Period Playlist: 10 Songs We Love To Listen To!
The scene from ‘No Strings Attached’ when Ashton Kutcher’s character creates a “Period Mix” has stuck with us for a while. We asked the team to come up with a song they listen to when they’re on their period, and the results helped us build this (pretty awesome) Period Playlist!
SHAKE IT OFF – TAYLOR SWIFT
Why we love it: It’s just one of those songs with a super catchy beat – and lyrics that get stuck in your head.
Why it’s great for your period playlist: When you’re feeling really mopey and down, this is a great pick-me-up song.
WATERFALLS – TLC
Why we love it: A throwback to the 90s, this song packs a powerful message. Don’t go chasing waterfalls.
Why it’s great for your period playlist: ‘No Strings Attached’ got it right when listing this song. If you’ve ever had a super heavy flow day, you can probably relate to the idea of “Waterfalls.”
MAN! I FEEL LIKE A WOMAN – SHANIA TWAIN
Why we love it: Powerful and fun! The best thing about being a woman – everything!
Why it’s great for your period playlist: Sometimes we just need something fun and upbeat we can dance to.

MY SILVER LINING – FIRST AID KIT

BLOODSTREAM – ED SHEERAN
Why we love it: We just love Ed Sheeran’s voice and the song is definitely catchy.
