The Ultimate Playlist for THAT Time of the Month

Much better than the one Ashton Kutcher made.

Shoutout to all my people out there struggling through that time of the month. There's nothing worse than the emotional roller coaster that is your period. One minute you're happily planning a night out, then, suddenly you decide to postpone your plans because you feel disgustingly shitty and bloated. Ew.

Next time you catch yourself on the verge of a BF (bitch fit), pause and turn on this playlist instead.

For those of you with Spotify, here are the songs you can expect to hear:

Bleeding Love, Leona Lewis
Waterfalls, TLC
White Houses, Vanessa Carlton
Summertime Sadness, Lana Del Ray
7 Things, Miley Cyrus
Sweetest Girl, Wyclef Jean
Bed Piece, Jhene Aiko Ft. Childish Gambino
Skin Tight, Niykee Heaton
T-Shirt, Shontelle
Too Good, Drake Ft. Rihanna
She's so High, Tal Bachman

The "Turning Up All Night Long(er)" Playlist

At least, most of them.

Parties are one of the best ways to momentarily forget the pressure and anxiety that permanently burdens us in college. Anxiety from tedious classes, internship applications, trying to fathom what your life will be after school, the list goes on.

Parties are the ideal stress reliever, whether they're at a raging frat or at your sports club teammate's apartment, but with great power comes a great responsibility: being the DJ.

Choosing music can be daunting. I mean, who wants to be that person who accidentally skips over the crazy beat drop, or leaves out the one-hit wonder that everyone is dying to drunkenly scream the lyrics to?

The key to a killer playlist is a mix of both throwbacks and the current Billboard dominators. Bottom line: when in doubt, form a track around these amazing hits, in no particular order. The ones listed below are some of the essentials from this featured Spotify playlist.

The Ultimate "Too Good For You" Playlist For Girls

Jams to make you get over whoever made you feel like less than the baddie you know you are.

We've all experienced it: you're feeling yourself, until some boy comes along and tries to make you feel like something less than the fine piece of a** you know you are. Trust me, I've been there.

Here's the thing: if a guy tries to make you feel inferior to him in terms of intelligence, appearance, or any other valuable quality, ditch him. You deserve so much more than someone who tries to tear you down right when you've finally developed amazing self-confidence.

In fact, you're much too good for him.

Luckily for you, I've curated a playlist of songs that are sure to revert you back to the baddie status you held before meeting that heartless guy. Now hurry up, grab some wine, and jam to these confidence-boosting tunes.

The Ultimate Sex Playlist: Guys Edition

The Weeknd is your friend.

Awww yeah. It's time to get it on. And make sure you read the title correctly. These are songs to make love to, not to drunkenly try and get it in with. Keep these in a Spotify playlist called 'Slow Stuff' and break it out when you've got candles and rose petals all around for your significant other.

Thinkin Bout You - Frank Ocean
channel ORANGE in general has tons of songs to freak to, but this is the real standout. Frank's voice will do all the heavy lifting, all you have to focus on is not fucking it up. This is the perfect song to start the lovemaking session; calm but also sexy.

Strawberry Swing - Coldplay
Coldplay might be something of a punch line, but they know how to make really pretty songs that make me weepy and kinda horny. Strawberry Swing is light and fun, and your partner is sure to appreciate Chris Martin's whimsical voice while you smush your genitals against theirs.

Sunday Candy - Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment
There may be no hotter name in music than Chance the Rapper. This song off of Surf is the perfect amount of TPM (thrusts per minute).

The Hills - The Weeknd
When I'm fucked up/That's the real me. Clearly, The Weeknd gets us. His stupid name aside, this song is guaranteed to drop panties and pop boners.

Let's Get It On - Marvin Gaye
No making love playlist would be complete without an oldie, and Mr. Gaye is the gold standard for a reason. Having this song come on will make your partner relax and laugh and have fun.

Heartbeat - Childish Gambino
So Childish Gambino isn't as cool as I thought he was my freshman year, but I still defend this choice. Heartbeat has an awesome bass beat and that's really all that matters when you're going to poundtown.

Your Song - Ellie Goulding
This is the first of three covers that I recommend you freak to. It's almost like having sex with someone after years of fucking other people. There's something familiar but also new and exciting. Plus Prince William and Kate had this as their wedding song. Time to fuck like royalty.

D.A.N.C.E. - Justice
A good sex playlist keeps changing the mood, allowing you to break out all the moves you have in your Swiss Army knife of lovemaking. This poppy number will be the perfect transition from deep-eye gazing to something a little more fun.

Skinny Love - Birdy
I'm all for Bon Iver, but I think hearing him croon about his lost love would make me lose my boner. Birdy is able to keep the same emotion but she isn't quite as sad and tragic and boner-killing.

Home - Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes
Warning: Fucking to this song might actually make you fall in love. With that said, proceed with caution. The whistling introduction and the impromptu conversation between two lovers halfway through this song make it a must for any lovemaking session.

Heroes - David Bowie
Fucking R.I.P., David Bowie. This one's for you.

Whatever You Like - Anya Marina
This is by the far the hottest song on the playlist. Anya literally oozes sexiness as she takes T.I.'s weirdly patriarchal song to another level. It's equal parts hot and sweet and that's the perfect recipe for getting it on.

Or, you can just try FlockU's definitive hookup playlist on Spotify.

This song only came out four years ago, but Simple Plan is the ultimate throwback band so it counts.

Super smooth and summery hip hop.

There's been a lot of 2000's pop in this playlist, so let's throw it farther back.

Everyone's favorite summery pop punk anthem!

The most adorable song ever written, perfect for a carefree day on the beach.

How could I not include this cute, acoustic hit of 2008?

To get even chiller, use the acoustic version in your playlist!

This song will lull you to sleep on the beach. Seriously.

I could include so many more Jack Johnson songs, but I'll stick with this favorite.

Summer Rager Playlist

It's at your place, obviously.

Tipsy - J-Kwon
"Errybody in the club gettin' tipsy!" is one of the most iconic lines from any song.

Just Dance - Lady Gaga
Remember how Lady Gaga's first album was the greatest thing to ever happen back in 2009?

Heaven - DJ Sammy
I'm finding it hard to believe we've all forgotten about this amazing song.

Super Bass - Nicki Minaj
Can you believe this song came out 6 years ago? But we all still love the chorus regardless.

Temperature - Sean Paul
Sean Paul's 2005 album The Trinity has SO many good songs, and they all feel right for summer.

Superstylin - Groove Armada
It has that vibe that makes you wanna dance and sweat your ass off.

One More Time - Daft Punk
On the same album as "Harder Better Faster Stronger" which came out in freaking 2001!

Move Your Feet - Junior Senior
You'll totally recognize this song when you hear it!

Thong Song - Sisqo
How is this not already on your party playlist?! Let me see that thong!
