Best Breakup Songs

They say that breaking up is hard to do – and they are right. But sometimes having the right musical accompaniment can make all the difference.

Lots of songs denote the anger felt when you are heartlessly dumped (or they don’t have the decency to dump you and move on before you even know there is a problem). Rihanna did a fantastic job of mixing classy with heartfelt yet strong in Take A Bow. You’re lucky if she’s like Rihanna – Bust Your Windows (Out Your Car) by Jasmine and Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood show some girls can get physically irate when cheated on. My favorite of the anger ballads is Gives You Hell by the All American Rejects. It highlights how we feel when we are doing all right and just want the former love to know we never really needed them anyway.
