1. The one where the argument escalated and things had to be thrown...

Bebe Rexha isn't afraid of showing her crazy side from time to time. And for that we salute her! This is the perfect tune for those times it seemed perfectly justifiable to cut the knees out of all of his jeans....

2. The one where you realized you were dating a truly terrible human being....

It was all going so well! Until one day you're innocently sipping your latte and he tells you he thinks ethnic minorities are ruining the country and he just doesn't "get" feminism...

Sometimes the situation calls for a "F**k you! F**k you very very much!" Thanks for this little diamond Lily!

Now, where's the chocolate?

3. The one where he's a bit too nice and you feel guilty all the time...

He makes you breakfast in bed, surprises you with dinner, presents and your parents love him...but your heart knows it's not right.

The depressing truth sinks and you find yourself asking yourself what happened in your life that has damaged you enough to NOT want a man like this?

Alas, Marina's "I'm a Ruin"is the perfect song for this very occasion. It was probably all for the best anyway!

4. The one where his family and/or friends were just too awful to deal with for any length of time...

His Dad was a little creepy and his friends spent most of their time rating all of your mates out of 10...

Basically the very thought of having them in your life for any length of time made you want to shave your eyeballs. He had to go.

This is the ideal "Breaking Up" tune gives you something to dance about at least! Thanks Charlie!

5. When he forgot your Birthday....

And dinner plans... And your middle name.... And your last name too...

Basically your no longer his number 1, 3 or even in the top 10. It had to stop really, I mean presents are important after all!

Dawn Penn's reggae tune will help cheer you up and feel very cool in the process.

*probably not as cool as this guys face.

6. When the honeymoon phase was over and so was the chemistry....

There's nothing worse than the moment your man starts to feel like your brother. Tumbleweed drifts lazily across the restaurant table and you're go-to date is the cinema just to avoid the awkward pauses....

But hey, at least you're not alone! Bat For Lashes has been there too, and created a marvelous tune for the situation.

7. When he was a cheating, lying scrub....

This truly sucks...but nothing helps more that sweet, glorious revenge! Jazmine Sullivan got hers and hell certainly has no fury like a bad-ass lady busting up some windows!

Fantastic tune to help you hatch your pay-back plan...

8. When it turned out he was gay...

This is a tough one...Yes it was a bit of a blow to your self esteem and you now bleach your facial hair way more than is necessary, but you probably got a great friend out of it (which is more than can be said for most break-ups!).

Looks like Katy Perry may have been stung with this one in the past with "Your'e so Gay"...Great little track to re-live the memories.

This tune is probably one of the best songs to help you through those moments when you just want to drown in Ben & Jerry's.

Not an easy one to forget, but Fleetwood Mac are here to help!

10. When Beyonce is your sister and no man is ever good enough...

Fair enough, this one is probably a little niche. But it's a great tune all the same!

Solange Knowles and her record "Some Things Never Seem To F**king Work" reflects the frustration of breakups we all know too well.

Sometimes even the mightiest of stars have trouble finding a man. You're certianly not a lone, and our ears have never been happier!

11. Press play to begin the memories!
