Breakup Songs

Songs to Listen to After a Breakup


After a breakup, there are certain single girl habits you might need to pick up again. Be it saying yes to happy hour, updating your interested-guy-radar, or rockin' some pumps on a night out. But before you get there, you have to go from grief to gratefulness that the relationship is over. Music can help that process. For National Singles Week, we asked our Facebook fans for their favorite post-breakup songs. Keep reading to see what they are.

  • "Cry Me a River" by Justin Timberlake

Gonna Get Over You by Sara Bareilles, for sure. (Just noticed CND said the same thing). The new video is funny, especially the end. Sara has a lot of breakup songs that are awesome. I listened to Kaleidoscope Heart after my last breakup, it helped me a lot. Little Voice helped too. Also, Fighter by Christina Aguilera.

Terrible list. 'Don't Speak', by No Doubt. 'Breakin' Up', by Rilo Kiley, 'It Ain't Me, Babe' or 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright' by Bob Dylan. 'Hide and Seek' by Imogen Heap.

This list is lame. Probably because you only asked your fb friends- who are infinitely more important to you than the people who actually visit your website.
