Few things can actually help soothe the pain of a broken heart, but sometimes the right song at the right moment can make all the difference. There's just something about music that can be so affirming, but that also allows you the opportunity to get lost in the moment, both of which are exactly what you need when dealing with the post-breakup blues. When it comes to songs about heartache, few bands nail it quite as powerfully as Fleetwood Mac. As for which Fleetwood Mac songs to listen to after a breakup, the answer is technically: All. Of. Them. However, there are a few that stand out from the rest.
These songs pair Stevie Nicks' endlessly aching vocals with lyrics that speak directly to your heart, so that while you might be hurting you can know that you're not in your pain alone. Perhaps even more importantly, these songs don't only embrace the heartache, but also offer a bittersweet (yet ultimately hopeful) message for how you grow and who you're going to become on the other side — because these feelings won't last forever. With that in mind, here are the Fleetwood Mac songs to add to your breakup playlist.
