Bettys, have you gotten into a fight with anyone recently? Have you had a misunderstanding? Have words been said and lines been drawn? Has it turned into a gigantic disaster? Well, now is the perfect time to fix it, because today is International Make-Up Day!
And no, we don't mean the kind of makeup you put on your face. International Make-Up Day is all about reconciliation and rebuilding relationships, so instead of singing an angry breakup song, why not extend an olive branch with one of these 9 tunes? Whether you're into classic rock, country, indie rock, or Top 40 hits, we've got a make-up song for you.
Now go out there and work things out!
1. The Beatles, "We Can Work It Out"
Let's get things off an encouraging note by trying to see an issue from someone else's point of view. After all, life is very short, and there's no time for fussing and fighting, my friend.
2. Brenda Lee, "I'm Sorry"
Does anyone else associate this song with a Bounty commercial from the early '90s? Whatever; no one says "I'm sorry" like Brenda Lee!
3. The Decemberists, "Apology Song"
Have you ever accidentally allowed a friend's bicycle to get stolen when you were supposed to be keeping an eye on it? Try this one. Bonus: It's a true story!
4. Feist, "So Sorry"
Awww. We're sorry too, Feist. Let's make up!
5. Nirvana, "All Apologies"
Okay, to be fair, we've never been quite sure what Kurt Cobain is actually singing here, but we're willing to roll with it.
6. Coldplay, "The Scientist"
Because who doesn't want to be apologized to in the dulcet tones of Chris Martin?
7. Frank Sinatra, "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word"
For that matter, who doesn't want to be apologized to in the dulcet tones of Frank Sinatra?
8. Kings of Leon, "Use Somebody"
To be used during that moment when you realize that you weren't ready for someone before-as well as that you ARE ready for them now. How's about a second chance?
9. Black Eyed Peas, "Meet Me Halfway"
Even hip hop enthusiasts need a way to apologize. Coming back round to the spirit of the Beatles, let's work together to sort it out!
