Top 15 Break-Up Songs of the '90s


During a recent #datechat on Twitter, the topic was "best break up songs." Most of mine seemed to come from the '90s. Although I'm an '80s baby, I didn't feel heartbreak until the '90s. I began to search the interwebs for other great break up songs but none of the lists seemed to satisfy my '90s craving. So I decided to put my own list together! Before there was Adele, there were these gems. Here are my picks for the top 15 break-up songs of the '90s (in no particular order):

15. Patty Smyth feat Don Henley - "Sometimes Love Just Isn't Enough"

Don Henley + Patty Smyth = rock ballad gold!

14. Lisa Loeb - "Stay"

Captures the '90s perfectly.

13. Toni Braxton - "Un-break My Heart"

My first introduction to Tyson Bedford - HELLO!

12. Whitney Houston - "I Have Nothing"

Gotta have a Whitney song on the list!

11. Boyz II Men - "End of the Road"

I know every word.

10.  Sinead O’Connor - "Nothing Compares 2 U"


That tear!

9. U2 - "One"

"I can't be holdin' on to what you got, when all you got is hurt"

8. Alanis Morissette - "You Oughta Know" 

For when you want to throw his stuff out the window or burn it.

7. Mariah Carey ft Bone Thugz 'n Harmony - "Breakdown" 


6. Jewel - "Foolish Games"


5. The Tony Right Project - "Nobody Knows"

 

4. Hootie & The Blowfish - "Let Her Cry"

 
What's a '90s list without Hootie?

3. Duran Duran "Come Undone"

Why are they in an aquarium?

2. Mary J. Blige - "Not Gon' Cry"

 
"I shoulda left your ass a thousand times!" No one does it like Mary.

1. Pearl Jam - "Black" 

 
I can belt out "I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a sun in somebody else's sky, but why, why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine" all day.

What other songs would you add to the list?

  1. Is there anything better then 90s music? I don't think so! I loved all these songs and would sing them even when I had no idea what they were talking about lol
