16 Songs That Will Get You Out Of Your Post Breakup Slump

Breaking up is hard to do – literally. Dealing with that kind of stress can really take its toll but it’s really all about how you handle it. Personally, I have two playlists on my iPod dedicated to breakups: my “Let’s Cry About It” playlist and my “Angry Bitch” playlist.

I prefer the Angry Bitch playlist. It’s filled with songs that pump me up about being single and make me realize how truly better off I am without that a-hole. Here’s what I’ve got:

  1. So What – P!nk

Best line: “I don’t need you and guess what, I’m having more fun and now that we’re done, I’m gonna show you tonight I’m alright, I’m just fine and you’re a tool”

  1. It’s A Beautiful Day – Michael Bublé

Best line(s): “If you ever change your mind, don’t hold your breath”/ “Even if it started raining, you won’t hear this boy complaining, ‘cuz I’m glad that you’re the one who got away”


  1. Almost – Bowling For Soup

Best line: “I almost forgot to say something else and if I can’t fit it in I’ll keep it all to myself, I almost wrote a song about you today, but I tore it all up and then I threw it away”

  1. You’re Such A – Hailee Steinfeld

Best line: “You can take your lies to your next girlfriend cuz I don’t wanna hear it anymore, and if you’re all that’s left when the whole world ends, no I still don’t wanna hear it anymore”

  1. Blow Me (One Last Kiss) – P!nk

Best line (s): “Tie a knot in the rope, trying to hold but there’s nothing to grab so I let go”/ “I think I’ve finally had enough, I think I maybe think too much, I think this might be it for us, so blow me one last kiss”

  1. Ugly Heart – GRL

Best line: “I wonder does it blow your mind that I’m leaving you far behind, and I wonder does it stop your heart to know you’re not my sunshine anymore”

7. I Don’t F*** With You – Big Sean

Best line: “I’ve got a million trillion things that I’d rather f***in do, than to be f***in with you… I don’t give a f*** about you or anything that you do.”

  1. Just A Memory – Train

Best line: “Come back, come back high or low, before you’re just a girl I used to know, and who will melt with me, when I am who you used to love and you are just a memory”

  1. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together – Taylor Swift

Best line: “We are never ever ever getting back together”

  1. Tonight I’m Getting Over You – Carly Rae Jepsen

Best line: “I wanna touch your heart, I wanna crush it in my hands, make you plead and cry as you give up all the lies”

  1. Thinking of You – Ke$ha

Best line: “Sorry I can’t hear you and I got plans, you won’t get me naked, you had your chance”

  1. You Already Know – Train

Best line(s): “This bipolar love affair just ain’t where it’s at for me anymore so don’t let the door hit you when you leave”/ “you throw me in the fire just to save my life, a pretty little liar when I call you out you’d rather put up a fight, than just come clean”/ “Get on your way making someone else feel low then higher than they ever thought they could go, you already know”

13. Vacation – Simple Plan

Best line: “Can’t you just go somewhere on vacation? I could book your flight and pack your bags if you want, a one way ticket out of my life, watching you fly away, I never liked you”

14. Beating Me Up – Rachel Platten

Best line: “It’s getting louder (louder), every time I think about you (about you), I’ll be better off without you (without you), I wish my heart would stop (I wish my heart would stop) beating me up”

15. FU – Miley Cyrus

Best line: “I’ve got two, ooh ooh letters for you, one of them is F and the other one’s U, cause what you gotta do is go get yourself a clue”

16. Sometime Around Midnight – The Airborne Toxic Event

Best line: “And the band plays some song about forgetting yourself for a while, and the piano’s this melancholy soundtrack to her smile”

Don’t intentionally make yourself sad or dwell on it. Get mad, pump yourself up, and you’ll come out of this better than you expected. Happy breakup!
