Rate or Hate

Rate or Hate

I am literally just saying songs I rate and hate and why. I am not capable of complex thought at this time x



Cellophane by FKA Twigs. I really rate that song and its massive sad indie girl vibes.

Slumber Party by Ashnikko ft. Princess Nokia. My flatmate and I learned the words of that song in NZSL. I can now silently sing the chorus and I learned how to sign ‘cunnilingus’.

John Wayne Gacy, Jr. by Sufjan Stevens. I googled John Wayne Gacy and he was fucked up. I love learning through song. 

Reverse Cowgirl by Mickey Darling. It’s really funny to hear this man singing abrasively to a girl who ‘rides everything that flirts’.

You All Over Me by Taylor Swift. Thank you Taylor for your continuing soundtrack to me crying in the car.



Anal & The Dishes (a song by Wheeler Walker Junior. I promise I’m not just stating my preferences x)

DnB. the music itself is actually fine but the vibes it carries stress me out e.g. breathas in hats and our neighbours screaming for no reason.

Drunk Girl by Chris Janson. If anyone asks you what a nice guy saviour complex looks like, just play them this song.

Coldplay. I am ashamed to say I dated not one but two skinny white boys whose favourite band was Coldplay. They’re not that good. 

‘Tis The Damn Season by Taylor Swift. I love this song but it has an unparalleled power to make me cry. One time I played it while I cried about my ex in the Maccas carpark in front of the new guy I was seeing. So those aren’t positive associations.
