9 Pop Songs to Help You Move On from a Bad Relationship

Last week, I posted an essay about why we have to let go of our soul mates. Some of you reached out to let me know that I fucked up your day with lots of emotions, and in turn, forced you to reflect. I really do apologize. So if you’re currently struggling and need a list of songs to get ya through each phase of moving on you are potentially dealing with, here it is!

(I even included the best one-liners from each song so you can use them for passive aggressive Instagram captions).

I’m so petty for this. Also, P.S. see that I left off Adele because y’all already bought that album. Like you don’t need to be put on. K great, let’s dive in:

1. Leave a Trace | CHVRCHES

OK, bby. So you’re sitting there realizing all the awful shit homeboy has done and how unhealthy your relationship is. It’s time to move on but you’re just now coming to terms with it. You need ‘relief.’ Cue CHVRCHES.

Lyrics to Instagram Passive Aggressively:
“You talk far too much for someone so unkind.”

2. Before I Ever Met You | Banks

You’re mad, girl. Fuck him. He’s terrible. Now reflect on what it was like before you ever met the sorry fool.

Lyrics to Instagram Passive Aggressively:
“Everyone knows I’m right about one thing: you and I don’t work out.”

3. Marry the Night | Lady Gaga

OK, so maybe you’re having a rough night with a bottle of vino and now you need to remind yourself of the powerful empress you are.

Lyrics to Instagram Passive Aggressively:
“I’m a soldier to my own emptiness, I am a winner.”

4. Fools | Troye Sivan

So maybe you realized you fucked up by putting yourself through hell with this person. I know it’s hard not to feel like a fool but it’s OK bby. Sometimes things like this happen in order to make you an even stronger person.

Lyrics to Instagram Passive Aggressively:
“Only fools fall for you.”

5. Chasing Time | Azealia Banks

Honey, you may have wasted your time on this person, but it’s time to celebrate that you’re better than that. Dance on.

Lyrics to Instagram Passive Aggressively:
“I’m born to dance in the moonlight.”

6. King | Years & Years

All you really want now is for him to let you go so you can move on peacefully. It’s time to celebrate the king in you!

Lyrics to Instagram Passive Aggressively:
“I wanna feel like you’ve let me go.”

7. When I Needed You | Carly Rae Jepsen

If you actually happened to listen to Carly Rae Jepsen’s newest album, you wouldn’t be judging me so hard right now. The EMOTION album is very lit. Please click here to see all the praise she’s received (i.e. Named “Best of 2015” by Rolling Stone, Time Magazine, NPR, etc.). OK great, thank you.

Lyrics to Instagram Passive Aggressively:
“I thought that it was worth it to let myself just disappear.”

8. Flesh without Blood | Grimes

Moving on is quite the rush and this song will have you reveling in it, encouraging you to jump for joy and sweet release.

Lyrics to Instagram Passive Aggressively:
“And I don’t see the light I saw in you before.”

9. Judas | Lady Gaga

Oops. You done-did it again. You fell for the wrong guy. Please seek help. But really though, take this as a lesson to love yourself first and heal those wounds before you get someone new. Otherwise, you’ll keep going back to Judas and you won’t even realize it until you’re a mess yet again.

(Also, this sure is a fun tune isn’t it?)

Lyrics to Instagram Passive Aggressively:
“Baby, he’s so cruel but I’m still in love with Judas baby.”

Here’s the playlist on Spotify:
