13 Break Up Songs for the Road

love-04I started writing this post with the intention of it being a simple listicle entitled “The 10 Best Breakup Songs Of All Time”. It’s not that simple though, just like a breakup isn’t. I started thinking of what songs to include, and tried to categorize them into lists like “Revenge Songs”, “Sad Songs”, “I’m Awesome, So F You Songs”, and so on, but again – it’s just not that simple. Break ups involve so many different feelings – shock, sadness, loss, anger, empowerment, acceptance… Point being, it’s complicated – something these artists know all too well, and a list of 13 songs seems just about right!

September Gurls – Big Star

Lost Cause – Beck

Lying Eyes – The Eagles

You’re No Good – Linda Rondstadt

You Oughta Know – Alanis Morrisette

Nothing Compares 2 U  – Sinead O’Connor

River – Joni Mitchell

It’s Too Late – Carole King

Walk On By – Dionne Warwick

It Ain’t Me Babe – Johnny Cash

Ex Factor – Lauryn Hill

Go Your Own Way – Fleetwood Mac (just consider them a go-to for any and all romantic drama)

Fuck You – Ceelo Green
