Datalounge Divorcees -- Help me build my playlist

A colleague's divorce is going to be officially completed next week. I know that's a sad time for some people. She... on the other hand... is elated. It's been a longtime coming and she's going to be in a celebratory mood. She's in her early 40s and likes a random mix of heavy metal, hard rock, pop and R&B -- especially 60s-90s/early 2000s music. Anyway, some friends at work are building a Spotify playlist to play at her surprise "Congrats on getting divorced!" party. Don't worry, it will just be a couple of us, we will be socially distancing and masking up in a large outdoor space. Her soon to be ex husband didn't cheat or get violent or anything, but it was definitely "irreconcilable differences" territory. Anyway, what would you put on this playlist?

It can be cheeky, but still has to be work appropriate, so, sorry, no "WAP" (as much as I would love that!)

We're starting with....

"No Scrubs" by TLC "RESPECT" by Aretha "Single Ladies" by Beyonce

“Thorn In My Side” by the Eurythmics. The regular version is good. The “disco” version is really fun. The lyrics are unbeatable.

OP, are you the same person to ask about building a Lesbian BBQ playlist? What became of that.

by Anonymousreply 6909/03/2020

LOL! No, I'm afraid not. I'm a gay man, though I have been to a BBQ hosted by a lesbian. As I recall... we got a lot of 90s hip-hop.

Thanks for all the great suggestions, everyone!

One of my playlists reminded me of a song that would have been PERFECT for OP's party.

You may remember Scandal from the 1984 rock hit "The Warrior."

Well, they had a great song about dumping a bad BF, too! It's really rocking for your rock enthusiast friend.
