I came across my Break-up Playlist (“Forget Him”) on my iTouch an hour ago. It has been awhile. I forget how awesome it was (not the breakup). I’m the type that mopes for maybe one day, sometimes not even, and then I hunt for only the catchy, deadly breakup songs I know. So I cry for a couple hours, followed by some powerhouse, strong made to get your heart past the sorrow. The best ones are written by girls, just saying.
#1: Kelly Clarkson “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)”
Kelly Clarkson satisfyingly hits the spot for me, with a killer voice and all-too-true lyrics.
#2: Matchbox 20 “Disease”
Believe it or not, this was the very first song I clung to at 16 after my first breakup. Extremely catchy, and a touch on the angry side.
#3: Carrie Underwood “Before He Cheats”
I`ve never been cheated on, but this song still gets me going 🙂
#4: Muse “Feeling Good”
Muse`s version of this Nina Simone original is bound to have you feeling better than good. It does for me 🙂
#5: Christina Aguilera “Fighter”
Strong women unite! The video is a little weird, but the lyrics are right up my alley, and the chorus hits a home run.
#6: Carolina Liar “I’m Not Over”
Found this song a few years ago, this is more of a realistic song, but still worthy of being on the list.
#7: Justin Timberlake “Cry Me A River”
Yet another infamous ‘cheater’ song, ALWAYS A FAVORITE!
#8: Kelly Clarkson “Never Again”
Once again, she makes the list. I think it’s her experience in this field that makes her successful.
#9: Adele “Rolling In the Deep
Adele. Need I say more?
#10: Pink “So What”
This is a very special song I save for driving down the highway, aviators on, and the attitude to boot.
What song would you add to this list?
