CC Intern Mixtape: Get Over Him, Girl!
At this point in our young, wonderful lives, it’s safe to say that we’ve all gone through a rough break-up. We’ve all been dumped. We’ve all had our hearts ripped from our chests only to watch as our ex takes said heart and throws it off the roof of his three-story apartment building. We’re left alone, brushing off the dirt and alleyway gunk. Too much? Maybe. Regardless, in times like these, we think that the world has stopped turning. We’re left in a state of complete devastation, wondering 1) how this person that we loved and trusted could do this to us and 2) how the hell are we going to get over them?
They say that time heals all wounds, and I truly believe in this phrase. But I also know that there is a great way to speed up the healing process: music. The power of a good “f–k you” song can do wonders for a girl’s esteem. Once we get that certain girl anthem blasting from our speakers, we feel a little better. Sometimes it takes a musical artist’s pain and heartache to make us forget about ours for a little while.
I had the honor and privilege of picking a list of songs for the perfect “Get Over Him” mix. Let me tell you, it was not easy. If I could, I would put 100 more songs on here, but I tried to narrow it down to 15 of my all-time favorites. These range from emo-ballads to hip-hop diss tracks, and I love them all! I hope you enjoy and give this a listen when you’re ready to finally get over that loser that broke your heart.
