Community·Posted on Sep 15, 2022Ranking Charli XCX Songs By How Much They Make Me Want To Break Up With My Perfectly Good PartnerAre you also an absolute nightmare to date?by Anwesha DuttaCommunity ContributorApproved and edited by BuzzFeed Community TeamFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 10. "Sorry If I Hurt You" Vroom Vroom Records This is one of her most magical songs. Regret! So much regret!!! This one doesn’t really make you want to break up with someone as much as it makes you regret having done it. We cannot change who we are as people and we cannot stop hurting others. We can only listen to a song about it over and over. 9. "Forever" Twitter / Via Twitter: @charli_xcx This is such a bittersweet song but perhaps the most clear-eyed and honest. You will not be able to hold on to every single person you love. You will watch them from afar and love them anyway. These decades-long relationships are what sustain us. Charli is a real one for this song. 8. "Backseat" Charli XCX on Twitter / Via Twitter: @charli_xcx If there’s one song I cannot be snarky about, it’s this one. It’s just dripping with the sincerity she brings to what some others call "frivolous" and the very quality that makes me love her so much. It’s embarrassing but it’s true. At the end of the day, you do only have yourself to blame – I AM better off alone. Vulnerability is cursed!!! 7. "Used To Know Me" Vroom Vroom Records Another positive, straight-forward breakup song. In reality though, it's probably Charli breaking up with her toxic-ass record label. It’s about when you are so wrapped up in someone’s love-bombing that you can’t see straight, and when you finally do, it’s ugly as shit. She’s like a flower blooming since she left them behind, ya’ll. 6. "Out of My Head" Vroom Vroom Records Tfw you willfully date people who hate you. But like, would you rather be happy or interesting? Would you rather develop healthier intimacy patterns, or relate to this banger? Exactly! Secretly, you are totally into it. 5. "Dreamer" Vroom Vroom Records/YouTube / Via youtube.com This is just a gorgeous little song about being a bad bitch. Not much break-up content in it but I wanted to include it for the golden line: “I need my exes to miss me." It’s her “got broken up with a couple times and now I’m too powerful” era. It’s an old one so it makes sense. 4. "Good Ones" Vroom Vroom Records A self-aware bop! We do always be letting the good ones go. There’s nothing more to say except: Girl! Get therapy, and fast! 3. "Blame It on U" Asylum Records This is her Doja Cat “Need to Know” moment. It’s when you break up with your very dependable partner for a hot guy you meet at the café reading Sally Rooney, who breaks your heart in the next two weeks. You uproot your life just because you’re trapped in compulsory monogamy. 2. "Hot In It" Asylum Records What can I say? This is giving peak “just broke up with Huck and I’m going clubbing” and we stan hard! You really won’t see her crying on the bathroom floor. I need Charli to make more stuff with DJs because I cannot get enough of this energy. Sorry, AG. 1. Hot Girl Charli XCX on Instagram / Via instagram.com This is, to me personally, the epitome in her canon of “too hot to date anyone” discography. You can’t not want to be desirable-but-unreachable when you listen to this. Even though, ironically, the song is produced by her current partner, we will forgive our mother for that one.So, what are you waiting for? Your unhinged era beckons to you!!!! Go ahead and break some hearts!
