Hi again, Stanford! This week, in honor of Drake’s surprisingly successful single, we bring you “Lost Love and Blinging Hotlines,” a series of odes to the significant other who got away. Though Ingrid Michaelson’s decidedly not over it on “Over You,” and Otis Redding is all broken up on “I’ve Got Dreams to Remember,” Ella Eyre (“Comeback”) says they’ll rue the day they left.  

Again, comment any song suggestions for other readers or playlist requests for us!
