5 Classic Break-over Songs to Help Get Back Your Sense of Self & Sass

Updated: May 15

Breakups suck. We hurt. We cry. We indulge. We feel alone. And no amount of Oreos, retail therapy or daily doses of Dr. Phil help for long. But music can. It’s emotional therapy: It can comfort, soothe and find the words to describe our pain and help us heal. It can inspire and empower. During each stage of my “break-over” — a term I use to describe our journeys from hurt to healing — music was cathartic. It helped me navigate my emotional roller coaster.

I even wrote a song which helped me fulfill both a dream and ease my emotional ride...Click here to listen to my song aptly titled Boyfriend Cleanz!


K enough about my one hit wonder...Time to listen up and be inspired by these classic songs from some of my fave female vocal icons!


1. BEYONCE: Best Thing I Never Had


Fave Break-over Lyrics

“Thank you god you blew it, thank god I dodged a bullet. Turned out to be the best thing i never had.”



2. TAYLOR SWIFT: Shake It Off

Fave Break-over Lyrics

“Music in my mind sayin’ it’s gonna be alright…so shake it off!”


3. Carrie Underwood: “Before He Cheats”


Fave Break-over Lyrics

He don’t know that I dug my key into the side of his pretty little supped-up four-wheel drive. Carved my name into his leather seats…Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats… next time he cheats it won’t be on me.”


4. Kelsea Ballerini: “Love Me Like You Mean It”


Fave Break-over Lyrics

Wanna keep me, treat me like you lost it… Had my share of losers looking for a heart to break… I don’t have time to waste.”


5. Maddie & Tae: “Fly”


Fave Break-over Lyrics

“Keep on trying though the ground may shake… Just keep on reaching though the limb might break. We’ve come this far, don’t you be scared now. ‘Cause you can learn to fly on the way down.”

(Note: This song’s not about breakups, but the power of self and tenacity which is what we need when we go through one!)
