If you aren’t familiar with the 2011 movie No Strings Attatched, Adam (Ashton Kutcher) visits the apartment of his lady friend Emma (Natalie Portman) and her roommates, whose monthly cycles have all synced up. Adam comes with cupcakes and music in hand. Here’s the full scene in case you’re seriously interested.
This is the full list of Adam’s song choices: “Even Flow” by Pearl Jam, “Red Red Wine” by Bob Marley, “Sunday Bloody Sunday” by U2, “I’ve Got The World On A String” by Frank Sinatra, “Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis, “Tide Is High” by Blondie, “Muddy Water” by Johnny Rivers, “Here Comes The Flood” by Peter Gabriel, “Red Rain” by Peter Gabriel, “Waterfalls” by TLC, “Red Red Rose” by The Weepies, “Red Tide” by Neko Case, “Why Does It Always Rain On Me?” by Travis, “I Love You Period” by Dan Baird, “Just A Girl” by No Doubt, “Here Comes The Rain Again” by Eurythmics, “Everybody Hurts” by R.E.M., “Stormy Pinkness” by They Might Be Giants, “Time To Flow” by D-Nice, and “Blood Is Thicker Than Water” by Wyclef Jean.
Okay, so maybe the satirical blood-themed mix doesn’t float your boat (no pun intended). Good news is, I’ve got one for you.
If you’re anything like me, shark week leaves you with a heap of varying emotions. Sing out that heartbreak, girl! Adele will have you channeling every sadness you’ve ever felt, and when the song is over, you’ll feel absolutely refreshed.
Throwing it back with this one, Natasha knows how to make you feel like there could actually be sunshine in your pockets. So what if you don’t actually sound like Ms. Bedingfield, belt away every negative vibe Aunt Flo is trying to bring you!
With Marley’s soothing voice and lyrics like “little darlin’, don’t shed no tears” it’s only right that a little Jamaican feel-good makes its way onto the list. Marley does a good job of reminding you of your worth, and with breakouts and the sudden urge to live in those super comfy PINK yoga pants, sometimes it’s needed.
Okay, let’s face it ladies: sometimes we get a little irritable and there’s a ton of pent up anger that, if released, would probably land us in jail. Instead, if people piss you off, put in some headphones and yell it out until the anger subsides.
Sometimes you’ve just gotta cry it out. This song serves as the perfect soundtrack for your sobs. The song brings you flashbacks to that fateful scene on the headboard. I’m tearing up just thinking of it.
During those fateful 5-6 (and sometimes 7) days, it can get extremely hard to bring yourself to get out of bed and face the day. The catchy rhythm, beats and lyrics of this song will have you out of that bed in no time.
With good music on your playlist, facing TOM should be a breeze. Check out this blog for light-hearted humor and facts that every lady should know! Yay, periods!
