Yep, we’ve all been there. Whether it’s a high school crush that did not share with you the same hopes of getting married someday, or it’s a friends-with-benefits gone wrong — unrequited love sucks.
Nothing is great about indulging in wine and pizza (who am I kidding, it’s the best freaking part) on a Saturday night, getting fat, and watching the episode where Ross and Rachel broke up over and over again (spoiler alert).
Alas, I bring you the best selection of songs to sink into when feeling low, only to find yourself getting better and better with every track, until you realise that you’re strong, independent, and don’t need nobody.
- Feel So Low – Porcupine Tree:
It feels so good getting depressed with Porcupine Tree music playing in the background. It’s weird, but it’s true.
2. A Stone – Okkerville River:
A beautiful, broken voice, for a beautiful, broken heart.
3. Only Ones Who Know – Arctic Monkeys:
Seriously, is there something AM can’t do right?
4. Re: Stacks – Bon Iver:
I know, that should be you in their arms. How could they not see it? But there, there, it’s probably for the best (rolls eyes).
5. About Today – The National:
For the days where you have nothing to say, and The National manage to say it all for you.
6. Junk of the Heart – The Kooks:
The better version of Taylor Swift’s ‘You Belong With Me’.
On another note, this is an uplifting one — so get out of bed, and dance it off!
7. Everybody Hurts – R.E.M.:
For when you hit rock bottom one last time.
8. Somebody To Love – Queen:
Yes! You’re now ready to mingle, and looking for somebody to actually love you back!
