For shouty, over-it, see ya anthems (hiya Little Mix), 2016 is hard to beat. But The 1975’s occasionally pretentious ode to post-break-up jealousy took a different tack. Over glistening synths (so synthy it’s like the ’80s sneezed on them), Matt Healy’s breathy delivery drives the feeling home; the green-eyed monster can rear its ugly head even when you’re the one who’s been doing the heartbreaking.
Heartbreak is hell, but it's inspired a helluva lot of great pop music – just ask Fleetwood Mac. Our list of the greatest heartbreak songs has been chosen by the DJs from U Suck, an ace Dalston club night devoted to break-up bangers and empowering, screw-you-anyway-mate anthems. From Robyn to Solange, and Taylor Swift to Gloria Gaynor, these tunes will remind you that however bad you're feeling right now, somebody else has probably had it worse. Oh, and if you still need some feels, check out our list of the 50 best sad songs, too.
