The Denizens Of Facebook Use Katy Perry To Mend Their Broken Hearts

Posted February 14

We’re guessing that for many among us, Valentine’s Day is a Facebook minefield: myriad posts detailing a BF/GF’s many-splendored attributes, bitter pals picking at old scars, and tons upon scads upon bussels of love (and anti-) love songs. Well, if you can’t beat ‘em, at least you can laugh at ‘em. Facebook is out with a list of tunes today common among folks in love/and in hate — and it’s an eye-opening array.

According to Facebook, the below 20 songs are those most commonly listened to among people just starting out on a new love affair and those just ending one. Note the abundance of Taylor Swift in the latter category.

Check out the full list (and accompanying infographic) and let us know in the comments: What’s your favorite breakup/love song? I’m partial to “She Hates Me” by Puddle of Mudd, myself.
