Valentine's Day Playlist for All the Single Ladies

It's Valentine's Day – and you know what that means.

Your coworkers are all wearing red. (You're in black.)

Your "couple friends" are making Facebook positively nauseating today with multiple "I love you, schmoopie" posts. (You posted a link to a news article on rising divorce rates.)

Cut-outs of a certain flying, fat baby line store windows. (You think it's no coincidence that Cupid rhymes with stupid.)

Got Friggatriskaidekaphobia? Here's Your 'Survive Friday the 13th' Soundtrack!

Survive Friday the 13th with Our Spotify Playlist

Originally posted 07/13/2012 12:00PM

If you're suffering from Friggatriskaidekaphobia – to the uninitiated, that's a fear of Friday the 13th – fret not. Here's just the solution for your bad luck: a very lucky Spotify playlist.

While Rebecca Black's "Friday" may come to mind, it isn't on Spotify.

Instead, we dug up some fun songs about superstitions ("Knock on Wood," "Black Cat," "That Old Black Magic"), Fridays ("Freaky Friday"), and even the date itself (Johnny Cash's haunting "Thirteen").

This way, those not feeling so "Lucky" – or find the day too "Spooky" – can just listen to "Tomorrow Will Be Kinder" and pray for Saturday to get here as quickly as possible.
