Part 2 of Freddie Cosmo’s “Love/Sick Series” running all month long.


When you crack open that bottle of wine vodka whiskey…

Mary J. Blige – I’m Going Down (Welcome to the pity party.)

Joy Division – Love Will Tear Us Apart (Misery has RSVP’d.)

Kelis – Caught Out There (“I hate you so much right now.” Truer words were never spoken.)


Then you’re like, “you know what, fuck him/her!”

Icona Pop – I Don’t Care (I really don’t though.)

Miley Cyrus, Party In The USA (because the alcohol is starting to really kick in.)

Cee-lo Green, Fuck You (Yup!)

Jackson 5 – Never Can Say Goodbye (because you’re 3/4 through the bottle.)


After that you feel that ugly cry coming on…

TLC – waterfalls (“Oh shit, I fucking love this song!” You say, thinking about the relationship or lack thereof.)

Diddy f/ Keyshia Cole – Last Night (And you’re thinking about calling/texting.)

Lady Antebellum – Need You Now (And you don’t even like Lady Antebellum… you don’t even like country… you don’t even know this song… wtf spotify?!?!)


And finally it’s a full on sobfest as that bottle gets lighter…

Hole – Violet (“Courtney love is fucking amazing.” You say, imagining yourself as the lead singer of a 90s grunge band.)

No Doubt – Don’t Speak (*eyes start to water.)

Any Drake Song ever (…..*passes out fully clothed with bottle in hand.)
