You Need A Villain Playlist
People are sometimes stupid, and common sense isn't always common. Even worse are the days when everyone and everything seems like it is working against you. You know those days I am talking about, the start of your villain origin story. It usually comes after your breakpoint or the final straw, and you are now the bad guy. So, if you're going to be a bad guy, make sure your theme song is a good one, worthy of your villainously.
Every great villain has a great origin story and an even better soundtrack.
Do you think that The Joker, Poison Ivy, or even Harley Quinn woke up one morning and said, "Hey, I want to destroy the earth today"? No, they did not; they were pushed. It's because of people or situations that have caused them to turn to the dark side. Now I am certainly oversimplifying it, and these DC Villains deserve a much better explanation of their backstories, but for this post, you get the idea. But unfortunately, we do not live in a DC comic book, and we can not go around blowing up nuclear plants and toppling the Justice League. So the next best thing is to have our Evil Villain playlist ready.
Everyone should have a Villain playlist for moments that warrant villain action.
It is therapeutic. Trust me. My personal playlist gets used at least 4 times a week, especially if I have to drive on I-4 (shout out to all my Florida folks). Not to brag, but my villain playlist should be in a movie, and if you happen to be a movie producer who reads this, please email me.
Most of us already have a playlist for when we are sad, pre-gaming, or when trying to set the right mood, if you know what I am saying. So why not add another one to get you through the week when you have to deal with terrible bosses, a series of unfortunate events, and all other ungodly adult things? Think of this playlist as your personal hype man, reminding you that you are the right one today and are a force to be reckoned with.
Here is a snippet of my Villain playlist.
So I challenge you to go through your music library, channel your inner villain, and comment on some of your must-have Villain Playlist songs.
