You know what sucks? Missing someone. When texts and Instagram DMs (or Facebook pokes...I won't judge) don't feel like enough, you need to just turn up some sad music and have a good cry. It's the most cathartic way to handle your feelings. Here are the best songs to listen to when bae's long gone.

1. "Hello" by Adele

Can you believe that Adele invented getting ghosted in 2015?! Truly remarkable. Although this song is the ultimate ballad to listen to when you're in your feelings, it's worth pointing out that maybe she should stop trying to call a landline. IDK.

2. "Slide Away" by Miley Cyrus

Looking for a side of "moving on" with your "IMY?" Newly single Miley has your back. If she can break up with Liam Hemsworth without texting his ass, you can get over your ex too.

3. "Somebody Else" by The 1975

You know, sometimes you just have to listen to "Somebody Else" on repeat for a few hours until one of your friends notices your Spotify activity and sends you a screenshot to make sure you're okay.

4. "When I Was Older" by Billie Eilish

Billie could literally put you in your feelings by singing "Happy Birthday"...but trust, this song is actually about missing someone and being lonely.

5. "Supercut" by Lorde

Wow, Lorde really wrote a whole-ass song about scrolling through all your tagged photos with an ex...but made it into complete and total art. This song really effs you up, because, like, it's kinda upbeat but also it will emotionally destroy you?

6. "Lost In Japan" by Shawn Mendes

In a long-distance 'ship? You probs can't hop on a last-minute flight to hang out, like Shawn does, but...you can maybe send them this song? It's the thought that counts, TBH.

7. "Ghostin" by Ariana Grande

You don't have to be single to miss someone! Ariana's "Ghostin" is all about that. So, like, if you can't be open about the fact that you miss someone else even if you're with a new boo...listen to this on the low and DON'T say I suggested it.

8. "What Do You Mean?" by Justin Bieber

You know who I can't find anywhere? Purpose-era Justin. I truly miss him so, so much.

9. "Always Remember Us This Way" by Lady Gaga

The worst part about "Always Remember Us This Way" is that Lady Gaga, aka Ally, wrote it when she was totally happy but it's still totally heart-wrenching. Honestly, even if you aren't missing someone, you'll bawl your eyes out to this.

10. "Make Me (Cry)" by Noah Cyrus feat. Labrinth

LOL, you know that feeling when you really miss someone but also low-key hate them? Noah gets it...and has cried about it too.

11. "Ghost" by Halsey

Have you ever missed someone who's, like...literally right TF there? People change and it happens. Just throw this OG Halsey bop on repeat and you'll get through it.
