DS Original Content: Karina’s summer break-up playlist (w/Hot Mulligan and Spanish Love Songs and The Wonder Years and more!)

Hi babes! Don’t worry; I’ve missed you too. But how are you enjoying those summer flings you’ve picked up over the spring? Yeah, they are nice, huh? Well – for many, good things don’t last, and here’s what this post is about; break-up season. It appears twice a year for those who haven’t heard of […]

Hi babes! Don’t worry; I’ve missed you too. But how are you enjoying those summer flings you’ve picked up over the spring? Yeah, they are nice, huh? Well – for many, good things don’t last, and here’s what this post is about; break-up season.

It appears twice a year for those who haven’t heard of the so-called break-up season. The first season is during May/June – in time for those lovely festivals, and now winter is over, so many don’t feel like sitting on the couch doing nothing. And again in September/October because now summer has hit its final note, and many want the person they can snuggle up on the couch with.

And if you’re like me, wondering why it can’t be the same person? Apparently, for some, it’s with the mentality that a) the person you clung to in the cold winter and drank red wine with possibly can’t be a party animal as well. Wouldn’t that person not rather sit at home and watch the trilogy of Lord of The Rings than go feral during some bands they mentioned they liked but couldn’t like as much as me and my friends? b) they didn’t want to commit, and that sucks to hear. But sometimes it’s so simple.
“Karina, you only mentioned those poor winter/autumn partners. Why don’t we stay with the partners we found during our summer?” – This is actually going to feel like a slap in your face. But here it goes; you know how you acted during the festivals, pool parties, beach BBQs, or whatever? Those dummies don’t want to take that home to their parents and likely found someone new on Tinder (or so I was told back in 2011 by the guy I was seeing). Fuck them either way. They suck. You don’t.

So what did I do to help the fallen ones get through this? I’ve made you a playlist of what I call the best songs to help you get through a breakup, and sorry, babes, I didn’t add any Taylor Swift! But I have a playlist with her on it if you want it. But first, let’s go through the top five of the playlist and talk about why it’s on.

KARINA’S TOP FIVE CHOICES TO MEND A BROKEN HEART

Fleeting love of what could have been? Don’t you ever wonder where a past crush ended up?
So did Hot Mulligan! And therefore, they are number 1 on my list.

What’s a heartbreaking list without The Wonder Years? Last year they released an album that had parents in tears. But now they released a b-side of some album, which sums up everything I can relate to — broken trust and still longing for someone.

It’s Fall Out Boy. They made a career out of having their hearts broken and breaking teens’ hearts back in the ’00s. Hell, Patrick Stump broke mine. But this is mature, and it’s actually one of those that you catch yourself jamming to with friends at a BBQ — total sing-along.

Spanish Love Songs… They stole my heart and broke it when they canceled their concert in Copenhagen due to Covid. But this song, and I might add seeing them at Slam Dunk in May, i’s what takes the cake for me. They are my go-to.

These guys aren’t new but are finally gaining their deserved attention. If Graham from Sad Park sang this during a concert, I might actually be the one sobbing in the back. The whole album is great, but I love this song.

For more, I’ve added the full playlist below, and please, let’s add to it together and send it to our friends. Even Forever Unclean and Goodbye Blue Monday once again makes a deserved appearance.

Canadian pop-punk veterans Sum 41 have announced they will be breaking up. The band’s 27 year run will come to an end following the release of their final album Heaven :x: Hell, and upcoming European and North American tour dates. They made the announcement today, posting this statement on social media:

“Being in Sum 41 since 1996 brought us some of the best moments of our lives. We are forever grateful to our fans both old and new, who have supported us in every way. It is hard to articulate the love and respect we have for all of you and we wanted you to hear this from us first.

Sum 41 will be disbanding. We will still be finishing all of our current upcoming tour dates this year, and we’re looking forward to releasing our final album “Heaven :x: Hell,” along with a final worldwide headlining tour to celebrate. Details will be announced as soon as we have them.

For now, we look forward to seeing all of you skumfuks on the road and are excited for what the future will bring to each of us.

Thank you for the last 27 years of Sum 41.”

Sum 41 rose to prominence in the early 2000’s with the release of their debut album All Killer No Filler. The news of their breakup comes as a surprise, as they’ve been touring extensively in recent years, and have released two new albums since guitarist Dave “Brownsound” Baksh rejoined the band in 2015.

The band’s final album Heaven :x: Hell has been teased as a Double LP with a half pop-punk / half metal-tinged punk rock tracklist. It will be the band’s eighth studio album, following 2019’s Order in Decline. We’ll keep you posted as more details are revealed.
