I invested a lot of time in locating Hindi songs that can be empowering to get over a break up – but hey they either endorse sobbing till death or they are too happy after a break up. Nothing lies on the tight rope of empowerment – when you get engrossed in the song and it becomes your anthem to get up and face life as it is. Do let me know if you know any empowering song that can help one get out of a sob state.
In a barrier less world, we have many powerfully strong messages floating around. It is okay to be hurt, it is okay to whine and cry after a break up. And then you may get into a rut of listening to all the romantic songs and watch The Notebooks (and the likes) of the world. What you need at this point is a does of some of the empowering songs, that will help you get back in life.
1. I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor
This one has the power to bring you out of the misery – I’m not that chained up little person still in love with you.
2. Hallaeuya – Jeff Buckley (adaption of Leonard Cohen)
This needs you to get into lyrical beauty and its analogy than just the music – and love is not a victory march. It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah!
3. We are never ever ever ever getting back together – Taylor Swift
For the love I have for T.S, this one celebrates a parting – This time I am telling you I am telling you, we are never ever ever ever getting back together!
4. Love will come to you – Poets Of The Fall
I cannot quite do without this hot voice, music, lyrics… And I am quite sure you too will like this! – And those marks are just a sign of something true. You witnessed in your time, of something new, like the start of something fine. Like morning dew love will come again to you~
5. Rolling in the deep – Adele
This is full of vengeance – Throw your soul through every open door. Count your blessings to find what you look for.
6. Song For The Dumped – Ben Folds Five
Relationships are investment and when it falls apart the one who invested more (either monetarily or emotionally) is broke! – I got two hands, one beating heart, and I’ll be alright, I’m gonna be alright!
7. I never loved you anyway – Corrs
How could you love someone who parted ways, you never loved that one who did not (genuinely) make efforts to stay. Period!
8. Rewind – Rascal Flatts
Because you are getting back in the past, think about this – Untouch your skin. Unkiss your lips.
9. Irreplacable – Beyonce
Well, Beyonce’s is just so right. Call them a cab’
10. Skinny Love – Bon Iver
It was a malnourished, taking pride in love that lasts for a short span. I specifically like the the raw voice and guitar strum – Cut out all the ropes and let me fall~
