If you just got dumped and you are feeling blue, there are many who have felt just like you. Some of the greatest bands have put these sentiments to song. Here are my top 10 heartbroken songs.
1.) Heartbreaker by Led Zeplin. With lyrics like “Here I am alone and blue/Some people cry and some people die/By the wicked ways of love” how could this NOT be one of the best heartbroken songs around?
2.) Could’ve Been by Tiffany. The song starts off “The flowers you gave me/are just about to die / when I think about / what could’ve been / it makes me want to cry” And gets sappier from there. One of the great heartbroken songs.
3.) How Can you Mend a Broken Heart by the Bee Gees. The chorus sums up the classic heartbreak song, “And how can you mend a broken heart? / How can you stop the rain from falling down? / How can you stop the sun from shining? / What makes the world go round? / How can you mend a this broken man?”
4.) You’re Breaking My Heart, You’re Tearing It Apart by Nillson. Perhaps one of the crasser heartbroken songs, this one has lyrics that say, “You won’t boogaloo/Run down to Tramps, have a dance or two, ooohhh/You’re breakin’ my heart, / You’re tearing it apart but f*** you
5.) Behind These Hazel Eyes by Kelly Clarkson. You can’t help but feel the heartache expressed in the chorus: “Here I am, once again / I’m torn into pieces / Can’t deny it, can’t pretend / Just thought you were the one / Broken up, deep inside / But you won’t get to see the tears I cry / Behind these hazel eyes
6.) My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion. Not only are the words to this song full of heartbreak, Dion’s vocals convey the sentiment. The lyrics include: “Love was when I loved you / One true time I hold to / In my life we’ll always go on”
7.) Don’t Cry by Guns ‘n Roses. Perhaps the classic break up song was sung by Axl Rose and the gang. “Give me a whisper / And give me a sigh / Give me a kiss before you tell me goodbye / Don’t you take it so hard now / And please don’t take it so bad / I’ll still be thinkin’ of you / And the times we had…baby”
8.) Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac. A surprisingly peppy song for such a sad topic. “You can go your own way / Go your own way / You an call it / Another lonely day / You can go your own way / Go your own way”
9.) Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxon. Heartbroken songs can’t be summed up much better than the title of this Braxon tune. “Don’t leave me in all this pain / Don’t leave me out in the rain / Come back and bring back my smile / Come and take these tears away
10.) Love Song by The Cure “However far away I will always love you / However long I stay I will always love you / Whatever words I say I will always love you / I will always
love you” Whatever else happens, once you’ve been in love, there is a part of you that will always belong to your ex.
And those are my top 10 heartbroken songs.
