I’ve been doing this long distance relationship thing for about a year-and-a-half now. It’s hard, don’t get me wrong, but it also has its perks. Not only do I have an excuse to hop on a plane and fly across the country twice a year, but I also get snail mail. Yup. My partner and I send things to each other. Like, we go to the post office and get tracking numbers and all that.
I’m heading out west next week for a visit (yup, super stoked), and in honour of my trip, I’d like to share with you the five cheesiest songs for a long distance relationship.
1. I Want Crazy by Hunter Hayes
Of course, the first thing we all do before buying a one way ticket is burst out in song on our beds.
2. Kiss Me Thru the Phone by Soulja Boy Tell’em
The fact that, “I really wanna kiss ya but I can’t,” is a defining moment in this song just does it for me.
3. Come Back…Be Here by Taylor Swift
All I think of when I hear this song is this.
4. Farewell by Rihanna
This is one of those songs you listen to when it’s pouring rain and you’re sitting on a window seat on public transit. For a split second, you feel like you’re in a music video. You’re also probably wearing a hood.
5. Counting Down the Days by Natalie Imbruglia
Just watch the music video. So early 2000s.
What are five cheesy songs you can think of?
