Celebrating Independence With Music

The media celebrates love and being in love. However, being single, or unpaired, is an equally valid stage in life, and being single is an equally valid way of living. In the same way that there are different stages to being in love, and different stages to how we love, there are also different stages to being single.

Below are songs that can be used and/or can be related to different stages and perspectives while being single. Some of them are upbeat and optimistic, some of them are hopeful, some of them are wishful, some of them are on the sad side, and some of them are somewhat silly. In the end, it all depends on how one views being single or where one is in their life. Enjoy!
