Music Monday: Top 10 Breakup Songs

Posted in Lifestyle By

The cruelest day you could ever break up with someone would have to be Valentine’s Day. Breaking up with someone on their birthday’s pretty harsh too, but Valentine’s Day is the absolute worst. What makes it so heartless is that on the morning of February 14, your significant other is waking up thinking, “It sure is great to be in a committed relationship on Valentine’s Day for a change!” But come February 15, you’re the one that will forever be referred to as, “That a-hole that dumped me on Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day! Who does that?!”

Well, for anyone who has been dumped on Valentine’s Day (or ever, for that matter), here’s a playlist of the Top 10 Breakup Songs and the post breakup rituals you should be doing while listening to each.

1. “Nothing Compares to You” by Sinead OConnor (I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got, above)
Post Breakup Ritual: Wearing nothing but sweats and eating diner food at odd hours — alone.
