Heartbreaks… something that some of us are very familiar with. Apart from eating ice cream while watching The Notebook (probably not really watching it because our eyes are filled up with tears), what we like to do is also wallow in our own sorrowness with heartbreak anthems.
Totally nothing wrong with that, you feel how you want to feel. So, here are a few different types of heartbreak songs to fit all the different stages of heartbreak. Let’s check out if any of your favorite tunes are in!
This is normally the first stage of any heartbreak. We’ll all be in denial, wondering what happened, what went wrong? We proceed to question ourselves, how can we salvage this situation? If this is you, here are some songs that ask the same questions too.
Halsey, Lauren Jauregui – “Strangers”
Lyric: (I miss the mornings with you laying in my bed…)
Harry Styles – “Lights Up”
Lyric: (It’d be so sweet if things just stayed the same…)
Troye Sivan – “Fools”
Lyric: (I’m tired of this place, I hope people change…)
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated (welcome to the club!) and you don’t understand WHY they break your heart. Most of these songs ride on the theme of screw them. So, if this is how you’re feeling right now, let’s sing these songs out loud to feel better!
blackbear – “do re mi”
Lyric: (Do, re, mi, fa, so f—ing done with you…)
Lady Gaga – “Perfect Illusion”
Lyric: (Mistaken for love, it wasn’t love…)
Miley Cyrus – “FU (feat. French Montana)”
Lyric: (I got two letters for you, one of them is F, and the other one is U…)
Now, this is a stage where we all can’t avoid. We’re sure some of us have a full playlist of sad songs that we always go to. Here are a few of our personal favorites.
Billie Eilish – “Happier Than Ever”
Lyric: (When I’m away from you, I’m happier than ever…)
Katy Perry – “The One That Got Away – Acoustic”
Lyric: (In another life, I would be your girl…)
Olivia Rodrigo – “traitor”
Lyric: (You betrayed me and I know that you’ll never feel sorry…)
4. WHAT IF…?
Of course at one point, we’ll imagine what if we can try things out again? We have all these unanswered questions and unresolved feelings. There is still so much to say to another person. If this is how you’re feeling, here are some songs that fit your mood.
Chord Overstreet – “Hold On”
Lyric: (Come back I still need you…)
FINNEAS – “Break My Heart Again”
Lyric: (Oh, it must be nice to love someone who lets you break them twice…)
gnash – “i hate u, i love u (feat. olivia o’brien)”
Lyric: (I don’t mean no harm, I just miss you on my arm…)
5. MOVED ON!
If this is you, congratulations! You’ve arrived at the final stage of heartbreak. You’re no longer angry, you no longer want them back. In fact, when you look back, you’ll just laugh at the relationship, or even at yourself. So, go book a karaoke session with your friends and have fun finally!
Justin Bieber – “Love Yourself”
Lyric: (And if you think that I’m still holdin’ on to somethin’, you should go and love yourself…)
Little Mix – “No More Sad Songs (feat. Machine Gun Kelly)”
Lyric: (For tonight, I’m going to get my mind off it…)
Taylor Swift – “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”
Lyric: (We are never ever, ever getting back together…)
