâ€™t forget your girl Demi Lovatoâ€™s â€œSorry Not Sorryâ€ for when you decide you were always in the right.
When There Ainâ€™t No Going Back: If you really wanna feel some vengeful vibes without being a mean ass person, try watching Olivia Oâ€™Brienâ€™s music video for â€œRIPâ€. Girlfriend shows up at her ex-boyfriendsâ€™ funeral and takes a bat to his memorial photo, and itâ€™s weirdly satisfying to watch. Also good for this and less mean, HAIMâ€™s â€œKept Me Cryingâ€ and Camila Cabelloâ€™s â€œCrying in the Club.â€
If You Decide to Take Him Back: In the event that you decide that maybe you were a lilâ€™ harsh on him, try Astrid Sâ€™s â€œSuch a Boyâ€ and let him know there will be â€œNew Rulesâ€ like the ones Dua Lipa sings about. And in the end, listen to â€œStayâ€ by Zedd and Alessia Cara so you can hopefully remember all the good things about him, and why you decided to keep him around.
Officially Done: If youâ€™re a mushy one about breaking up, then LANYâ€™s â€œThe Breakupâ€ will likely serve you the best. But if youâ€™re kinda bitter about things, try Billie Eilishâ€™s â€œParty Favor,â€ in which she breaks up with her dude via voicemail on his birthday â€” again, totally satisfying. Or try the even more obvious â€œThis is Me Breaking Up With You,â€ by Hey Violet.
When Youâ€™ve Moved On: If you identify with TSwift and just wanna let him know that this was all his fault, obviously spin â€œLook What You Made Me Doâ€ on repeat for maximum anger relief. If you happen to accidentally see him with another girl and your new boo and youâ€™re a lilâ€™ sad about it, try FINNEASâ€™ â€œIâ€™m in Love Without You.â€
When You Miss Him: If shit has gone totally array and totally not as planned, and youâ€™re a big olâ€™ mess about the sitch, try Hey Violetâ€™s â€œHoodieâ€ â€” which with a title like that, is pretty much self explanatory. Or if you need something more poppy to keep you from crying your eyes out, try Vesperteenâ€™s â€œWhat We Could Have Been,â€ because heâ€™s basically missing out on a LOT now that he ainâ€™t got you around.
When You Remember You Broke Up for a Reason: Everyone always says that people break up for a reason, so if you are one of those who breaks up and gets back together twelve times only to remember that you broke up with him for the same reason ten times ago, spin Halseyâ€™s â€œBad at Love.â€ But then, when you realize heâ€™s just an idiot and will never change, go for Hey Violetâ€™s â€œFuqboi.â€ Then spin DJ Cassidyâ€™s â€œHonorâ€ a few times and let singer Grace remind you that â€œGirls like me got too much to offer.â€ Cuz girl, itâ€™s true.
