Best Breakup Songs of All Time

Dumped or planning to dump someone? Listen to this playlist to get you through the sadz.

"Untouchable Face" Ani Difranco (1996 - America)

Nobody quite does subtle, quiet anger like Ani. If you want to politely send a "fuck you" to your ex, this is the way to do it.

Justin Timberlake - Cry Me A River

Nice try, beyotch. Cry it out, I ain't takin' you back.

Dr.Dre feat.Daz,Snoop Dogg,& Kurupt-Bitches Ain't Shit

Crude? Yes. Perfectly captures a little male angst over bitches not being able to hang on the mother fucking Compton streets? Also yes.

Phil Collins - Do You Remember



The original "Cry Me a River," all about not taking back the jerk who broke your heart in the first place.

Kelly Clarkson - Since U Been Gone

Despite not quite knowing how to spell "you," has there been any better anthem to breakups in the last decade?

Broken Bells-October

Sometimes breakups happen because of timing, plain and simple. This song is all about being in different places.

Eamon - F**k It

The title says it all, really. Perfectly sums up that feeling after a breakup.

Dire Straits - Romeo and Juliet HD

The 80's knew how to do breakup songs, man.

Taylor Dayne - Love Will Lead You Back

Every breakup song needs a vibe intro.

Alanis Morissette - You Oughta Know (Video)

One of the best, angriest songs about Canadian Dave Coulier ever. (Note to self: Do NOT breakup with Alanis Morisette for an older version of herself.)

Tegan and Sara - Call It Off [Official Music Video]

I mean, we'll never know if you/I would be something I/you would be good at, but just let this woman stare into your ever-loving soul for a minute, k?

Richard Marx - Right Here Waiting

Not quite ready to admit it's over? Let the sweet sounds of this mullet-wearing man see you right through your delusion.
