Recently had a big row with a supposed friend of mine don't know if we'll ever speak to each other again, I'm starting to think I'm better off without them. They kept bringing me down, I feel sort of liberated so in a therapeutic way I'd like some songs that say 'I'm free' or 'good riddance to bad rubbish'.
They don't necessarily have to be break up songs.
Any suggestions?

A few songs that come to mind.... not all exactly relating to your situation but they still have the same sort of vibe

Whitney Houston - It's Not Right but It's Okay
Anastacia - Why Did You Lie To Me
Pink - Just Like A Pill
BeyoncÚ - Irreplaceable
Jessie J - Who's Laughing Now?

You must all be very young but Gloria Gaynor's 'I Will Survive' is a great statement on getting on with life.

Or Johnny Nash's 'I Can Clearly Now'
Or Bob Seger's 'Like A Rock'
Or Tom Petty's 'Free Fallin''

Or you could go a bit further north to Santa Cruz and actually get the band Good Riddance

Good Riddance - Heresy, Hypocrisy and Revenge

Positively 4th Street by Dylan. First line is "You've got a lot of nerve to say you are my friend, when I was down you just stood there grinning"...it just gets more vicious and p*ssed off as it goes along!

One of the best songs ever but I had never given any thought to what it was about until now.

"I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment, I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time, you could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is to see you"

Unbeatable...
