Breaking Up is hard to do! Who doesn't love the oldie Goldie!



Cait OSullivan said...

Love Christina Perri, Jar of Hearts, especially the line 'don't come back to me, don't come back at all'. Fab empowering stuff!

My favorite song about breaking up I Can't Make You Love Me by Bonnie Raitt.

Krystal Lynn said...

I have too many! Some for each kind of breakup situation..

I Just Really Miss You - Miranda Lambert (when it's still new and sad.)
Never Again - Kelly Clarkson (when you're angry and vengeful)
Someone Like You - Adele (when you can't get over someone who's already moved on)
Gravity - Sara Barielles (when you can't keep from going back to the same person again and again)
Goodbye - Natalie Imbruglia (Just a hauntingly, beautiful song.)
No Me Queda Mas - Selena (When the most beautiful love you had was with someone who doesn't acknowledge it's existence.)
Wanted You More - Lady Antebellum
Over You - Miranda Lambert (Technically not written as a breakup song but the lyrics fit perfectly for it.)
Best I Ever Had - Gary Allen
Through With You - Maroon 5

I'll stop there. I love music.

'Breaking Up Is Hard To Do' - Various renditions out there but I always think of the Carpenters.

I will say it again, red rubber ball.

One & Only by Adele. My all-time fave Adele song (til she releases a new album anyways). If you haven't heard this song, YOU MUST LISTEN TO IT - NOW!! Amazing!

When I went through my first break-up back in high school, however, the song I listened to over & over was "(I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight". Over & over & over.....
