Playlist help: NBD breakup songs
March 16, 2014 6:54 PM Subscribe
I'm starting to date (after only having been in Serious Big-Deal Relationships previously) and am having fun, not looking for anything serious. This entails a certain amount of rejection that I'm trying to keep in appropriate perspective. I'm looking for songs to compile into a playlist, on the theme of "oh well, it didn't work out, I'm still fabulous/will easily survive." These are not Big Heartbreak songs, just "eh, too bad, no big deal." Ingrid Michaelson's "Girls Chase Boys"
is the perfect example of this. Do you have other suggestions?

I like music in the Janelle Monae/Tegan and Sara/indie-pop meld, at least for this playlist. I'm a queer lady and date folks of all pronoun preferences, so bonus points for songs that aren't too heteronormative.
