Year-End Results: Favorite Breakup Songs of '08!

Year-End Results: Favorite Breakup Songs of '08!

If you could create a soundtrack of your life, you'd probably have happy music, sad music, and music for every mood in between. Though a song can't make the pain of a breakup go away, it sure can help lift your spirits, or allow you to give into your blues, if that's the path you want to take. As part of my Best of 2008 coverage, I asked you to tell me your favorite breakup song of the year, so I'm back to round up my favorites that I found helpful, too. Check out my top five picks below:

"Apologize" — One Republic
“Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” — Beyonce
"Hot n Cold" — Katy Perry
"Better in Time" — Leona Lewis
"White Horse" — Taylor Swift

Rascall Flatts - What hurts the most When was that released? I have no idea. Cascada did a version of it this year.

I dont really like Beyonce, but "If I were a Boy" is another good breakup song. Also, Apologize wasnt released in 2008. :/ But if we're going that route. Seventy times 7 by Brand New is the BEST breakup song! Some of the lyrics go "dont apologize I hope you choke and die" and "so have another drink and drive yourself home, I hope theres ice on all the roads and you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt and again when your head goes through the windshield" makes me feel so much better to turn this song on full blast and scream along with it!

"Love Lockdown" by Kanye West. I also like Beyonce. As annoying as that song gets, for some reason I always find myself dancing to it. And "So What" by Pink gets a vote from me as well.
