Spotify Playlist for Writing Breakups

This is part of a series of playlists curated to set the mood for scene writing.


Breakups take on so many different moods of their own, sort of like that famous Tolstoy quote from Anna Karenina, "All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."

Each breakup is uniquely shitty in its own respect the way it guts you, relieves you, or leaves you lying on the sidewalk at 2 a.m., super drunk and trying unsuccessfully to eat a slice of pizza through the tears while your friend orders a price-hiked Uber.

When you're writing about a breakup, it helps to set the mood by listening to breakup songs and hearing different tales of lovers parting ways via tear-inducing strings or a beat full of redemption. Pop on this playlist and let the breakup begin.
