10 Songs to Blast During a Break-up

Mar 26

Most of us girls do 2 things after a break up. 1. EAT ALL OUR FEELINGS and 2. Turn up the volume on our iPods/car radios/computers and listen to “break-up songs”. My advice is, don’t gravitate towards depressing, sad songs when you’re heartbroken, rather blast upbeat, empowering and totally catchy jams with lyrics that say all the things that you just can’t! Turn up the volume as loud as you can take it- it totally drowns out the recurring “Why did he leave me?!” thoughts.

1.       Irreplaceable – Beyonce

It’s Beyonce, she’ll hold your hand through this difficult time. This song will have you telling your ex “To the left, to the left” in no time.

2.       Cry Me a River – Justin Timberlake

This is the perfect jam to blast if your ex has wronged you and you are over it.

3.       Fighter – Christina Aguilera

Whenever you feel down or weak, and want to call him SO BADLY, listen to this song and it’ll remind you that you’re so much better off and it’ll give you the strength to put the phone down.

4.       Single Ladies – Beyonce

I almost feel bad for men having to hear women quote this song for the rest of eternity, but I mean seriously …if you liked it then you should have put a dang ring on it. This is the perfect jam for your first night out on the town with your girlfriends as a single woman.

5.       Since You Been Gone – Kelly Clarkson

The perfect breakup anthem. You know that moment after a breakup when you realize that you aren’t crying anymore, you aren’t really even that sad and that you’re moving on? It’s a beautiful thing, and Kelly totally gets it.

6.       We Are Never Getting Back Together – Taylor Swift

When you’re ready for your on again, off again relationship to be lights OFF permanently, and when you’re sure you’re never getting back together (like ever), this is the song for you.

7.       Where I Stood – Missy Higgins

Being the breakup-er isn’t any easier than being the breakup-ee. Breaking someone’s heart isn’t something that most of us would enjoy doing, and this song captures how it feels when you have to end a relationship with someone you love.

8.       Jar Of Hearts – Christina Perri

When you’re in the thick of it and can’t seem to get back to a happy place, you might feel like nobody understands. Cheesy as it sounds, this is a song that will get you through those lonely moments. Plus, the lyrics are so awesome you might be tempted to email them to your ex, but you probably shouldn’t do that…

9.       Someone Like You – Adele

Breakups don’t always have to be full of anger…sometimes it’s just sad and melancholy, with a heavy dose of hope for new, lasting love in the future.

10.   Survivor – Destiny’s Child

While not specifically about a breakup, this girl power song is all about coming out the other side a stronger, happier, better person. Isn’t that what we all wish for when going through hard times? It’s impossible to listen to this song and feel sorry for yourself.
