Let’s be real, part of going through a break up is allowing yourself to be sad, and, well…wallowing in that sadness for a bit. No matter how much of a douche your ex was, we still mourn the loss of a relationship, and the loss of companionship, it’s okay to feel broken. I wanted to capture the essence of the feeling you get when you’re crying your eyes out watching ‘How to be Single’ while curled up on the couch with your dogs, and a pint of ice cream. So, buckle in, get the tissues out, and stay tuned for season 2 of Late Night Swipes on Sticker Fridge Studios!
  •  Kacey Musgraves – Space Cowboy:
    • This song is about letting go of an unhealthy relationship. Its slow, sad, and perfect for a good cry in the car.
  • The 1975 – Somebody Else (Alt Edit):
    • Realizing your ex has moved on to someone new can be tough news – no matter how much we “hate that asshole”. This song embodies that feeling perfectly with its repetitive chorus “I don’t want your body, but I hate to think about you with somebody else”
  • Passenger – Let Her Go (Live at Spotify Amsterdam):
    • Sometimes break-ups are no one’s fault but our own. Realizing you lost a good thing can suck. The live version of this song hits your right in the gut.
  • Sam Smith – Too Good At Goodbyes:
    • After you get your heart broken a couple of times, you start to build up a defense system. It takes a special person to break those walls down, and that’s exactly what this song is about. *Pro Tip* This one is great for belting out in the shower.
  • City Lights – Lawnmower (Acoustic):
    • I mean, how could this song NOT be on this playlist. I wouldn’t dare deny my inner emo kid the chance to scream out some sad boy pop punk. And, the acoustic version is straight fire.
  • Amber Run – I Found:
    • After a recent break-up the lyrics of this song really spoke to me. The song itself is almost like a chant, and the instrumental parts are just straight up beautiful.
  • The Weeknd – Call Out My Name:
    • “Loving you was my biggest mistake” – GUUUURL. Been there, felt that. Who hasn’t.
  • The Story So Far – Clairvoyant:
    • “Don’t paint me black, when I used to be golden” is such a powerful line. There’s nothing worse than an ex who’s out there trying to smear your reputation. *Recommends jamming at full blast in the car during a scenic drive*
  • Jessi Malay – All of Me – Acoustic (Cover):
    • This song is originally performed by the master John Legend, and that version is flawless. I discovered this version while dating an ex, and we used to listen to it together in the car. Back then it was a cute, sweet, romantic song. However, when we broke up the song took on a different tone, and it would always bring me to tears
