I can dedicate a few songs to the men of my breakups:

Go Away (Gloria Estefan)

Son of a Gun (Janet Jackson, with Missy Elliot)

And this one I dedicate to my ex-DH's current wife who married him when our DD was six months old:
He wasn't Man Enough (Toni Braxton)

great thread!

 

"hellhole ratrace" by girls was the song that helped me come to terms with the idea of leaving my marriage.  i considered it my 2010 theme song.  and kind of the whole album, actually.

The classic Paul Simon 50 Ways to Leave your Lover http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVXX6NFpcT8&feature=related

 

The link isn't Paul Simon, but The Muppets. I figure everyone knows the Paul Simon version :)

post #53 of 102

I'm new to this thread. I was on the forums quite a few years ago, but my job has kept me from it (whilst at work), so I'm just getting back to it. Interestingly, when I visited this thread before, I was thinking that it might be a good idea for me to leave my husband. Now, I have left, bought a new house, he's dating a new girl (whom I hate), and things are moving ahead.

 

Anyway, songs, right?

 

The entire Adele 21 album was laid on my desk at work with a note from one of my employees/friends "(Here. Have sad breakup music"). Boy, she was right, especially track #11 - "Someone like you" is too much for me at this point - I cry EVERY time. But, Rumor Has it and Turning Tables are AWESOME!

 

Ok, also, "Don't think twice, it's alright" by Bob Dylan, but also done by PPM, is cool. AND, "It ain't me babe" has an edge as well.

 

Also, seriously, once I could take Adele out of my cd player, I put in Mumford and Sons. It's awesome.

You mamas have got to check out Chris Pureka. She is just amazing. I love "Burning Bridges," it's especially fitting for cheaters. But " 3 am" "Driving North" and my favorite for when you're just PISSED regardless of what that awful person did to you :D is "Cynical".

 

Here's a link to some of her music... http://www.ilike.com/artist/search?artist_qp=chris+pureka&x=0&y=0

 

Some other random songs I'd always listen to are:

 

Swing life away- Rise against

Roulette- System of a Down

If it's the beaches- Avett Brothers

Find my love- Avett Brothers (Love the line... "how do you know when goodbye means goodbye? not just for now but for the rest of your life? how can you stand there with love in your eyes... and still be walking away?")

Jesus- Brand New

Momma Sed- Puscifer (good when I'm having a hard time accepting it all)

Humble me- Norah Jones (always makes me cry)

Silver Lining- Rilo Kiley

Breakin' up- Rilo Kiley (Awesome single mama anthem! "Whoooh, It feels good to be free!"

Portions for foxes-Rilo Kiley (this I listened to when we were in between stages and I was still so dependent on him.)

 

I have millions more. I love music a little too much lol.

Oh yeah. Bob Dylan. That guy has got a song for every occasion. Tangled Up In Blue is also good for certain types of relationship breakups.

Daughtry - Over You and No Surprise

Shania Twain - Nah!

post #57 of 102

Sort of OT....But "I Can Change", sung by "Saddam Hussein" in South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut gave me the reminder I needed for why TO follow through with the break-up.

 

I second Tyrone by Erykah Badu. Thanks!

 

Also, 'Roses' by Andre 3000/Outkast is the most ongoing, simply cathartic loop of calling someone a bad, rude, disrespectful name again, and again, and again, that I have in my personal collection.

 

Don't think anyone mentioned Baby Bitch, from Ween. If you're still wanting to wallow, keep their later release of 'If You Could Save Yourself (You'd Save Us All)' in mind.

 

ETA more fun.

 

Cake covers "I will survive" and manages to incorporate "the 'F' word". Yum.

 

And for totally wrong, wrong, wrong, "Lift your head up high...." by The Bloodhound Gang. Totally immature, jocular, the stuff I generally despise, but! oh-so cathartic. Likely triggering for anyone with a reasonable level of sanity left.

I love Pink's "Funhouse" CD, perfect since she wrote it when she was getting divorced. It's sweet and feisty and awesome.

 

One CD that makes me weep like a baby for nearly all of it is Alanis Morrisette's "Flavors of Entanglement" that she wrote after breaking up with Ryan Reynolds - there's such heartbreak there mingled with such hope - Not As We, Torch, Incomplete. I can listen to it now with mostly hope and nostalgia but there have been many times in the last few years when I'd start listening to it and get sucker punched in the guts by the grief.
