A 50+ Song Playlist For A Woman Scorned

Getting burned by the person you’re dating sucks, but your consolation prize is free license to OD on angry chick music for the next 6-8… years. Here’s a Spotify playlist with 50+ of my favorites, but feel free to suggest more in the comments. Get listening and pick the song you’ll maim and kill at karaoke this weekend. (Oh, and for those of you who can’t access Spotify, I’ve copied and pasted the list in its entirety below. I’ve also updated the summer playlist, the boy band playlist, and the hip hop playlist. You’ve got a lot of catching up to do.)
