Win or lose, you’ve still got some tunes after the Super Bowl

Whether you’re brokenhearted or ecstatic following Sunday’s Super Bowl 51, the feelings are surely running deep. The fourth quarter and overtime were enough to turn the stomachs of the most neutral observer, so presumably die-hard fans of both the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons are in need of some emotional support. And what is a better companion to joy or grief than music?

Below are some playlists—curated by a Falcons fan who can attest to the adequateness of the sad playlist—that will hopefully provide both some accompaniment and inspiration. Both playlists contain some Lady Gaga, because everyone can probably agree it was impressive to see her jump from the stadium roof during the Halftime Show.
