Top 50 Breakup Songs of All Time – Billboard


Breaking up is hard. When a relationship ends painfully, however, there’s a silver lining – you can enjoy breakup songs in ways you may not have before.

It’s true: Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, and Alanis Morissette hit differently once you’ve actually walked through the tender scenarios they so poignantly portray in their lyrics. Maybe you too, an ex clung to your old scarf because it smelled like you, even after calling you back just to break you as a promise. Or, maybe you had to watch your partner leave you for the older blonde girl he previously told you not to worry about, perhaps right before you passed your driver’s license test.

Or heaven forbid, maybe you’ve even been dumped by someone you had an intimate moment with at the theater, à la “You Oughta Know” (which is absolutely, without a doubt, 1000% on this list). Hey, Billboard do not judge.

But just like not all breakups are sad, neither are all breakup songs. Just ask Lizzo, whose self-respect, leaving it behind, and booty-shaking bangers will turn heartbroken listeners into happily singles ready to mingle. Otherwise, let Beyoncé’s discography remind you how much you’re worth. Or better yet, take a cue from Ariana Grande and just say to your ex, “Thank you, next one.”

Whether you’re angry, relieved, wallowing in grief, or happily moving on from your last breakup, allow BillboardThe 50 favorite breakup songs to help you get through the consequences.
