Top 10 Break Up Songs

Here is my list of the best breakup songs.  I don’t mean the sad lovey dovey type songs like Toni Braxton’s “Unbreak My Heart” or ‘N Sync’s “Gone” no I am talking about the songs that say “THANK YOU for getting out of my life” or “Oh yeah I’m doing so much better now that you’re gone” type songs.

10. We Are Never Getting Back Together – Taylor Swift

9. You Keep Me Hangin’ On – The Supremes

8. Don’t Want You Back – Backstreet Boys

7. You Oughta Know – Alanis Morissette

6. The Sign – Ace of Base

5. It’s Not Right But it’s ok – Whitney Houston

4. Ain’t Worth The Whiskey – Cole Swindell

3. Cry Me a River – Justin Timberlake

2. You’ll Think of Me – Keith Urban

1. I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor

    Number one is my favorite! I remember in elementary school, one of my teachers played us that song on YouTube. The music video was a dancing alien, though. It was so funny but it also got us awake and excited. We needed the push because it was SAT time too. I only know three songs from the list you posted. I guess it’s because of how young I am.

    I always like to listen to songs by the band Air whenever I’m down. Albums like Moon Safari, Talkie Walkie, 10000hz Legend and, Pocket Symphony are all really good. Love the songs La Femme D’argent, Napalm Love, Mer Du Japon, Space Make, Caramel Prisoner, Radian, Radio #1, Cherry Blossom Girl, Surfing on a Rocket, Alone in Kyoto, Don’t Be Light, and Sex Born Poison. Yeah I know, long list, but I just like their stuff a lot. Definitely worth a listen 😉

    There are some OK songs here, some I really love and others I really don’t like. I’m glad you chose the Justin Timberlake one as that is a fantastic song IMO, and that is a really cool and upbeat song. The Taylor Swift one is just pathetic, really annoying and boring. It does get on my nerves. Another one I like from the list is the Backstreet Boys one. I really love the Backstreet Boys and that song is one of my favorites by them.
