Songs for Post-Breakup Blues
June 5, 2005 10:10 PM Subscribe
Recently, my boyfriend of about 3 years broke up with me. Apparently not because of anything I
did, but because he needs to "sort some stuff out" (which apparently means jumping into the arms of another man in under a week, but I digress). Unfortunately, I'm still madly in love with him. Oh, and we're roommates.
Anyway, I'm looking for songs that I can buy from iTunes Music Store to express the mixture of sadness / betrayal / anger / hopelessness / listlessness / general malaise / etc. I'm feeling. Do you
have a mixtape for the dumped?

I'm looking for two types of songs; those by which to wallow in self-pity (for now), and those by which to feel empowered (for later). Bonus points for musical selections which meet both
Examples for Wallowing:
Dry Your Eyes
by The Streets
by Hanson (don't laugh)
The Blower's Daughter
by Damien Rice
Also, sorry for using Ask Metafilter for venting. I'm just... ugh
(Hint: To get the iTMS URL, find the song in iTMS, right-click, and select "Copy iTunes Music Store URL. This is not mandatory (obviously), but it will help me quickly spend money, which also helps ease the pain... Thanks!)
