13 of the best break-up songs ever

Everybody who’s had their heart ripped out and stomped on has a break-up song. You do. I do. Heck, some of us have entire Itunes break-up playlists (guilty). I know this is a highly subjective topic, but what the hell: I’m going to share some of the songs that have helped me get through bad times. I hope, if you’re in break-up hell right now, some of these help you through the weekend and make you feel a little bit less alone. And feel free to share your favourite break-up songs in the comments.

You Ruin Me, The Veronicas

Broken Heart, Spiritualized

Love Me Again, John Newman

So Beautiful, Pete Murray

Gotten, by Slash with Adam Levine

All By Myself, Celine Dion

I Don’t Believe You, Pink

Rolling in the Deep, Adele

Somebody That I Used to Know, Gotye

Torn, Natalie Imbruglia

Don’t Speak, No Doubt

The Scientist, Coldplay

Someone Like You, Adele

What’s the break-up song you have (or have had in the past) on repeat?

    This came up on my video feed the other day, and it stung like mad to hear it again.
