Being single on Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be a cause for sadness, but rather an opportunity for self-love and empowerment. Whether you’ve been jilted in love, faced a messy breakup, or still nurse unrequited feelings for a certain someone, these songs are a reminder that your first priority should always be yourself.

New Romantics is a song about reclaiming your life after heartbreak. The music video showcases snippets from Swift’s concerts and behind-the-scenes footage from her tours, highlighting her personal relationship with her fans. At its heart, this is a song about celebration and reckless partying with friends who’ll always have your back.

  1. I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor (2002)

Gloria Gaynor’s track is the quintessential anthem to listen to after a break-up. Parting ways with someone you loved can bring back feelings of self-loathing, abandonment, and other insecurities. But the song urges listeners to be strong and resilient in face of adversity and have greater faith in themselves. 

  1. Let It Go by Idina Menzel (2013)

Sometimes, you need to be the one to end things and start over. Being brutally honest might come at a price, but perhaps you need to turn your back on the past and reinvent yourself. This song, from the Disney animated film Frozen, can help you let go of whatever’s holding you back and connect with your true self.

  1. Victoria’s Secret by Sonata Arcitca (2003)

Victoria’s Secret by Sonata Arctica is a lovely, foot-tapping song about optimism and hope. No matter how bad things may have been, you can always work toward a brighter and happier future.  

  1. Brand New Me by Alicia Keys (2012)

Finding yourself again can be a fulfilling and motivating project. By introspecting on your past mistakes, you can learn to better assert yourself and set clearer boundaries. The “new you” might be different and more confident, and some people might have trouble recognizing you. But Alicia Key’s song is a reminder that it’s their problem if they can’t accept your authentic self.

  1. Queen of Argyle by Sons of Maxwell (1998)

A folk song originally composed by Andy Stewart and covered by the Sons of Maxwell, this ballad is a celebration of feminine power, beauty, and mystique. If you’re feeling down lately, this song is sure to uplift your mood and make you proud of being a woman.

  1. Material Girl by Madonna (1984)

Indulging in yourself is a vital form of self-care. Money and material things can distract you from pathetic boys who aren’t even worth your attention. While you certainly don’t need to date a rich person to find happiness as this song suggests, you can definitely buy small gifts and pamper yourself.
