Sophia Olofsson, an employee at Spotify, had a stroke of genius when she made a carefully curated playlist of songs to listen to while in the throes of PMS. We would like to continue her hard work and throw out some of our own suggestions to create the BEST PMS PLAYLIST OF ALL TIME.
For our additions, we decided to stick with music that is (however vaguely) period or PMS related — this means that either the song or the artist has something to do with blood, vaginas, pain, sadness or rage. Enjoy!
