When you’re feeling a little down in the dumps, add a few of these songs to you playlist.

We all have those days where we just want to stay in bed and reflect on everything that goes on in our life and there is absolutely no shame in it. Whether your boyfriend or girlfriend just broke up with you, the demons are back or you simply just feel blah, you should listen to these ten songs:

#10: “Bruises” by Lewis Capaldi
It’s definitely the voice. Capaldi knows how to sing the ultimate sad song.

#9: “Falling” by Harry Styles
Honestly, must I explain? This song encapsulates everything someone with a broken heart might feel.

#8: “Screams and Dreams” by Faye
Losing a friend over feelings that aren’t mutual is the absolute worst feeling. “Screams and Dreams” perfectly describes the pain behind the smile.

#7: “Half a Heart” by One Direction
Calling all my Directioners; You all know what I’m talking about. Underneath the beauty of the lyrics, you definitely feel pure heartache when you listen to “Half a Heart.”

#6: “i love you” by Billie Eilish
Love is such a powerful emotion, but when it’s for the wrong person it could be tragic.

#5: “Will He” by Joji
We all know that Joji is the internet sad boi, so of course he would have a guaranteed spot on this list.

#4: “Somebody Else” by The 1975
An ex meets up with someone new and you just need to come to terms with it, listen to “Somebody Else” to help.

#3: “Imagine” by John Lennon
As I write this, I watch our country crumble, and all I want to do is escape. “Imagine” gives a perfect world to dream about.

#2: “Someone Like You” by Adele
You knew this song would be on this list. No shame in listening to the queen of breakup songs to get those feelings out.

#1: “Fix You” by Coldplay
Yes, we are in fact throwing it back more than a decade. “Fix You” is the song that covers everything sad and it is definitely a go-to.
