5 Great Songs To Wallow In A Breakup To [VIDEOS]
Congratulations, you're single again. We've all been there – what seemed so awesome has turned into an emotionally shattering, soul crushing breakup. What you should be doing is hanging out with your friends, getting out of the house, focusing on work. What you want to do is lie on your couch in sweats, consume as many empty calories as possible and listen to music that will ensure you don't take any healthy steps toward gluing the thousands of shattered pieces of your heart back together. So here are 5 great songs to sing at the top of your lungs while thinking of that special person who so easily destroyed you.
Cutting Crew – (I Just) Died In Your Arms
When listening to this, make sure to focus on the “I shoulda walked away” portion. Then go over in your head all the times you should have seen it coming but were too blinded by the promise of love to notice the obvious and leave them before they left you.
The Black Keys – Next Girl
This is one of those songs that you listen to thinking it'll help you move on. It's important to remember that all those lessons you plan to take on to your next relationship are ones that you should have learned sooner and applied to the relationship you just had a hand in destroying.
Ben Folds Five – Song For The Dumped
It's time to get angry and this is your anthem. Just try to stay angry long enough to make it through the entire song, unfortunately the odds of breaking down and curling up into the fetal position before the end of the second verse are dramatically higher.
Coldplay – Fix You
Turn the lights off and curl up under a blanket. When Chris Martin asks “Could it be worse?” the answer is “No, no it couldn't possibly be worse right now.” Make sure to play the montage of your failed love in your head over and over and over again. Get lost in the false hope that you can salvage this somehow, that there's a chance to make things all better. Then open your eyes and realize you have, in fact, lost something you can't replace.
Pearl Jam – Black
Possibly one of the saddest songs ever written, this will be the song that guides you to that dark place of self-loathing. You should only play this song when you're home alone or in your car so as that to ensure privacy while you belt out some of the most depressing lyrics as loudly as possible, especially the “Why, why can’t it be mine” part. Bonus points if you can find a version where Eddie and the gang transition into “We belong together” at the end.
