Do Tell: Your Favorite Breakup Song



After reading some of the comments from my Do Tell on your secret heartsickness remedy, calibabi mentioned a great way to heal... listening to your favorite "breakup song"! Whether it is a sappy slow song that reminds you of all the great times you shared with your significant other or a loud, pissed off angry song, we all have one. So ladies, do tell, what is your breakup song?

Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares to You." Trust me, after the initial cry, you will feel so relieved.

my all-time favourite break-up some is You Oughta Know by Alanis Morissette. I swear she predicted the future of my ex and I when she wrote that! haha. Everything from going down in a theatre to him telling me he was going to love me until he died. PERFECT! < 3

These are some obscure/old ones, but really good. Voltaire - The Last Word "Far be it for I to leave all this beauty behind I will stay to watch you wither away And with any luck you may be hit by a truck And I will remain to dance upon your grave Oh, look, can't you see how much your death means to me Please won't you play in a busy street? Far be it for I to leave all this beauty behind I will remain to dance upon your grave" Stabbing Westward - The Thing I Hate (P.O.M.F.) (POMF stands for "Pissed off mother-f*cker") "You've treated me like I'm a worthless piece of sh*t You think you're in control but you make me sick I want to watch you suffer The way that you've made me suffer I want to f*ck up everything you've ever loved" And if you're going to listen to "I will Survive", make sure it's the version by Cake. For some reason, the more vulgar the lyrics, the happier you are to get over someone. "I should have changed my f*cking lock, I should have made you leave your key..."

i have to agree with drummer: "seventy times seven" is one of my favorite break up songs..it soo bitter "i cant let you let me down again" sappy HAS to be anytime by brian mcknight: "do i ever cross your mind anytime? do you ever wake up reaching out for me do i ever cross your mind anytime i miss you" omg i love his voice too another good bitter is fall out boy 'tell that mick he just made my list of things to do today" "lets play this game called when you catch fire i wouldn't p!ss to put you out no stop burning bridges and drive off of them so i can forget about you"

"Good-bye" by Jagged Edge, if it's a breakup that was mutual and yet still hurts very much, or "Girl It's Over" by Jagged Edge if it's more of a "shut-the-door-forever" kind of breakup.

Apologize by Timbaland ft. One Republic. It's sad but at the same time really boosts a decision. Thanks for the other suggestions guys, I really need it right now.

I already commented on this but I also thought of 'Everybody Hurts' by R.E.M. That's a good one when you're hanging your head in your beer

Ok the only one that comes to mind goes like this, ahem, "I can't live if living is without you...." Don't know the name of the song or who sang it but it's from the 70's.
