10 Best Break Up Songs 2009
Even though 2009 is long and gone, the list of the 10 best break up songs of 2009 is still completely monumental. Even though breaking up is filled with anger stress, and sadness these are some of the best songs that are fit for getting you through the hard times and on to new love.
- “Gives You Hell” by the All-American Rejects is filled with the obvious angst and energy that comes along with any bad break-up. It’s also got a taste of subtle revenge that usually accompanies a catastrophic breakup.
- Pink’s “Please Don’t Leave Me” was nothing short of a very descriptive and emotional break up song. Her expressive and emotional lyrics made this hit one of the best break up songs of 2009.
- So, “My Life Would Suck Without You” by Kelly Clarkson isn’t about a specific break up, but it’s actually about a person that keeps coming in and out of Clarkson’s life. With its quirky lyrics and catchy chorus line, “My Life Would Suck Without You” belongs nowhere else other than this list of the best break up songs of 2009.
- In “Rehab” by Rihanna, you learn that Rihanna is checking into a unique kind of rehab; one that is to help her come clean of her troubled love. Having a love rehab around would be nice, but until then, you’ll have to settle for listening to this sad tune about a dysfunctional romance.
- Kanye West’s “Heartless” is definitely an uncommon number compared to more of West’s music. In “Heartless,” West describes a painful break up and all of the motions that come with bad break ups.
- Passion and hurt is definitely felt in Jesse McCartney’s “It’s Over” and it all seems too real. Of all break up songs, you may want to give this one a listen if you’re deciding to close the door on that significant other.
- If you’re getting the feeling that you made the wrong decision to break up, you might want to listen to Kelly Clarkson’s “Already Gone.” Kelly illustrates that even though she’s having doubts, moving on is the strongest and best choice.
- If it’s been awhile since you’ve seen your beloved ex, Jesse McCartney can probably relate to you through his song “How Do You Sleep?” Because of the song’s meaning and delivery, it’s probably one of the greatest break up songs to ever debut in 2009.
- “Zero” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is one of the more angst ridden break up songs of 2009. In this song, Karen O. deliberately calls a former significant other a zero repeatedly. If you’ve got left over anguish from your recent break up, you could probably find solace in this song.
