I don't think they make a break-up song for my ex. "F*** off and I hope you die" wouldn't sell very well.

Although Sad Songs and Waltzes by Cake and Good Day by Dresden Dolls are pretty good when you feel bitter about getting dumped.

LOL. Hmmm there is a song along those lines. Mya Harrison has a song on her debut album called "If you died I wouldn't cry because you never loved me anyway." Very too the point but humorous too.

Why should I cry for you - Sting. I didn't shead a single tear for that arsehole.

The Thing That Should Not Be - Razed in Black. Never should have hooked up, he destroyed six months of my life.

Weak and Powerless - A Perfect Circle. A very posesive man, even had to walk me to the bathroom in clubs.

us or them - The Cure. damn straight "I don't want you anywhere near me."

Pierrot the Clown - Placebo. In particular the line "leave me bleeding on the bed, I'll see you right back here tomorrow for the next round" Date raped, incase you're wondering.

Always thought of myself as bisexual but haven't dated a man since, am sickened by the thought of dating a man.

. . .there are approximately 18 million songs that would be on my breakup soundtrack. Several that made me think of her think of her today are:

-Love and Memories- O.A.R

-You Oughta Know- Alanis Morissette

-Resolution- Nick Lachey (don't laugh, it's a good song)

-I Hate Everything About You- Ugly Kid Joe

Unfortunately, we shared a bond with music, as we're both musicians, so essentially every song goes back to her in some way. It's a shame too, I've been avoiding listening to alot of favorites because of it.

Godsmack has a song out called "I F***ing Hate you" does that count? It was one of my favorite breakup songs!

Probably right.  However, there's this site:

that's got a bunch of songs and the lyrics.

Well... I think "F*** You and the Horse You Rode in On" has to be my No. 1 pick... I haven't written it yet but I'm giving it some serious thought!

My ex and I have two entire cds of songs that I made for us of songs that we consider to be "ours". It is one of the many horrible things about breaking up with her. I can't listen to the music I love any more. Here's the top 5.

1) "Come Away With Me" by Norah Jones

2) "Crazy Game" by the Indigo Girls

3) "Free In You" by the Indigo Girls

4) "Our Love is Here to Stay" by Natalie Cole

5) "Sexomatic Venus Freak" by Macy Gray

I guess our musical tastes are kinda varied!

I don't know who wrote it but the chorus goes: "If you want to be happy for the rest of your life never make a pretty woman your wife." I can certainly relate to that one!!!

Fortunately, I haven't had to break up with anyone lately. But, in the unlikely event that I have to break up with someone after a horribly painful relationship (thank God, I don't have those), I would totally listen to "Fuck you, Lucy" by Atmosphere because he sounds really bitter and I think listening to his ridiculously angry lyrics would help me laugh it off and just be happy I wasn't him. I'll add the lyrics following this, I just think that if this doesn't amuse you, you probably take things too seriously.

Fuck You Lucy Lyrics

Artist(Band):Atmosphere

[Women Singing]

"Leave never would you, you show could I If" [x6]

[slug]

She say that she still wants a friendship

She can't live her life without me as a friend

I can't figure out why I give a damn to what she wants

I don't understand the now before the then

Most of this garbage I write that these people seem to like

Is about you and how I let you infect my life

And if they got to know you, I doubt that they would see it

They'd wonder what I showed you how you could leave it

A friend in Chicago said that I should stay persistent

If I stay around I'm bound to break resistance

Fuck you Lucy for defining my existence

Fuck you and your differences

Ever since I was a young lad with a part-time dad

It was hard to find happiness inside of what I had

I studied my mother, I digested her pain

And vowed no women on my path would have to walk the same

Travel like sound across the fate ladder

I travel with spoon to mix this cake batter (I totally laugh at this line)

And I travel with feels so I can deal with touch

It's like that, thank you very much, fuck you very much!

[Chorus]

(Yes, yes it is)

And everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

(Yes, yes it is)

And everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

[slug]

Fuck the "what happened?", I got stuck

They can peel pieces of me off the grill of her truck (yeah...graphic)

Used to walk with luck, used to hold her hand

Fell behind then played the role of a slower man

I want to stand on top of this mountain and yell

I want to wake up and break up this lake of hell

I feel like a bitch for letting the she twist me up

The last starfighter is wounded, time to give it up

On a pick it up mission, kept it bitter

Gettin' in a million memories just to forget her

The difficulty in keepin' emotions controlled

Cookies for the road, took me by the soul

Hunger for the drama, hunger for the nurture

Gonna take it further, the hurt feels like murder

Interpret the eyes, read the lines on her face

The sunshine is fake, how much time did I waste?

Fuck you Lucy for leaving me

Fuck you Lucy for not needing me

I wanna say fuck you because I still love you

No, I'm not okay, and I don't know what to do

[Chorus]

(Yes, yes it is)

And everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

(Yes, yes it is)

And everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

[slug]

Do I sound mad? Well I guess I'm a little pissed

Every action has a point, five points make a fist

You close 'em, you swing 'em, it's hurts when it hits (bitter much)

And the truth can be a bitch, but if the boot fits

I got an idea: You should get a tattoo that says "Warning"

That's all, just a warning, so the potential victim can take a left and save breath,

And avoid you, sober and upset in the morning

I wanna scream, "Fuck you Lucy!"

But the problem is I love you Lucy

So instead I'ma finish my drink and have another

While you think about how you used to be my lover

[Chorus]

(Yes, yes it is)

And everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

(Yes, yes it is)

And everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

Everyone in his life would mistake it as love

[Women Singing]

"Leave never would you, you show could I If" [x12]

For me any song can become sad even if the lyrics are happy because I listen to the melody first.

The top five most played after my last break up are the following: 

1. Eien/Eternity- BoA

2. Eyes,Nose, Lips - Both the original by Taeyang and the English cover by Lydia Paek

3. The Worst- Jhene Aiko

4. Another Sad Love Song-Toni Braxton 

5. I Miss The Misery- Halestorm
