If you've ever been dumped then you'll be aware of the therapeutic power of music.
Along with alcohol and self-pity, it's a vital tool in helping to get over someone. On the other end of the spectrum, Facebook succeeds at being incredibly unhelpful. Providing you with a torturous update of what your ex is doing without you, it's wise to steer clear.
Well, it seems as though we're masochists. To "celebrate" Valentine's Day, the team at Facebook have revealed what songs people are most likely to play at the end of a relationship. How do they do this, you scream? Well, firstly they know when you're out of a relationship (thanks to your input) and secondly, with help from Spotify, they know what you're listening to around that time.
The break-up song du jour is The Cave by Mumford & Sons, which isn't a surprise with lyrics like "I'll find strength in my pain" and "It's empty in the valley of your heart". Here are the other break-up songs:
Crew Love by Drake
All of the Lights by Kanye West
Rolling in the Deep by Adele
Take Care by Drake
It Will Rain by Bruno Mars
We Found Love by Rihanna & Calvin Harris
Call It What You Want by Foster the People
Love You Like a Love Song by Selena Gomez and the Scene
Without You by David Guetta featuring Usher
It's not all misery though as they also looked at what songs you tend to play when you're entering a relationship. Choice number one is Don't Wanna Go Home with Jason DeRulo. The other songs are:
Love On Top by Beyoncé
How to Love by Lil Wayne
Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars
Good Feeling by Flo Rida
It Girl by Jason Derulo
Stereo Hearts by Gym Class Heroes featuring Adam Levine
