Top 5 break-up songs

‘I Will Survive’ – Gloria Gaynor
Here’s perhaps the best break up song of all time; anyone who has been dumped and then had their lover return to them after months are bound to connect with this classic break-up song! It’s one of the most popular songs and almost everyone has heard it and found it to be extremely precise and on the dot. “I should have changed that stupid lock/ I should have made you leave your key/If I had known for just one second/you’d be back to bother me” are only some of the extremely hilarious lyrics from this brilliantly crafted song. Not only will this song make the listener laugh, but it will also pump them enough to act out the lyrics, by acting tough and telling the loser to get the hell out: “Go on now go/walk out the door/ just turn around now/ ‘cause you’re not welcome anymore” Why this song stands out: Because it’s not simply a song humiliating the ex-lover, but it’s a song teaching the victim to be strong, and to stand up on their feet.(READ MORE ARTICLES)

‘So What’ – Pink
The fact that the song is by Pink should speak volumes about the kind of break-up song this might be. Pink is edgy, rebellious and pretty darn straightforward. Therefore when she sings about her break-up, she makes sure that she is partying it up and having an amazing time now that she’s finally free. “So what, I’m still a rock star/I got my rock moves and I don’t need you/And guess what, I’m havin’ more fun /And now that we’re done I’m gonna show you tonight/I’m alright, I’m just fine and you’re a fool”
However, she does get her 15 seconds of self pity and grief, where she does sing about how she did everything she could have for the dude, but then quickly she resumes back to her ‘so what?’ attitude. Why this song stands out: Because she is trying to get over the grief by having a good time, and even though it still hurts her a bit, she realizes the need to wipe her tears, and quickly move on.(READ MORE ARTICLES)
‘Tere Pyaar Mein’ – Kaavish
Here’s a song for those who perhaps like more than 15 seconds of self pity. While it’s an incredible melody, sung beautifully by Jaffer Zaidi, it is also perhaps everyone’s favourite break up song because even though we all like to act tough, the truth is, at that moment, one just wants to feel sorry for themselves. Therefore people are more likely to listen to songs, which are particularly sad, something they can honestly relate to. ‘Tere Pyaar Mein’ is about a man who is clearly devastated at his loss, and can’t believe it’s all over, after all the things he did for the relationship. “Teri yaadein/ woh saari baatein/tu he bata kaisey bula doon/ kise kahoon aye bewaafa /dil kis tarah toota mera” Even though it’s not highly recommended you listen to this song too much if you’re suffering from heartbreak, (it’s bound to bring some tears) But the song itself is very beautiful to listen to and definitely everyone’s favourite guilty pleasure. Why this song stands out: Jaffer Zaidi touches the right chords with his soulful vocals. You would want to listen to it even if you haven’t broken up!(READ MORE ARTICLES)
‘Everybody Knows’ – John Legend
Finally! A realistic and sensible song about how to react after you’ve just broken up. John Legend perhaps says something which nobody has ever said: “ And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy/ I still can’t believe you found somebody new/ but I wish you the best, I guess.” Is he actually saying something nice to the person who left him?! That’s why this song is in this list. ‘Everybody Knows’ is about the man being reasonable as he sings about how he should have gotten a second chance, because relationships aren’t easy for anyone, and have to be worked upon. Nobody knows what the secret is to having everything perfect, but sometimes you just have to live with the fact that no relationship is perfect. He eventually ends on a good note, wishing her the best with her future. Why this song stands out: For the first time we hear someone being sensible after breaking up!(READ MORE ARTICLES)
‘Chor Bazari’ – Love Aaj Kal
Last but not the least: here’s to breaking up Bollywood ishtyle! This is perhaps the most unusual break up song because the two ex-lovers are singing ad celebrating their freedom and being happy about it. Not only are they celebrating, they are dancing! Where else does that happen other than in Bollywood, where every emotion is communicated by a song with choreographed dance moves? They are laughing about how they don’t have to worry about the other person anymore; they don’t have to do all those couple-y rituals like being insecure and complimenting each other all the time. “Taarif teri karna/Tujhe khone se darna/ Haan bhool gaya ab tujhpe/ Din mein chaar daffa marna.” It’s catchy, it’s upbeat. The content will make you laugh, and the song will make you want to get up and do some Bollywood dance moves. Why this song stands out: It’s a song about people who are actually okay after their break-up because they’ve realized that they are better off not being upset about all these random silly things! – Manal Faheem Khan
