Drank too much last night? We feel you. It’s easy for a simple two-beer night to slide into a an all-out bender — and all the iced tea in the world could not save you from what is now going on. So what can help? Hair of the dog? A thorough shower? Apologize-texting all the drunk-textees? Nah, all you need is an empathetic mixtape to commiserate with. Try this one on for size.
Black Flag — “Six Pack”
Perhaps you were planning to share that case of beer you brought to the party, but things don’t always turn out the way we plan.
David Bowie — “Blackout”
Anyone who has lived through the experience of our Four Loko mixtape from 2010 knows the horrors of the infamous blackout. Is your auto-pilot trustworthy?
Dead Kennedys — Too Drunk to Fuck”
If it was a night where you too were sloshed to get your groove on, chances are the morning is not going to be much better.
The Weeknd — “The Morning”
However, if your morning turned out like Abel Tesfaye‘s, then at least you did something right…that is unless you woke up with your girlfriends in the middle of a desert like in this song’s unofficial video.
Frank Black — “Headache”
The most common result of the wild night out. It is a beast that can take on many shapes, sizes, and colors.
Beck — “Nausea”
If you’re lucky you can get by without puking up that 4 a.m. slice of pizza…
Superchunk — “Sick to Move”
…Just try to stay in bed though.
Lauryn Hill — “When It Hurts So Bad”
It’s going to get worse before it gets better so you may as well do something about it…
The White Stripes — “Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine”
Don’t try to just tough it out. Eat a slice of bread, and take three acetaminophen pills.
Cat Power — “Water & Air”
Hydration is what you need. Get a bottle of water and get outside.
Beach House — “Walk in the Park”
A brisk stroll through the quiet parts of your neighborhood might do a world of good.
Blur — “Coffee & TV”
Caffeine might work. Also see if there’s anything on. A good distraction should get you out of your funk.
The Dresden Dolls — “My Alcoholic Friends”
And lastly, don’t hang out with the same crew two nights in a row, unless they’re feeling the same way and might just want to chill indoors with a movie.
