One of my favorite pasttimes used to be creating the perfect breakup mix. No, I wouldn’t make them when I had just broken up with someone. I would make them when I was single or in a relationship, in anticipation of some I figured that if I could make the absolute perfect breakup mix, then I could get over any breakup in less than 60 minutes.
Okay, maybe not so realistic. But I had a plan! I would start with the really desperate “I want you back” songs, then move on to the sappy “my life is over” songs, and finally into the triumphant “you’re a jerk and i’m better off without you” songs. And yeah, there might have been some Kelly Clarkson in there.
Anyway: all this is relevant because I just found the most fantastic to end any break-up mix. It’s a new track from Swedish pop due Icona Pop, and you need to clear out your schedule for the next 30 minutes, because this one’s going on repeat. Infectious doesn’t even begin to describe it.
I actually came across this track last weekend, but I was waiting on posting it because this is a song that you can’t really appreciate at 10 AM on a Tuesday. This is the last song you put on as you’re getting ready on a Friday night. It’s pure pop music – a beat that gets you moving before you even know what’s happening, and a tune that get stuck in your head and just won’t leave.
Killer Lyric (That’s Somewhat Questionable When You Really Think About It): “I threw your shit into a bag and pushed it down the stairs / I crashed my car into the bridge / I don’t know care / I love it”
Number of Times I Listened To The Song On Repeat The First Time I Heard It: 6
Number of Times I Listened To It On My Phone In Bed That Night: 2
And the celebratory mood of this song is the perfect atmosphere to let you know this is my 100th post at 70dayweekend! I just wanted to say thank you so much to anyone and everyone that has taken the time to read, comment, and follow. It means so much to me, and I hope you’re enjoying reading my blog as much as I am writing it. xoxo, laura
