The Breakup Stages Explained Through Dance Music Tracks

Posted at December 10th, 2015 | by Nikita Arora | in Dance Music, Entertainment

An ancient saying about music is that it possesses healing elements and can silent your tempers. As the world inclines towards music, the fact gets a clear shadow as to be true to a great extent. The healing powers of music are connected to psychological areas of human nature as well providing for much needed comfort. They say music is a safe place to be, I agree. Like music waves, relationships to have their waves and when one experiences a broken heart situation, music is surely a way to revive back, buck up and start afresh. People learn about themselves a lot when music touches their soul in depressed times and yes, to bounce back one has to drown himself in the music ocean. There is music for your every mood when you are going through a break-up situation; here is how to do it!


The High Intensity Stage

This stage of break is expected to last from around 1 hour to 15 days and all you will experience is crying and cribbing as to why it got over.  To feel better one can plug in “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye or “Sun and Moon” by Above and Beyond.



The ‘It is over for good’ Feel

This stage is expected to last from 15 to 31 days and can bring in a feeling of helplessness and lost hopes but as it passes by a feel good factor will come to you that whatever happens; happens for good. To reach to a comfort zone in this stage one can plug in “Fuck It (I Don’t Want You Back)” by Eamon, “Train in Vain” by the Clash, “Making plans” by Above and Beyond or “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift. As they say, this too shall pass!




The Passive Aggressive Stage

This stage is experienced from day 32 to day 45 after the break up and is slightly relaxing as to the feelings have settled down and you get used to it. You start to see good things around and make up your mind for a fresh start out of the darkness you experience. To boost up your mood, switch to “Big Girls Don’t Cry” by The 4 Seasons, “Yesterday” by The Beatles, “Since U Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson or MSTRKRFT’s “Heartbreaker”.


The Anger Burst

This stage is experienced from day 45 to day 50 where one feels the need to take revenge and get all his doubts and questions answered. This is when all the love turns to a hatred feeling and an eagerness to burst out in anger. To calm down one can play “Feed Me” by One Click Headshot, “Burn” by Usher or “Love Lockdown” by Kanye West.



The Acceptance

This stage is experienced from day 51 to day 62 when one finally settles down on the break up and explains as to things are finally over and moving on is the only ray of hope left. To buck yourself up, listen to “Disclosure” by You & Me, “Buzzin” by Overwerk, “Alone Again (Naturally)” by Gilbert O’Sullivan or “Nobody Knows” by The Tony Rich Project.


Ready To Move On

With all the mood swings and days of introspection and crying, the efforts seem to be leading to a no man’s land and one gets up and makes a way to another path, thinking this way would lead to a better world. This stage is experienced from day 63 onwards. For a brighter world picture, plug in Deorro ft. DyCy’s “Don’t Hold Me Back”, “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gayno or “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye.
