“Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now” – The Smiths
Not the biggest fan of Morrissey (sorry Silverlake), but here’s a goody if you view life through a somewhat gloomier lens. Cathartic for some. Downright depressing for others. Regardless, it’s a perfect song for singles who want to rejoice in their Valentine’s Day melancholy.
“Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)” – Green Day
So your squeeze just got up and bounced huh? Maybe even moved to Ecuador (like Billy Joe’s girl who inspired this song)? Life can get pretty rough in one tragically spontaneous moment. If not for those moments, however, we wouldn’t have great anti-love songs such as these.
“Somebody That I Used To Know” – Gotye
You probably haven’t heard of this one…but I think it’s totally hip and accessible.
Now if we could just get Kimbra to face the camera, that would be grrrrreat.
