Going through that time of the month again?

Posted on

If you are listening to music to try to distract yourself from the fact that your uterus is trying to kill the rest of your body be careful.


Half the world deals with periods 12 weeks a year. But have you ever noticed how many songs are about that time of the month? Or, at least, how many songs can make you think about your period?

Here's a list to help you escape those songs:

1. Lily Allens - Sheezus

"It makes me angry, I'm serious

But then again, I'm just about to get my period

Periods, we all get periods

Every month, that's what the theory is

It's human nature, another cycle

Be nice to me, I'll make you one of my disciples"

2. Taylor Swift - Bad Blood

"I feel heavy, I feel weighted

And I feel hungry, I feel wasted


I'm just waiting for the walls of my insides to come clean

I've been praying for the day that my spirit is finally free

Some days it feels like the ocean lies inside of me

Lies inside of me

And I feel paralysed, been cut down to size

I hardly have the strength, to open up my eyes

Coz I am swollen, and this has stolen my sanity

Well it's hard to see beyond this when it's fighting against me"


4. PJ Harvey — Happy and Bleeding

5. Dolly Parton - PMS Blues

“Head a swellin’, can’t stop yellin’

Got no patience, I’m so hateful

PMS blues, premenstrual syndrome

Got those moods a swingin’, tears a slingin’

Nothin’ fits me when it hits me”

6. Janet Jackson — Feedback

“Cause my swag is serious

Something heavy like a first day period.”

7. Heavens to Betsy – My Red Self

“What is the color, the color of shame?

Is it red? is it blood, blood red?

Does it creep out from my two legs, up to my face, if you notice the stain?

Never wear white or your shame will creep thru.”

8. The Period Song

“And every month it happens yet again

The week that seems to never end

Just take a pill and make it go away”
