Whether you were with the other person for 30 days or 30 years, breaking up is one of the hardest things to do. It’s natural to grieve the relationship, no matter what kind of relationship it was and no matter who initiated the breakup. It’s a life change, and it involves letting go of the dreams you had for the future of that relationship.

So pull out your headphones, kick back, and listen to one of these 12 songs, each representing a different musical genre and perfect for a break-up.
