It’s that wonderful time of year again. Spring is in the air and you’re in love…
…or you just went through a torturous breakup and nothing is helping you get past it.
Whether the painful split is your own or you’re racked with vicarious angst over your favorite fictional couple’s latest relationship obstacle, let us help you heal with this list of the nine weep-worthy soundtracks to purge your breakup pain.
By My Side — SG Wannabe (Descendant of the Sun)
I’m not crying. I suffer from chronic wet eye, ok?
No matter what shit went down during your breakup, this track will make you BELIEVE IN LOVE again.
In The Fall Of My Heart — Various Artists (Reply 1988)
This whole soundtrack is on-point, so just press play and spend the next hour reliving all the best and worst moments of your relationship.
NOW PUT THE PAST BEHIND YOU AND BE HEALED.
Because I — Lasse Lindh (Bubblegum)
This song is like soft angel kisses in your ear canal. Bae broke up with you, but someone better will come along and serenade you with touching metaphors about your sparkling eyes.
Sometimes — Zia (She Was Pretty)
Next time your breakup gets you down, play this track and remember that dreamboats like Park Seo-joon and Choi Siwon exist in this world, and they won’t care if you have frizzy hair and a penchant for stripes! Better yet, go ahead and stream all of SHE WAS PRETTY on our Roku app and forget your ex-lover ever existed.
You Don’t Love Me — Roy Kim (Twenty Again)
Unrequited love is the actual worst–YOU ARE ALLOWED to feel shitty. So just cry it out, boo.
Don’t Cry — G. Na (Scholar Who Walks The Night)
Even the title of this song tries to soothe you. “Don’t cry,” it says, while gently rubbing your back and letting you use its shirt as a Kleenex. Which of course, only makes you cry more because it’s being so nice. But that’s okay: just watch an episode of SCHOLAR WHO WALKS THE NIGHT on our Roku channel and remember that at least you’re not in love with some who sort of wants to eat you.
Remember — Dear Cloud (Hello Monster)
GAH, THE MEMORIES.
Away With You – Every Single Day (The Time We Were Not In Love)
This one’s a little more rock-and-roll. The time for tears has past, my friend. You’re about to move on with your freaking life and this song is gonna help you do it.
Eyes – Jay Park (Oh My Ghost)
Finally, let Jay Park ease you down the path to recovery. Because Jay Park’s velvet voice is really all you need. Basically, anyone who isn’t Jay Park is pretty useless. So forget ’em, and hopelessly pine after Jay instead. That’s healthy, right?
