This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at C Mich chapter.

There’s no guaranteed way to get over a break up, a broken heart, or an unrequited love. However, there are some songs that just might ease the pain a little more, whether you’re shamelessly jamming by yourself in the car, or with the girls for a night out. Here are 20 songs from different genres, for many different heartaches, and lyrics to point you in the right direction! Burning the following songs onto a CD with a side of donuts is sure to brighten your day, just ask Natalie Portman.

  1. Potential Break Up Song- Aly & A.J.
    • The type of guy who doesn’t see
      What he has until she leaves

      Wise up now or pay the cost
      Soon you will know

  1. Mind Your Manners- Chiddy Bang
    • Manners, take a second look and you’ll see
      There is no one like me
      There is no one like me
      Manners, you better reconsider
      Cause you will never do better
  2. Everything I’m Not- The Veronicas
    • Now wait a minute
      Because of you

      Cause this is my life
  3. Begging on your Knees- Victoria Justice
    • So watch your back cause you don’t know when or where I can get you

  4. Undo It- Carrie Underwood
    • Now your photos don’t have a picture frame

  5. Troublemaker- Olly Murs ft. Flo Rider

      I swear you’re giving me a heart attack
  6. I Knew You Were Trouble- Taylor Swift
    • Now I heard you moved on from whispers on the street
      A new notch in your belt is all I’ll ever be

      He was long gone when he met me
      And I realize the joke is on me
  7. Bulletproof- La Roux
    • I’m burning bridges shore to shore
      I break away from something more
      I’m not turned off to love until it’s cheap

      I’m having fun, don’t put me down
      I’ll never let you sweep me off my feet
  8. Every time You Lie- Demi Lovato
    • I woke up the next morning
      With a smile on my face
      And a long list of gentlemen
      Happy to take your place

      Then who you prove to be
      How long’s it gonna take before
      You see that she’s no me
  9. What the Hell- Avril Lavigne
    • So what if I go out on a million dates?
