The List: Favorite Break- Up Songs

The List is a way of organizing our thoughts on a certain topic into an easily digestible post. Topics may range from ranking films of a certain actor who has an upcoming release, to even something as simple as listing our breakfast cereals of choice. Anything is game. Length will vary depending on the individual writing said list, and jumping from one topic to the next may leave you feeling a little dizzy, but FUN (from our perspective at least) is our weapon of choice.

What’s your favorite break-up song? Every time I ask this question I always get the strangest looks. Why would you have a favorite song for such a depressing event? Dane Cook explained it best in one of his stand-up routines, “Sometimes the world taps you on the shoulder and says, you’re going to cry today.” Break-ups are inevitable, like dropping a plate full of spaghetti onto your lap when you are wearing white. I have found that most everyone has a go-to song to describe exactly how they feel in that moment. I think knowing someone else who has gone through this exact situation, and lived through it, is very comforting. So after polling my friends, here are just a few of our favorite break-up songs:

1 End of the Road- Boyz II Men

2 I Can’t Make You Love Me- Bonnie Raitt

3 Someone Like You- Adele

4 Don’t Look Back in Anger- Oasis

5 Miserable at Best- Mayday Parade

6 Fighter- Christina Aguilera

7 Stupid Boy- Keith Urban

8 Nothing Compares to You- Sinead O’Connor

9 Nothing Else Matters- Metallica

10 Don’t Cry- Guns and Roses

  1. Don’t Look Back In Anger will always be my favorite, and it’s Oasis’ best song period.

    That Bonnie Raitt song was a biggie during my last breakup. Another one was “Say It” by Jared Sagal. Thankfully, The Bob turned that song turned into “Over You” by Chris Daughtry.
