Let’s face it, whether you’ve been seeing this person for a week or for years, whether you were dumper or the jilted, and whether it was amicable or messy, – breakups SUCK. Time is supposedly a great healer, but in the short term, music may well prove to be the perfect fix. Presenting: a kickass list of 25 songs for pretty much ANY breakup occasion, to help you (in #thatssogloss style) turn this breakup into a “breakover”.:)
P.S.: You are more than welcome to rant about the breakup situation/ ask for advice in the forum.
P.P.S: If there’s an amazing breakup song (particularly in regional languages, etc) that didn’t make this list, let us know in the comments below, lovers. :*
1. It was a good relationship that ended with a falling out:
Gotye Ft. Kimbra: Somebody that I used to know
Best Lines: But you didn’t have to cut me off/ Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing/… you treat me like a stranger and I feel so rough… Have your friends collect your records and then change your number/ I guess that I don’t need that though/ Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
The Smiths: I know it’s over
2. You’re on your own trip and need to wish goodbye to ghosts of lovers past :
Fergie: Big Girls Don’t cry
First Aid Kit: Ghost Town
The Pierces : Alejandro (Cover of Lady Gaga’s Alejandro)
Best Lines: “At this point I’ve got to choose/ Nothing to lose/ Don’t call my name, Alejandro/ I’m not your babe, Fernando”
3. It was a long-term, committed relationship that’s ended
No Doubt: Don’t Speak
Best Lines: “I really feel like I’m losing my best friend/ I can’t believe this could be the end/ It looks as though you’re letting go/and if it’s real then I don’t want to know”
Gwen Stefani wrote this post the breakup of her 7 year relationship with No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal. The stunning 90s style video starring them in the story of their affair really brings out the raw emotion and will break your heart.
Adele: Someone Like You
Best Lines: “Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”4. He cheated on you:
Alanis Morrissette: You Oughta Know
Best Lines: “An older version of me/ Is she perverted like me/ …Does she speak eloquently? / I’m sure she’d make a really excellent mother”
Carrie Underwood: Before He Cheats
Best Lines: “It should be illegal to deceive a woman’s heart” We agree!
Cee Lo: F___ You
5. You are/were the “Other Woman”
Best Lines: “It’s too much pain to have to bear to love a man you have to share”
Also: This is probably the saddest video ever
6. He’s really bad for you but you can’t seem to help yourself! *
Leona Lewis: Bleeding Love
Bonnie Tyler: Total Eclipse of the Heart
*Also, you need to break up with him, girl!
7. You’re a strong, amazing, and (perhaps) only slightly inebriated woman who WILL get over this.
Adele: Rolling In the Deep (Grammy Edition on YouTube)
Why this edition? : Adele turned heart break into a beautiful song that so deservingly won a prestigious award. This video will help remind you of the “after” part of getting over the breakup J
Gloria Gaynor: I Will Survive
Destiny’s Child: Survivor
Christina Aguleria: Fighter
8. You are awesome and he’s a jerk with bad taste:
Beyonce: Why don’t you love me?
Best Lines: “I got beauty/ I got class/ I got style and I got ass…”
Check out the video- Beyonce looks SO hot, you will wonder how anyone could NOT love her- or you for that matter- and hopefully realize that it’s pointless to ask why, and that you are awesomesauce.
9. You were never on the same page:
XX: Heart Skipped a Beat
Best Lines: “I’ve been taking too long to give this up/ The more I see, I understand/ But sometimes, I still need you”
10. It was a fling /You’re over him/ You’ve just run into him (!)
Best Lines: “You must not know about me/ I can have another you by tomorrow”
Stars: Your Ex- Lover Is Dead
Best Lines: “And all of the time you thought I was sad, I was trying to remember your name”
