The Friday Five: Breakup Songs

Sometimes, there is just nothing like a good breakup song, no matter what you’re going through.  They can help vent your anger, remind you to stay positive.    Here are some of our favorite breakup songs.

1.  Brandyn Burnette – “Thanks For Nothing”
Brandyn Burnette’s new single “Thanks For Nothing” shows one way to deal with a breakup.  Be positive!  That is, be positive that the person you just broke up with is, in Lauren Conrad’s words – “a sucky person!”

2. Hunter Hayes – “More Than I Should”
Hunter is so sweet that makes us wonder who broke his heart so badly that he penned one of the angriest breakup songs we’ve ever heard.   You can feel the anger in this song from the first note to the end. The guitars come in, guns blazing, while Hunter sings “I found out the hard way, I loved you more than I should”.  We always find ourselves feeling better after listening to this track!

3. Tiffany Houghton – “The Best”
Fresh music from Tiffany Houghton, this break up song is one of our new favorites.  We can’t get over how upbeat and happy the music is while Tiffany sings about the jerk who broke her heart.  Bless his heart, she’s just wishing him the best.  HA!

4. Taylor Swift – “Picture To Burn”
Oldie but a goodie from the queen of writing the songs that are the soundtrack to our young lives.  Taylor Swift knows how sucky guys can be,  but as far as she’s concerned, they’re all just another picture to burn!  Does anyone else miss Taylor’s country days?

5. Jonas Brothers – “What Do I Mean To You”
When we first heard this song last summer on tour, we had no idea that it would be the last time we’d ever see the brothers together as a band, playing music on tour and stuff.  The chorus just punches you right in the gut – like when he said those fateful four words “we need to talk”.  By the way – Kevin/Joe/Nick, WHAT DO WE MEAN TO YOU!!?

Bonus:  78 Violet (Aly & AJ) – “Potential Breakup Song” & Jonas Brothers “Move On”
You can’t talk about breakup songs without mentioning this iconic song by Aly & AJ and it’s companion song, “Move On” by Jonas Brothers.   “Move On” was never recorded, and only performed once, at Bamboozle.  But we’re sure it felt good for Joe to get that off of his chest!  They both sure seem to have issues with their stuff.  We hope you got your stuff back.
