There will always be a place for "I Will Survive" in your iPod, but if you're going through a breakup and craving something a little bit different for your earbuds, let us help! Here are a few classic (yet unconventional) song picks to get you back on your feet:
"Breakin' Up," Rilo Kiley
We love the upbeat tempo and lead singer Jenny Lewis's confidence.
Sample lyric: "Oooh, it feels good to be free."
Who says dudes can't be heartbroken too? Listen here.
Sample lyric: "I'm sorry that you turned to driftwood / But you've been drifting for a long, long time."
"Jar of Hearts," Christina Perri
Perri is a young newbie, but we love her already.
Sample lyric: "And who do you think you are / Running 'round leaving scars / Collecting your jar of hearts / And tearing love apart."
"Late for the Sky," Jackson Browne
A tender song from a veteran singer/songwriter. Listen here.
Sample lyric: "You never knew what I loved in you / I don't know what you loved in me / Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be."
"I Have Loved You Wrong," The Swell Season
The adorable duo from the movie Once covers breakup territory.
Sample lyric: "Forgive me, lover / For I have sinned / I have loved you wrong."
