Sure, you’ve got hot water bottles for your tummy, chocolate for your mouth and slippers for your feet. You’ve got this period thing covered! But what about your ears? Your wonderful, brilliant, seashelly ears?! Well, we’ve got you covered with betty’s period mixtape.
Happy listening! Also, soz about the period.
Bad Blood – Taylor Swift
For obvious reasons.
10 Things I Hate About You
The entire soundtrack from 10 Things About You is a period must-listen, because it cycles through pretty much every human emotion. But mostly angst.
Young and Beautiful – Lana Del Rey
Because it’s beautiful and depressing af and you can weep as much as you want.
Mess is Mine – Vance Joy
Sexy back – Justin Timberlake
Because who says you can’t feel great when you have your period? Or even if you don’t, maybe you can dance some of the pain away.
I Hate You So Much Right Now – Kelis
Because there is no better song for pummelling a pillow while imagining your geography teacher. Or any teacher, we don’t discriminate.
All By Myself – Celine Dion
Because even if your parents have just gone out for two hours on a Friday night, there’s a certain point in your period where we are ALL Bridget Jones in her pyjamas.
Bleeding Love – Leona Lewis
Ideal for melodramatic wailing. Also: appropriate.
Wuthering Heights – Kate Bush
The ultimate song for whirling around dramatically in your nightie with massive unwashed hair, plus it counts as English revision. Probably.
