20 Songs You Need To Hear Post-Breakup

20 Songs You Need To Hear Post-Breakup

Embrace the healing power of music.

Getting over a breakup isn't always easy. But, thankfully, we have music to make it better.

Stage 1: Denial.

Properly mourning a breakup always needs some Taylor Swift.

"Forever and Always" by Taylor Swift.

" Baby, what happened, please tell me, cause one second it was perfect, now you're halfway out the door. And I stare at the phone, he still hasn't called, and then you feel so low you can't feel nothing at all, and you flashback to when he said forever and always."

"I Almost Do" by Taylor Swift.

"I just wanna tell you it takes everything in me not to call you. And I wish I could run to you, and I hope you know that every time I don't- I almost do."

Stage 2: Sadness.

"White Horse" by Taylor Swift.

"I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairytale. I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet, lead her up the stairwell. This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town. I was a dreamer before you went and let me down... I had so many dreams about you and me, happy endings."

"Last Kiss" by Taylor Swift.

"So I watch your life in pictures like I used to watch you sleep, and I feel you forget me like I used to feel you breathe. And I keep up with our old friends just to ask them how you are."

"Sad Beautiful Tragic" by Taylor Swift.

"In dreams I meet you in warm conversation. We both wake in lonely beds in different cities. And time is taking its sweet time erasing you. And you've got your demons, and, darling, they all look like me."

"All Too Well" by Taylor Swift.

"You taught me 'bout your past, thinking your future was me, and I know it's long gone, and there was nothing else I could do. And I forget about you long enough to forget why I needed to... And you call me up again just to break me like a promise, so casually cruel in the name of being honest, now I'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying here..."

"I Never Told You" by Colbie Caillat.

"I miss everything about you, I can't believe I still want you... I see your blue eyes every time I close mine."

"Used To Love You" by Gwen Stefani.

"You know I was the best thing that ever happened to you, now look at what you lost. I don't know why I cry, but I think it's cause I remembered for the first time since I hated you that I used to love you."

"Confetti" by Sia.

"'I'm hanging with the boys,' you said, 'workin' late to pay our bills,' but I found lipstick on your collar. Wasn't my color. I watched you slip, slip away, no explanation... No I won't miss you, I won't cry, I don't regret it."

"Wide Awake" by Katy Perry.

"'Til I woke up on, on the concrete. Falling from cloud nine, crashing from the high,
I'm letting go tonight."

Stage 3: Anger.

"Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" by Pink.

"I will do what I please, anything that I want. I will breathe, I will breathe, I won't worry at all. You will pay for your sins, you'll be sorry my dear, all the lies, all the why's, will all be crystal clear. I think I've finally had enough, I think I maybe think too much, I think this might be it for us. Blow me one last kiss!"

"Leave" by JoJo.

"Get out, leave, right now! It's the end of you and me. It's too late now and I can't wait for you to be gone, cause I know about her, and I wonder how I bought all the lies. You said that you would treat me right but you was just a waste of time!"

"Part of Me" by Katy Perry.

"This is the part of me that you're never gonna ever take away from me. Throw your sticks and your stones, throw your bombs and your blows, but you're not gonna break my soul."

"Fighter" by Christina Aguilera.

"If it wasn't for all that you tried to do, I wouldn't know just how capable I am to pull through, so I want to say thank you 'cause it makes me that much stronger, makes me work a little bit harder. It makes me that much wiser, so thanks for making me a fighter."

"Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood.

"I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive, carved my name into his leather seats. I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights, slashed a hole in all four tires, maybe next time he'll think before he cheats."

"Picture To Burn" by Taylor Swift

"State the obvious, I didn't get my perfect fantasy. I realize you love yourself more than you could ever love me. So go and tell your friends I'm obsessive and crazy, that's fine."

"I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift.

"A new notch in your belt is all I'll ever be, and now I see... he was long gone when he met me, and I realize the joke is on me. I knew you were trouble when you walked in, so shame on me now."

"So What" by Pink.

"So what? I'm still a rock star, I got my rock moves, and I don't need you! And guess what? I'm having more fun, and now that we’re done, I'm gonna show you tonight, I'm alright, I'm just fine, and you're a tool!"

Stage 4: Healing.

"Take A Bow" by Rihanna.

"You put on quite a show, really had me going. But now it's time to go, curtain's finally closing."

"Best Thing I Never Had" by Beyonce.

"Thank God you blew it, thank God I dodged the bullet, I'm so over you... I used to want you so bad, I'm so through with that."

10 Must-See Shots From Down In Coachella Valley

These will make you regret that you weren't there; or make you irritated that you just can't afford tickets

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is arguably one of the most hyped up music festivals of all time. Certainly festival classics like Woodstock make Coachella look like a mere millennial blowout, but the fashion, music, and art on display over these three weekends in Indio, California is unlike any other. Many say that the beloved annual festival is all about social media status and the killer photos that come with the desert experience, so here are some of my favorite shots from weekend two.

Top 5 Favorite Childhood Cartoons

"What's up, Doc?"

Do you remember watching cartoons when you were young? You would wake up on Saturdays and eat your breakfast while watching your favorite toon. I remember quite well because I would wake up super early to catch my favorite cartoon before I went to school or even the weekends. Well, if you remember that feeling of watching the opening of your favorite cartoon(s), then get ready to go down memory lane and feel that feeling again. I am about to list some of my favorite cartoons and maybe you will relate.

1)Tom and Jerry – It is the classic cat and mouse cartoon. Tom, the cat trying to catch and make a meal out of Jerry, the clever mouse. It will never get old and will remain a classic for a long, long time.If you ask anyone what their favorite cartoon was or is, it will most likely be this one.

2)Looney Toons – “What’s up, Doc?” This is the most popular phrase of all time and associated with this series, spoken by Bugs Bunny. Let’s not forget Daffy, Tweety, Tasmanian Devil, Porky Pig, and more. These characters will have you laughing until your stomach hurts. If you are a true fan of cartoons, then you will never forget this. This animated series has even though funny but they did portray some societal issues through their characters in a clever way.

3)Courage the Cowardly Dog – Who can forget the pink dog who is paranoid and lands himself in weird situations on the farm he lives on with his owners, Eustace and Muriel. He is always saving them from freaky creatures on the farm. If you were young and watched this, you were surely scared because the creatures were very freaky looking but you cheered Courage on to save his owners.

4)Arthur – You remember this show because you probably did not have cable. So one of the channels you could access was PBS Kids. This boy dealt with everything a child his age dealt with like: homework, friends, school, and annoying little sisters. This series aired in the morning and afternoon so you know you were skipping doing your homework to watch what Arthur and his friends were up to this episode.

5)The Powerpuff Girls – The trio sisters with super powers, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles who were created by Professor Utonium in a lab. They save Townsville from villains like Mojo Jojo, Him, and Gangreen Gang. Also, you and friends argued over who was Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles, Personally, I loved Bubbles!

Well, there you go! These are my top 5 favorite animated series, which make me happy everytime, I watched them. I still do when they air on their respective channels like PBS Kids, Cartoon Network, and Boomerang.
