Like the red glow of an asteroid hurtling toward Earth, Valentine’s Day is imminent. This holiday looks different for everyone, but it usually includes one thing in particular: cheesy, sappy, overplayed love songs. That might not be your thing, especially if you’re spending the holiday being your own valentine. But if you are, don’t hit shuffle on your “sad girl hours” playlist just yet.
Whether you’re blissfully or sadly single, in a relationship or feeling like “it’s complicated” this Valentine’s Day, the Talisman has a playlist for you, packed with upbeat, confidence boosters and positive vibes (and none of the same old songs that you’d have to be blinded by love to appreciate).
If you’re sick of love songs, try self-love instead with songs like Ariana Grande’s “No Tears Left to Cry” or Florence + The Machine’s “Shake it Out,” and give the playlist below a listen.
