The Best Breakup Songs

Breakups are always hard on anyone, but sometimes music can be a huge help when trying to get over your ex. Out of the thousands of songs out there that are about breakups, there are a few that stick out, whether they make you cry even more or help you get over your ex easier, here are some of the songs that are ~perfect~ to listen to after your heart breaks in two. 

Some of the songs on the list are country songs, so in that case, there will be separate lists for country break up songs, then songs to cry to, of course, some happier songs. 

P.S. Obviously some people have different opinions on what songs work best for their breakup, but these are just some songs that helped me personally and I got other people to like them, too:)
