Songs about breaking up and getting back together have been around since man discovered music and the art of singing.
In fact, I would be willing to guess there have more heartbreak songs written than just about any other type of song. Breaking up brings up very strong emotions and have inspired many emotionally powerful songs.
Songs about getting back together, or the hope of getting back together, have also been very popular.
Love songs have helped many get through the hurt of breaking up. Some breakup songs help you to realize that although what you are going through a tough time, you are not the first person to go through it, and remind you that you will survive.
Some breakup songs portray more of an angry, “hey you are the loser in this breakup” type of approach.
Get back together songs are generally more about “how much I love you”, and how good it feels to be with you.
Are there songs that have helped you through a hurtful break up, or a song that has given you strength and hope for the future?
