“Those are all good songs to break up by, but obviously, the person who wrote the above article, as well as the people commenting, are not into country music.” ~ C.

When I made my original list of songs for singles, I didn’t include country music, rap, or anything other than the run-of-the-mill rock ‘n roll and pop songs. But, that original list of break up music worked for some readers:

“Wow, it’s like you stole my mp3 player and posted the saddest songs,” said Chris. “This is a great list! My favorite would have to be Avril Lavigne’s “So Much for My Happy Ending.”

The following list of readers’ choice sad breakup songs includes music that I never would’ve considered, including country and and bands I’ve never heard of! If you want to cry your heart out because of your breakup, listen to My Happy Ending (Avril Lavigne)…and here are a few more readers’ choice songs for breaking up…

“Growing up to do” By Joshua Radin
“Violens” by Joey Cape
“Moving On” by Deals Gone Bad
“Wasted Days” by The Slackers – Joe

“These are all good songs to break up by, but obviously, the person who wrote the article about breakup songs, as well as the people commenting, are not into country music. Hank Snow’s “I Don’t Hurt Anymore” is a real good, feel good song for surviving a sad breakup, as well as his “I’m Movin’ On” and “The Golden Rocket”, both very dated train songs. Also, during the “crying in my beer” phase of a break up, there are countless older country songs for singles. Just about anything by Hank Williams, Sr., such as “Your Cheatin’ Heart”, or “I Can’t Help It If I’m Still In Love With You.” From a lady’s perspective, try Kitty Wells, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn and others. Believe me, you’ll find plenty of great break up songs no matter what phase you’re in of being newly single. It doesn’t matter so much how a song is played, just listen to the words. That’s why they call it the “blues.” – C.
