If you hear the word breakup, what comes first into your mind?
Is it the pain after the breakup? Or is it the people involved in a breakup?
It’s usually both, right? There are also the memories of being together, as well as the memories of being apart – both of which are told in songs.
And you know what? These will give you a story that will forever mark other people’s hearts, just like that of Smashing Pumpkins Today cover.
That being said, here are some awesome breakup songs of today’s generation:
Back To December By Taylor Swift
Released back in 2010 on Taylor Swift’s Speak Now album, Back to December is probably the most awesome breakup song of today’s generation. It doesn’t just make one realize what has been lost, but also make one realize what has been gained. It doesn’t just make one realize the value of a person, but also the value of one’s self. Most of all, it’s not just about what happened between Taylor Swift and then-boyfriend Taylor Lautner. It’s also about what will happen if you let pride get the best of you – a life without that person who has always been there for you.
The Scientist By Coldplay
Released back in 2002 on Coldplay’s A Rush of Blood to the Head album, Scientist is probably the most remarkable breakup song of today’s generation. It doesn’t just make one learn more about the complexities of being in a relationship, but also make one learn about the complexities of relationships itself. It doesn’t just make one learn more about the value of relationships, but also the value of people. Even more so, it represents a deeper meaning to scientists who get caught up in their work. It’s also about not taking for granted what’s already there in front of you – even if some things in life get better.
