Top 14 Spanish Breakup Songs For Learning Spanish Vocabulary

Music always seems to comfort the brokenhearted. There are certain songs that speak to our hearts and put our pain into such poetic phrases that we cannot think of on our own. Others, like myself, just love sad songs even when they are not brokenhearted.  Since I loved sad songs, and I loved Spanish, I combined the two and started to listen to Spanish breakup songs in order to help me learn Spanish. I listened to the same songs over and over to use context clues to figure out the meaning of words. Also, I would take note of the popular words that were heard across the board from many songs.  Below is a list of my top 14 Spanish breakup songs (w/ lyrics). Since I know that everyone likes different genres, I tried my best to include songs for a all tastes of music. I also have them separated by reason for the breakup. Let me know what your favorite songs were from this list, and what songs you think I should have added to the list.
