Songs For A Divorce Party

The Y! Music Playlist Blog



I would not wish a divorce on my worst enemy, but if you become an unfortunate statistic on the battlefield of love then I may have the soundtrack for you.

This playlist contains a perfect collection of songs for your next divorce or breakup party. There are literally thousands of separation songs sung from a "woe-is-me" perspective. And if that's what you're looking for, this is not the playlist for you. 

The majority of the songs found here are empowering and spiteful. When you're going through a divorce you don't need melancholy music to drive you further to depression. What you need are songs that tell it like it is, and lay the blame squarely on your ex, truth be damned. Snide remarks and an independent spirit hit the spot when you're heartbroken and these songs may be just what the doctor ordered.

So get some good friends together, put this list on, then lift a glass and a middle finger. You have my word, it will get better.
