Top 15 Break Up Songs

If you are looking for break up songs that might fit into your situation right now, well, you are in the right place. Let me give you my own compilation of break up songs that includes Original Pilipino Music (OPM) and songs from international artists. If you want your emotions to get carried away by the music, just listen to all of the songs in this page 😦

I ranked the songs based on the lyrics, melody, and the arrangement of the song:

  • Lyrics (50%) – expression of pain (how the lyrics expresses the pain of the broken), love story (how the lyrics narrate the story) and relate effect (how often the story occurs in real life lovers)
  • Music Melody (30%)– how the notes of the song expresses the state of mind of the broken
  • Arrangement (20%) – how the instruments create an impact on the lyrics of the song (based on the original version, not on covers or acoustic versions)

Disclaimer: This is just my own judgement and does not imply any criticism of the lyrics, melody and arrangement of the song.
