While going through a breakup, do you take advice from your virtual mothers too? Lorelai Gilmore told us to wallow. Eleanor Waldorf told us that it’s okay to be weak in order to grow stronger. It’s true that you must feel your emotions in order to heal. But you’ve wallowed enough. You’ve sunk in gloom for too long. Now, you don’t just want to swim back to the surface, but you want to go afloat! We’ve got your back for this. Here is a whole playlist that will help you soar and go afloat!
Ye Kya Hua – Kishore Kumar
Good old Kishore Kumar to the rescue, always. If you think this song from Amar Prem is too old for your taste, the lyrics would suggest otherwise. This song is the perfect aid to all the overthinking and overanalysing that you experience after a breakup, as we all do.
“What happened, when did it happen, how and why did it happen? Whatever happened, it happened, leave it, let’s not think about it.” Nothing can be more comforting than Kishore Kumar telling us this.
Happily Never After – The Pussycat Dolls
The most soothing song of all, this one inspires us to choose ourselves and our happiness. It’s no good to stay in unhappy relationships and to stay in denial about it.
“That just ain’t for because finally, I know I deserve better, after all, I’ll never let another teardrop fall.” Another lesson from this song is to never waste your tears and expensive mascara on someone who doesn't deserve it.
Miss Movin On – Fifth Harmony
The synonym for this song is to rebuild. Gone are the days when you allowed people to walk all over you. After surviving this breakup, you’ve realised you’re far stronger than you know. It’s time to walk with confidence and put your best foot forward.
“It killed me but I survived and now I’m coming alive.” It’s time to conquer the world with your newfound courage.
Since U Been Gone – Kelly Clarkson
Kelly Clarkson sings and screams about her newfound freedom in this song! Remember, in 3 idiots, when Pia (Kareena Kapoor Khan) breaks up with her materialistic boyfriend, Rancho (Aamir Khan) wishes her Happy Independence Day? Well, the same way Clarkson is celebrating her Independence Day since her boyfriend is out of the picture. You are welcome to dance at your independence too along with the singer.
“Since you’ve been gone, I can breathe for the first time. I’m so moving on.” Moving on never looked so happy and inspiring.
Shoutout To My Ex – Little Mix
Your breakup might’ve cost you a haircut and a few tattoos, but finally, you've become closer to yourself than ever before. It has also shaped you into a more fierce person and your spirit is invincible now. This song talks about not just moving on but moving up too. Ascending to a higher level, physically, mentally and spiritually.
The trending reel on Instagram, “I was the girl he didn’t want so I became the girl he couldn’t have” is the perfect definition of this song.
“I’m all the way up, I swear you’ll never bring me down.” The only time we’re thankful for an ex is when we glow up from the misery they put us through.
So What – P!nk
P!nk tells us that a breakup should not change who you are. You’re still beautiful and confident, no matter who walks in or out of your life. “So what? I’m still a rockstar, I got my rock moves.” Exactly! Remind yourself of all your accomplishments if the breakup starts affecting your confidence.
I Forgot That You Existed – Taylor Swift
“It isn’t love, it isn’t hate. It’s just indifference.” Can there be anything more empowering than knowing you genuinely do not care about your ex anymore? No hate, no love. Just plain apathy. That’s when you know you’re about to go afloat. Congratulations!
Apun Jaise – Munnabhai MBBS
Last but not the least, the perfect breakup anthem of every Bollywood lover. Munna Bhai not only made his fellow patient smile in this one, but also gave him hope that a breakup is not the end of life. He also gave us hope by telling us that today you’re in pain and that’s okay.
