All I keep imagining ever since Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s top staffer, said “Actually, I think I’d like to find a partner who doesn’t send pictures of his privates to other women” to former congressman, former New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner is Huma with a big ol’ glass of wine singing her heart out to Beyonce’s Lemonade. Because a time like this demands both alcohol and some singing at the top of your lungs to a great breakup playlist. Some I hate you/I love you/I’m going to get over you/As soon as I cry in the shower for the next few weeks singing at the top of your lungs.
We’ve all been there, right? You thought it was a good thing what you two had and now it’s not such a good thing. They ended it. Or you ended it because you couldn’t see any other way to resolve your issues.
A few favorites in case you find yourself like Huma at the end of your summer lovin’.
I know. Why add her to this list when I already imagined Huma listening to Lemonade right now? Well, the best heartbreak album released this decade deserves more than one mention. And yes, it’s about more than heartbreak, but never forget it’s about that too. Middle fingers (and bats) up when your heart gets smashed.
Not a fan of Taylor Swift? Think too many of her songs are break-up songs? You might be right, but the chorus of this particular break-up song is a good mantra to use when that old flame calls and you know, you *know*, you should never, ever get back together.
And during those moments when your break-up resolve is weakening or you want to leave your tenth voicemail of the night asking why you can’t give it one more try, maybe you need someone who understands. Sade will be ever so gentle with your feelings.
And if the breakup was really so bad that only expletives will do, CeeLo understands.
