Best of Indie Break-Up Songs

Posted at September 4th, 2015 | by Kamakshi Bhat | in

Music is the home for your pain” – The Script. Great words by a great band. And quite true too. When nothing makes sense in our lives anymore, we tend to turn towards music. Because music makes us feel things, and a lot of times we just want a good cry.
 
So, if you want a good cry or just some empathy, this list is for you.

 

1. The Script- Breakeven

 


 
Did you really think after quoting them, there won’t a song by them on this list? And it doesn’t really hurt that it’s one of the classics where heartbreaks are concerned.

 

2. Daughter- Medicine

 


 
Her voice is the voice of an angel, and her song is a medicine for anyone who hears it. Beautiful soothing lyrics to make your heart feel lighter.
 

3. Birdy- Skinny Love


 
‘Skinny Love’ is defined as when two people love each other, and they know that they love each other but won’t do anything about it. So all you people with a crush out there, this one’s for you.

4. Elliot Smith- I Didn’t Understand

 


 
He was the Deal. This is a guy who sang his emotions and that too beautifully.
Thought you’d be looking for the next in line to love then ignore,
Put out and put away
And soon you’d be leaving me all alone…”

 

5. The Fray- How To Save A Life

 


 
Loosing some close to you(no matter the relation), is quite a heartbreak and this song captures the essence of that beautifully. Don’t miss out the amazing video.

 

6. The Beatles- Yesterday

 

 

The title is enough to know what a legend the song this is and songmakers this is from. The Beatles were a band of simple beautiful lyrics..
Why she had to go I don’t know
She wouldn’t say
I said something wrong
And now I long for yesterday..”
Ah, If only it was that simple, eh?
 

7. Mayday Parade- Stay

 


 
It’s one of those songs with one of those lyrics with one of those meanings.
Oh can you tell
I haven’t slept very well..
Since the last time we spoke?
You said please understand if I see you again
Don’t even say ‘hello’

Ouch.
