Sure, Valentine's Day can be a romantic celebration with a significant other, but it's also a time to embrace being unattached.

Helen Fielding – creator of Bridget Jones, whose relationship ups and downs have played out from novels to the big screen – created a playlist for all the single ladies out there on Feb. 14 that lists music Bridget (played by Renée Zellweger) would approve of.

Sharing the selection of songs exclusively with PEOPLE readers, the list contains everything from "Crazy for You" by Madonna, to "Littlest Things" by Lily Allen, and naturally, "Have You Met Miss Jones?" by Robbie Williams.

"How fast things change," Fielding says. "It was cassette compilations when I first wrote Bridget Jones. In Mad About the Boy, 21st-century Bridget is into Twitter and texting. Spotify is made for Bridget-type solitary drunken dancing evenings. The important thing is to remember not to text during them."

Adds the author, "A Mad About the Boy Spotify playlist [is] for any Bridget Joneses out there who find themselves spending Valentine’s Day alone – with a bottle of vodka."
