Anti-Valentine’s

Listen to this week’s Spotify playlist for an alternative Valentine’s Day:

TCS Mixtape Week 3

Next week’s theme is “Songs to Cure Week 5 Blues” and we want your ideas.

Send your suggestions to music@tcs.cam.ac.uk and you might see your tunes in next week’s mix.

1. Reel Big Fish – Suckers

Completely unsubtle. Completely awesome.

2. Lily Allen – Smile

Lily Allen has to be the queen of relationship cynicism, a perfect dose of Anti Valentine’s.

3. The Smiths – Pretty Girls Make Graves

Morrissey, the king of anti-romance, weighs in with this perfect little slice of disillusionment.

4. The Libertines – Can’t Stand Me Now

Classic love/hate song. Mmm, you can just feel the homoerotic tension…

5. Stereophonics – Dakota

The phonic’s upbeat, I’m-dealing-with-this response to Since I Told You It’s Over.

6. Public Image Ltd – This is Not a Love Song

Good old Johnny Lydon. You can rely on him to stay punk and not sell out. What? I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here? You’re kidding me, right?

7.  Natasha Bedingfield – Single

I don’t need a man and don’t even try to tell me I do!

8. Cake – I Will Survive

Cake’s version of this classic is sure to put you in a good mood.
