This is one of my all-time favourite upbeat songs! Gonna Get Over You by Sara Bareilles is a break-up song that is not depressing at all. Sara Bareilles sings about feeling terrible about a break-up, but she knows that she will be fine eventually. The song talks about how break-ups can lead to personal growth and acceptance. It also reminds us of our worth and when to let go of a relationship that is one sided. Come to think of it, the song is positive and empowering!
Interpretations of this song may range from PG to R due to the lyrics’ connotations. It’s mainly about going out and going all out with your friends, nothing but pure fun.

I highly recommend that this is the first song that you listen to when you’re going on a road trip.

This song is so beautifully wholesome and it’s just perfect for a wonderful, sunny day.
