Songs For Swingin' Divorcees: A Playlist Inspired by Sondre Lerche's "Bad Law"

by James Rickman

If only all divorces produced songs this bangin'. With "Bad Law," Norwegian Brooklyn transplant Sondre Lerche seems to reassign most of the five stages of loss: "denial" turns to "mellow summer vibes," "anger" to "spazz-core" and "acceptance" to "disco euphoria." Sure beats crying and playing air-drums to "All By Myself."

In that spirit, we whipped up a playlist of the bounciest breakup songs we could think of. We've also included a selection of lyrics from the songs, which you can transcribe into your journal or scream out the window on your way to Fort Tilden.
