12 Best Songs to Get over Your Ex ...

My friends and I have discovered a new favourite playlist, consisting of the best songs to get over your ex. Don’t worry, we aren’t bitter (although I am writing this, alone, on Valentine’s Day – something that will never exactly breed contentment) – but we have all been through a rough time recently when it comes to the opposite sex. And so, there’s nothing better for boosting your confidence than getting ready to go out with a bottle of wine, your friends and a selection of the best songs to get over your ex bursting out as you go.

1. YOU DON’T IMPRESS ME MUCH

(Your reaction) Thank you!

‘You don’t impress me much’ by Shania Twain has to be one of the best songs to get over your ex. Remember, did he really have the touch anyway? Her ‘Man! I feel like a woman’ is good too.

Get it

2. Since YOU’VE BEEN GONE

(Your reaction) Thank you!

‘Since You’ve been gone’ by Kelly Clarkson – perfect for belting out the chorus.

Get it

3. BLOW ME ONE LAST KISS

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Pink said a while ago that, out of her, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera (they all got famous at similar times), everyone said at first that she was going to be the bad girl. She then said asked who are the troublemakers now? Pink is a great role model for young girls, and this song will have you feeling better in no time.

4. PART of ME

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Katy Perry married Russell Brand and the whole world sat and waited for the inevitable news that he’d screwed her over. And he did – apparently filing for divorce just after Christmas without her knowing about it. ‘Part of Me’ was definitely her way of telling the world that she’d be happy again.

Get it

5. NEVER, EVER, EVER

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Taylor Swift is just as famous for her long list of exes as she is for her songs – and perhaps most famous for penning tracks about her failed relationships. She might receive criticism for that, but we love her for it. Remember ‘We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together!’

Get it

6. To the LEFT, to the LEFT

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Beyonce is the undisputed queen of women power. Just stick ‘Irreplaceable’ on and dance like Beyonce. You’ll feel better in no time.

Get it

7. EGO

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Normally, The Saturdays aren’t exactly known for their girl power songs. But ‘Ego’ is perfect for the playlist – you know, when a guy breaks up with you and suddenly he starts acting like the most arrogant guy in the world? That’s what this is about.

Get it

8. SURVIVOR

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Back to Beyonce, but this time she’s got the rest of Destiny’s Child with her. And they’re all survivors!

Get it

9. YOU’RE so VAIN

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Remember ‘You’re So Vain’ by Carly Simon? For all those guys who thought they were prettier than you.

Get it

10. CRY ME out

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Cry Me Out by Pixie Lott talks about what we all secretly wish would happen – that guy we really liked realising what he’s missing, but only after its too late. That happens, right?

Get it

11. SMILE

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Lily Allen’s ‘Smile’; this is one woman we can’t imagine taking any crap from anyone.

Get it

12. BEST THING I NEVER HAD

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Finally, Beyonce gets one more track in this list – she is, after all, Queen B. Her song ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ is for women everywhere who deserve better.

Get it

I hope this list isn’t taken too seriously – obviously I realise it works both ways and men can be treated just as badly by women as vice versa. This is just a collection of songs to make us feel better when we’re feeling down; what songs do you play when you’re in need of a little girl power?
