Adele Shares Her #1 Favorite Breakup Song

We all listen to Adele when we’re heartbroken, so what did the Queen of Heartbreak herself listen to when she was going through a breakup?

Adele shared her favorite post-breakup songs with People Magazine and Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” ranked #1. Not surprising given her amazing cover performance of the song. She has this in common with Alexandra Lee, who also listed this song as her favorite heartbreak song when we interviewed her.

We would have to agree Adele and Alex. It is one of the best…

Talking about how she mends, she told People “I mope around for a little while…I do embrace the fact that I’m heartbroken. I don’t move on quickly. I don’t know if that’s because it seems that I’m only really creative when I’m a bit momentarily depressed.” 

Her other favorite songs to listen to when heartbroken were:

Mumford & Sons – “After the Storm”

Florence + The Machine – “Cosmic Love”

David Gray – “This Year’s Love”

Katy Perry – “Not Like The Movies”


Etta James – “All I Could Do Is Cry”

Thanks, Adele, for continuing to help us through heartbreak.
