If you’re going through a breakup or just missing the one that got away several years ago, there is definitely a playlist for that. Honestly, there’s a playlist for every mood these days, and Spotify seems to have captured the market on what to listen to when you’re in a specific mood. If you’re looking to skip that, and get right to the good stuff, stream these four songs when you’re missing your ex.
Breakeven- The Script
This song is timeless. At least one of you has cried to this song after a breakup, and you won’t be the last. The scrip knew what they were doing when they released this song in the early 2000s, and they saying still rings true: “When a heart breaks it don’t breakeven.”
The One That Got Away- Katy Perry
This song is another early 2000s classic that will automatically have you thinking about your first love or that person with who you have a matching tattoo.
Good For You- Olivia Rodrgio
This song is perfect for blasting on full volume and screaming the lyrics to when you have some ill will toward a previous partner, but still wish them the best. It’s a good way to get your anger out, and might remind you a bit of Paramore which is always a good thing.
Silver Springs- Fleetwood Mac
Finally, this classic will have you screaming and crying for good reason as you belt out Stevie Nick’s iconic lyrics about lost love.
