When you first break up with someone, the initial pain of the split may take some time to subside; you'll probably be listening to some pretty sad songs to cry it out. However, once your down-in-the-dumps phase seems to be coming to a close, it's time to listen to only the best post-breakup, moving-on songs. My best friend sent me her "f*ck you" playlist filled with some pretty great songs for when you're in this mood. Granted, wanting to move on does NOT have to mean that you have negative feelings toward your ex; it just means that you're ready to start a new chapter of your life.
Add these tunes to your playlist and listen when you're ready to move on:
1. “Don’t Call Me Up” - MabelGiphy
"I'm over you and I don't need your lies no more, 'cause the truth is without you, boy, I'm stronger"
"I'm on a high and you're alone, going out of your mind, but I'm here up in the club and I don't wanna talk, so don't call me up"
"'Cause I'm here looking fine, babe, and I got eyes looking my way, and everybody's on my vibe, babe"
"When you're looking at my photos, getting hot, losing control; you want me more now I let go"
2. “Drink About” - Seeb featuring Dagny
"I'd pay a million bucks to think about anybody else but you, drink about anybody else but you, talk about anybody else but you"
"No more waking up in your room!"
"I want anybody else but you"

"If I could go back to the day we met I probably would just stay in bed"
"I wrote a little song for you, it goes like: do, re, mi, fa, so f*ckin' done with you"
"So f*ckin' done with all the games you play, I ain't no tic-tac-toe"
4. “Sorry” - Beyonce
