It’s February 15th, also known as the day after Valentine’s Day, also known as the day the value packs of heart-shaped Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups go on sale for at least half off and every drug store in the country. Whether you hate that you love the black Friday of Hallmark stores or you love to hate its capitalist schemes, this blessed time of cheap candy and corny trinkets is something we can all appreciate. To celebrate, we’ve put together a playlist of our favorite angsty teenager-era anti-Valentine’s Day anthems for your enjoyment.

We’re a few days into 2015 and there were a few albums that made a huge appearance in 2014. 2014 was the most stressful year for me. With the end of my junior year and the start of my senior, it was hard to stay up to date with new music. I started listening to many songs on the radio, something I usually try to avoid. Spotify became my best friend this year. Through Spotify, I found four albums that made my 2014:
In Technicolor by Jesse McCartney
Favorite Track: “Back Together”
No Interruptions by Hoodie Allen
Favorite Track: “Won’t Mind” feat. MAX
X By Ed Sheeran
Favorite Track: “Photograph”
In the Lonely Hour by Sam Smith.
Favorite Track: “Not in That Way”
I know that seeing these albums in the same list seems weird but 2014 was a year of listening to many types of artists, some I never thought to listen to. I couldn’t pick a favorite album because I haven’t actually had that time to sit down, listen, and understand the songs on each album. These four albums brought back my childhood, helped me through late night study sessions, and were put together beautifully. I recommend these albums to anyone that wants to start listening to different kinds of genres in the new year, I’m sure that you’ll fall in love with at least one of these.
