So, you guys apparently LOVE sad pole dance songs. Do y’all need a hug? 🙁
I was in the car with my lil sis for many hours this weekend, listening to her Kelly Clarkson and Ne-Yo cds, and I heard some surprisingly awesome stuff (that’s also nice and family friendly, as opposed to all the French Montana, The Weeknd, and Drake I’ve been dancing to).
It could just be that her car has huge subwoofer things that make EVERYTHING sound epic, but wow, some of these songs were hittin’ my ears mighty fine, and I was doing some mental choreography for much of the trip.
Anyway, because you guys are all frantically searching “heartbreak pole songs” (yes, I check these things), let’s indulge in another sad playlist! Wheee!
This one is special though: this is special dance prescriptions for all of your I-Just-Got-Dumped needs. I got you, okay? Just keep dancing. We’ll get through this.
1. Kelly Clarkson, Addicted
I wish I were more of a polerina because I would Jenyne Butterfly the SHIT out of this.
For dancing through: utter helplessness whilst treading water in the deep end of your feelings. Just wait till you hear that beat drop…
2. Ne-Yo, Back to What You Know
Good “I FEEL BITTER” song.
For dancing through: feeling superior and above all this ish, duh!
3. Omarion Ft. Wale, M.I.A.
For dancing through: break up? What break up? Fuck it, I don’t care!
4. Omarion, Ice Box
SPEAKING OF OMARION. Come on, I know this is old, but it’s a killer.
For dancing through: your need to psychologically dissect all the shittiness. (Don’t bother, you’ll never understand).
5. Jessie Ware, Running
This song makes me want to punch myself in the face. But that’s for personal reasons.
For dancing through: that freefall feeling when you run into him and lock eyes. And then you walk away thinking, “Back to square fucking one…”
6. Maroon 5, Misery
For dancing through: when it’s been a few days and you can’t stand love songs, but you’re ready to put away the Taylor Swift for a while.
7. Maroon 5, One More Night
More Maroon 5, for the inevitable relapse.
For dancing through: your sexual needs. DON’T GO CRAWLING BACK THOUGH, OKAY.
8. LeToya Ft. Ludacris, Regret
“You left the best you had, baby don’t look so mad”
For dancing through: self-righteous outrage.
9. Diddy Dirty Money, Loving You No More
Awww, even Diddy can’t buy his way out of feeling crappy.
For dancing through: Reminding yourself of all the garbage you’ve been through. Yup, can’t really do this again after all.
10. Corinne Bailey Rae, Enchantment
Ugh, it’s so HARD to be responsible for your actions.
For dancing through: I CAN’T HELP MYSELF.
Bonus: Take Me In Your Arms, The Isley Brothers
Okay, you DEFINITELY can’t pole dance to this, and it’s kind of a pre-break up song, but it came on my ipod last night and I loved it, so, here ya go.
Take care of yourselves ladies! As my mom would tell you, you are WONDERFUL, don’t forget it. (She also likes to say “be the one that got away,” but that’s easier said than done). Love you mom! I’m being careful with inversions!
Also, come take my class tomorrow and if you look sad or break-uppy I will TOTALLY give you a hug. 6:30-8pm, and be prepared for some crunches. (The best revenge is looking fabulous, am I right?)
