Music·Posted on 21 Jul 2022I Made A Post Breakup Playlist So You Wouldn't Have ToThis playlist has at least one song for every stage of grief!by Ritu ChandiramaniBuzzFeed ContributorFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. "The Scientist" by Coldplay View this video on YouTube WMG | Coldplay This was the first song I listened to after my break-up and, "Nobody said it was easy, no one ever said it would be this hard'", was just stuck in my head for weeks. 2. "Kabira" from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani View this video on YouTube T-Series The song that helps you ugly-cry, especially if you watch the video and love the film as much as I do. "Right person, wrong time" is real, friends. 3. "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol View this video on YouTube UMG This song feels like a pure, well-written love letter, and is perfect for when you're sitting there, still crying, and hoping things worked out. 4. "Aaoge Jab Tum" from Jab We Met View this video on YouTube T Series This song is for when you don't feel like your usual self, simply waiting for things to get better, wishing that, that one person could fix things. 5. "Stay" by Rihanna ft. Mikky Ekko View this video on YouTube Sony Music Publishing Right after the break-up, when you can’t figure out why your relationship ended, this song really hits. Especially if you’re singing it in the shower. You turn into Rihanna for just a bit. 6. "Sach Keh Raha Hai" from Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein View this video on YouTube Saregama India Limited "Maine har lamha, jisse chaha, jisse pooja, ussi ne yaaro mera dil toda", is true pain and is best sung during a long drive. 7. "Memories" by Maroon 5 View this video on YouTube UMG This is for when you get to the stage wherein you’re nostalgic all the time and everything reminds you of them. 8. "Channa Mereya" from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil View this video on YouTube Sony Music India Haven’t we all cried to this one even when we weren’t going through a break-up? 9. "Tanhayee" from Dil Chahta Hai View this video on YouTube T-Series NGL, I didn’t understand "Tanhayee" when I first heard it as a kid, but when you're heartbroken and feel like nobody understands your pain, that’s when this song actually works. 10. "Someone Like You" by Adele View this video on YouTube Beggars / XL Recording This is for when you’re done crying and realise that you’ll get through this. Also, belting out an Adele song is always cathartic. 11. "Love Yourself" by Justin Bieber View this video on YouTube Def Jam Recordings This works when you start seeing all the red flags you’d been ignoring for so long. 12. "Somebody That I Used To Know" by Gotye feat. Kimbra View this video on YouTube The Orchard Music Because...well, now they’re just somebody that you used to know. Or is that too soon? 13. "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson View this video on YouTube SME For when you realise that you'd now get more time to hang out with your friends and actually focus on things other than that one person. 14. "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" by Kelly Clarkson View this video on YouTube WMG / SME When you want to feel like a boss and dance around the room because you didn't let this heartbreak get the best of you. 15. "Chor Bazari" from Love Aaj Kal (2009) View this video on YouTube Eros Now Music The song that you don't realise is a break-up song until you actually pay attention to the lyrics. Also, it really makes you want to dance, doesn't it? 16. "Shake It Off" by Taylor Swift View this video on YouTube UMG When you're still shaking off the bad vibes and trying to feel like yourself — because it's gonna be alright. 17. "thank u, next" by Ariana Grande View this video on YouTube CMRRA For when you're finally ready to move on because you deserve SO much better! 18. And finally, "The Breakup Song" from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil View this video on YouTube Sony Music Entertainment India Pvt. Ltd. This is the fun break-up song you need when you're looking back at all the pain you've managed to get through.
