In a new interview with People, Adele said of life after a breakup, “I mope around for a little bit. I do embrace the fact that I’m heartbroken. I don’t move on quickly.” She listed her favorite songs to listen to during those moments.

The songs she turns to are a mix of classics like Etta James’ “All I Could Is Cry” and more modern pop fare like Katy Perry’s “Not Like the Movies.” Other selections include David Grey’s “This Year’s Love,” Mumford & Sons’ “After the Storm,” and Florence + the Machine’s “Cosmic Love.”
