We’ve all been in that situation where we’ve just needed to scream our heart out to a good breakup song. So we’ve rounded up our top five breakup songs, and while there are hundreds of breakup songs out there, these five are elite.
‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’ – Taylor Swift
Iconic. Classic. Perfect. These are some of the words we think of when you bring up this song by Taylor Swift. Name a more perfect breakup song, we’ll wait. That’s right, you can’t because it’s the most iconic song of all time. So if you haven’t angrily yelled this song after a breakup, you should get on that ASAP. Make sure you stream Taylor’s Version, though!
‘Lie to Me’ -5SOS
It’s so devastating, and it’s heartbreaking, and it’s beautiful, and we love it so much.
Flashing back to New York City, changing flights so you stay with me, remember thinking that I got this right, and now I wish we never met ’cause you’re too hard to forget, while I’m cleaning up your mess I know he’s taking off your dress
‘Lie to Me’ by 5 Seconds of Summer
…Yeah this is a 10/10 breakup song and also now we’re crying. BRB.
‘Since You’ve Been Gone’ -Kelly Clarkson
Yet another perfect breakup anthem. Kelly Clarkson does not hold back with this one, and it’s the best song to yell at the top of your lungs, just FYI. This song has healing abilities, and that’s a scientific fact (we think) (maybe) (if it’s not, it should be).
‘Kiss My Uh-Oh’ – Anne-Marie & Little Mix
This is one of our favorite breakup songs. Anne-Marie and Little Mix bring such a playful twist to this song, and we love to see it! Little Mix never misses when it comes to breakup songs, with bops like ‘Shout Out to My Ex’ and ‘Hair,’ and ballads like ‘Love Me or Leave Me.’ We stan.
‘Go’ -Cat Burns ft Sam Fischer
What’s that sound? Oh, that’s just us screaming because Sam Fischer is featured on Cat Burns’s new song ‘Go’ and we are sobbing.
Yes, you heard that right, no, this is not a dream, no, we’re not okay either. Sam Fischer and Cat Burns are featured on a song together, and it’s better than anything we could’ve ever dreamed of!
This is the end of me and you so don’t call this number anymore, ’cause I won’t be there for you like I was before
‘Go’ by Cat Burns ft Sam Fischer
Sam and Cat’s voices mesh together so beautifully. It has us on the floor screaming, crying, throwing up. We are not okay. Please send help. This collab is a match made in heaven, and we are over the moon about it! You need to go listen to this absolute masterpiece of a breakup song immediately, and you can do so here.
