The matters of the heart are always difficult to deal with, but it wants what it wants and sometimes the heart just wants to feel. There are different ways to handle a breakup, depending on the situation, of course. Whether you’re wallowing in tears or finally happy to let of the jerk, music makes it all better. Libas Now picked some of the best breakup songs of the decade that are fit for every type of split. So, either have a tissue box with you or a parting gift and some ice cream and just sing your feelings away.
– Sun Raha Hai Na Tu (Aashiqui 2 2013)
If breakups could be defined in one song, this song would top the list. Ankit Tiwari’s vocals for the song has been a perfect match. The song talks about love being a good thing and a bad. Furthermore, it says that what you choose to take along from this on your journey is what matters the most.
– The Breakup Song (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil 2016)
How could we not mention the most popular breakup song from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil? It is probably the most upbeat breakup song in the history of breakup songs. We wish all our splits were as smooth and happy as this number by Pritam.
– Agar Tum Saath Ho (Tamasha 2015)
A song that will hit you right in the feels, especially if you are dealing with a heartbreak. Not only that, with Arijit Singh and Alka Yagnik’s vocals combined with the piano melody and A R Rahman’s composed beats, this song, without a doubt, floods you with emotions and some tears here and there.
– Channa Mereya (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil 2016)
The king of heartbreaks, Arijit Singh, makes it to the list again with Channa Mereya; a song every heartbroken has heard on repeat ever since it released. From the lyrics to Ranbir Kapoor’s acting, there is no arguing that this has got to be the saddest breakup song there is. Grab yourself a tissue box before you hit play above.
– Tujhe Bhula Diya (Anjana Anjani 2010)
Another song that will make you cry your heart out. A song that leaves a mark on your heart and mind and you can’t seem to get it out of your head. It’s been a decade since the song came out, but every time you experience heartbreak, this song will always be one of the many you listen to.
– Teri Meri Prem Kahani (Bodyguard 2011)
Are you even going through a breakup if you haven’t heard this song from Salman Khan’s movie Bodyguard? The “adhuri prem kahani” is the reason this is a must-listen for the broken-hearted. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Shreya Ghosal’s beautiful vocals add to the pain; so be prepared when you hit play.
– Kabira (Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani 2013)
Amitabh Bhattacharya’s lyrics talk to you and hit you hard. Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor bring life to the words through their performances. With that being said, when you listen to the song it makes you realise that no matter how bad things are right now, they do get better. Nothing stays forever.
– Mora Piya (Rajneeti 2010)
This melody from Rajneeti can either be the perfect song for love or heartbreak. It pulls heart-strings as no other song could. Aadesh Srivastav’s vocals on this one will make cold-hearted people cry as well.
– Bin Tere (I Hate Luv Storys 2010)
Imran Khan in I Hate Luv Storys is almost everyone afraid of commitment. But then once in your life, you do fall in love and experience heartbreak, because what is life otherwise. Everything and anything we love has the power to break your heart. This song tells you that even though a breakup can leave you incomplete, don’t lose hope Things get better.
⁃ Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin (Agneepath 2011)
Sonu Nigam’s soulful voice makes you experience the heartbreak all over again. It is one of the many songs that leave us to survive the pain. It puts the anguish one feels so perfectly when there is only heartbreak all around.
