Now, we’ve all been through breakups at some point in our lives, and music plays a big role in the process of getting over it. Admit it! You know that scene in movies where the actor’s sitting by herself, listening to sad music and bawling her eyes out? Yes, that.

1. We are never ever getting back together

What? You think it was possible to talk about break-ups and not mention Taylor Swift in the same line?

2. Somebody that I used to know

So when we found that we could not make sense, well, you said that we would still be friends. But I’ll admit that I was glad it was over”

3. It must have been love by Roxette

“It must have been love, but it’s over now. It must have been good, but I lost it somehow. It must have been love, but it’s over now. From the moment we touched till the time had run out.”

4. Careless Whisper By Wham! Feat. George Michael

“I should have known better than to cheat a friend and waste a chance that I’ve been given. So I’m never gonna dance again, the way I danced with you.”

5. Irreplaceable by Beyoncé

Because Queen B can make everything better, right? “So since I’m not your everything, how about I’ll be nothing? Nothing at all to you. Baby I won’t shed a tear for you, I won’t lose a wink of sleep, cause the truth of the matter is / replacing you is so easy”

6. Nothing Compares 2U By Sinead O’Connor

“Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling . Tell me baby, where did I go wrong?”

7. You could be happy by snow patrol

“And all the things that I wished I had not said, are played in loops ’till it’s madness in my head”

8. Rolling in the deep by Adele

This woman’s voice is beyond amazing! “See how I leave with every piece of you. Don’t underestimate the things that I will do”

9. Need you now by Lady Antebellum

“Another shot of whiskey, can’t stop looking at the door, wishing you’d come sweeping in the way you did before. And I wonder if I ever cross your mind”


My favourite band EVER. Judge all you want, but I’m that Coldplay fan girl. But, this song… is pure GOLD. “Nobody said it was easy, it’s such a shame for us to part. Nobody said it was easy. No one ever said it would be so hard. Oh, take me back to the start.”
