32 Songs To Blast In An Empty Apartment On A Saturday Night

We’ll call this sweatpants and pipe dreams. Staying when the rest of the world goes out can take on a very weird vibe sometimes–at once depressing, yet also phenomenally empowering. Sometimes, these are the types of nights you really just need.

The playlist below attempts capture that mood. The entire point here is that if a roommate unexpectedly walks in, you should be completely embarrassed. Bonus points if you’re sining along, proudly booming that terrible voice:

1. Baba O’Riley – The Who

2. Christmas Eve/Sarajevo – Trans-Siberian Orchestra

3. Teenage Dream – Katy Perry

4. IV. sweatpants – Donald Glover – New addition, off Gambino’s newest “look, I’m creative” effort. May end up being a keeper.

5. Wake Up – Hillary Duff


6. Creep – Radiohead

7. Gucci Gucci – Kreayshawn 

8. Tie Me Down [ft. Ray J.] – New Boyz
