Help, I need a break-up song! What would you suggest?

A friend is going through the meltdown of a relationship and music always makes difficulties easier. What are some break-up songs I could suggest that would help? Old songs, new songs, or gender doesn't matter. YouTube videos would be especially appreciated but not necessary.

  • For me listening to breakup songs always makes the situation worse. I guess different things work for different people. I workout harder and more often instead.

  • Madonna. Power of Goodbye
    I am dead serious. She has nailed it.
    Being able to say goodbye makes you powerful more than ever.

    • This will definitely be on the playlist and placed close to the top.
      "you were my lesson I had to learn; I was your fortress you had to burn"
      no lyrics written better than that. . .

    • Right right, perfect lyrics ha

  • Jhene Aiko - The Worst

    Like songs to make em feel better or songs that they can relate to right at this moment?

    • Probably some of each. Sad songs to let them know that others have been through the same thing. Upbeat songs to help realize things get better.

    • Show All

      bats for lashes - daniel

    • leona lewis - happy, homeless
      chris isaak - wicked game

  • Are you wanting happy or sad songs?
    Because "How To Mend A Broken Heart" by Al Green is an amazing break up song, but it's sad...
