You knew that it was going to end one way or the other. Whether you were the one who called it off or not, it’s already done. It’s finally over. It hurts, I know, but you have to hold your head high and go through the process of moving on because life goes on. It may take some time, but don’t worry because you’ll get there.
To help you get through this ordeal, here are some of the best kiss-off songs of all time:
Someone Like You by Adele
Nothing feels good than releasing your built-up tears after a breakup. Someone Like You is a great song that can help you give free rein to your tears. The song is about a breakup and how Adele was able to come to terms with it. It’s obviously a pretty sad song, but we can’t deny that it’s a beautiful piece. One reviewer was even quoted saying that the song is “an actual thing of beauty.”
Un-Break My Heart by Toni Braxton
If you’ve ever felt like going back to your ex and asking to rekindle the relationship, then this song perfectly captures that idea. The song is about someone who pleads a former flame to return and take away the pain that was caused by their breakup. Without a doubt, this is Braxton’s greatest hit and became her signature song that made her famous worldwide.
I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston
While the song was originally written and recorded by singer-songwriter Dolly Parton, perhaps it was Whitney Houston’s rendition that most people are familiar with. The song portrays a breakup between two lovers who clearly parted ways on good terms, mostly thanks to the woman’s efforts. There is something heartbreaking about how great and undying love is still not enough to make a relationship work.
Don’t Speak by No Doubt
When you’re in a relationship, one of the things that you really don’t want to hear is these four words: “We need to talk.” You may feel your insides churn, your stomach hurt, your chest tightens, and your pulse quicken. At that moment, you will most likely feel like you want to run away and never come back. Don’t Speak is the perfect representation of those feelings.
Forget You by CeeLo Green
At this point, you’ve probably cried rivers of tears. It’s perfectly natural. What comes next after that is the feeling of anger and bitterness. Instead of letting it build up, you can choose to express your rage by singing along with CeeLo Green’s pop hit Forget You. The song expresses how it’s better to move on and find someone more deserving.
Sorry by Beyonce
Hell has no fury like a woman scorned. Anyone who has seen the music video or even just heard the song would definitely say that Beyonce is indeed furious as hell. The song is practically screaming “I don’t care. I’m not thinking about you” and was directed towards her husband Jay-Z. So, ladies, don’t be afraid to put your hands up in the air and tell your ex what you truly think.
It Must Have Been Love by Roxette
After you’ve wiped your tears and expressed your anger, it’s finally time to start the process of truly moving on. Before you do that, try to look back on the good times because admit it, it wasn’t all bad memories. Acknowledging the good times is also part of moving on. And no other song can perfectly capture that feeling than Roxette’s It Must Have Been Love.
These are just 7 of the best kiss-off songs of all time. Now, listening to these songs may not bring back your lover or fully erase the pain that you are feeling now, but they will certainly help you feel good as you try to heal your broken heart. After all, nothing is more empowering and therapeutic than good music.
