Songs for the dumper?
June 3, 2013 9:50 AM   Subscribe

While coping with his decision to end a long-term relationship (and being vilified by his family and friends as a result), a friend of mine recently commented that "People only write songs about the guy being dumped. Nobody sings about the other guy." Intuitively, this feels untrue to me, but I'm having a surprisingly tough time coming up with counter-examples. Metafilter: Can you recommend some songs written for/about being the person who initiates the end of a relationship?

Breakup songs written from an ambiguous context (ie. Stars' Your Ex-Lover is Dead) are OK too, but if you list these, please make a note of it in your answer.

Green Day's Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) was actually written from the perspective of a dumper (even though the lyrics are a bit vague about that). This could be good if your friend is having one of those "we had to break up but I still think it was a good relationship" kind of things.

Girlyman's Joyful Sign, Suzanne Vega's Maggie May (pre-emptive, gender trope specific), and The Postal Service's Nothing Better (at least if you also hear the second voice as clearly the one with an accurate view of the situation, like I do). They Might Be Giants' Narrow Your Eyes is about as straightforward as their songs get.

Although the intent and perspective are a little ambiguous, I've always felt that "Following Through" by the Dismemberment Plan is strong breaker-upper tune. It kind of works from both sides, but my interpretation is that the song is about a young man reclaiming his independence from a relationship that while, not bad, just doesn't work anymore and has been weighing him down.

Joanna Newsom's Does Not Suffice! I particularly like that the first half of the song is a detailed fantasy checklist about packing, but by the end of the song the fantasy's payoff finds the object of the breakup living in a big empty space left behind by the person who did the packing and leaving.

Say Hello, Wave Goodbye from the eighties by Soft Cell is definitely from the breaker-upper's perspective (I've read Marc Almond wrote the lyrics about a boyfriend who wouldn't come out of the closet for him), and the lyrics reflect the power dynamic of the breakup ("here was a kind of so-so love and I'm gonna make sure it doesn't happen again . . . . I put up with all the scenes and this is one scene that's going to be played my way.").

I discovered the song first through David Grey's haunting cover, which reflects more sadness than the anger/disdain of the original, then samples some Van Morrison toward the end. It's a really great cover.

The lyrics don't specify the gender at all. You've made some telling assumptions there; it could just as easily be about a girl dumping her abusive asshole girlfriend, or any other combination.

My list is entirely made up of country songs. And I'd keep going, but I have jobs to apply for! (I considered Frankie and Johnny, but she kills him, instead of dumping him. It does go well in the genre of "getting cheated on and dealing with it" songs)

Reba:
Little Rock this is a cover by some people who are not Reba.
Consider me Gone This is more Reba saying, if you're not going to show that you're into me, I'm headed out.
Turn on the Radio (you can sing along while they play my song, how you done me wrong...)
Somebody should leave initiating the breakup.
Take it back He's cheating and she's done.

Dolly:
Something Fishy (He cheated, she is threatening to leave)

Carrie Underwood: Starts with Goodbye

Iris Dement: God May Forgive You (but I don't) Well, he went out philandering, but she's not taking him back.

Chris Young: Tomorrow Tomorrow they'll break up, but tonight they're going to have a great time.

Easton Corbin: I can't love you back

George Strait: This is where the cowboy rides away (ambiguous about who initiated the breakup)
Marina del Rey He didn't break up with her so much as just...left.
Nobody in his right mind would've left her He left her. He regrets it.


And I was going to say "whoever's in New England" but upon listening to that for the first time in years...I sure did misremember that.
One Promise Too Late not really breaking up, but about meeting someone "better" though she's already in a relationship. Sort of like pre-emptive breaking up?

If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot

Lyrics are ambiguous, but GL's wiki article says:

The song "If You Could Read My Mind" was written in reflection upon his disintegrating marriage. At the request of his daughter, Ingrid, he performs the lyrics with a slight change now: the line "I'm just trying to understand the feelings that you lack" is altered to "I'm just trying to understand the feelings that we lack." He has said in an interview that the difficulty with writing songs inspired by personal stories is that there is not always the emotional distance and clarity to make lyrical improvements such as the one his daughter suggested.

So it's definitely not just about getting dumped...

Am sticking to ones I haven't seen mentioned above.

My favourite dumping song: The Honeymoon is Over by The Cruel Sea. Awesome.

Grounds for Divorce - Elbow

Last Goodbye - Jeff Buckley ("Just hear this and then I'll go")

Led Zeppelin were very good at writing songs about leaving, two of my favourites (including perhaps the world record for largest number of consecutive "babe/baby"s in a song) Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You and Ramble On.

Ampersand - Amanda Palmer - fabulous song though the breakup part is subtle, the whole thing is really an explanation for not wanting to be one side of an ampersand. Yes, the irony.

The Way the Whole Thing Ends - Gillian Welch ("That's the way the cornbread crumbles/that's the way the whole thing ends")

Big Empty - Stone Temple Pilots - though not explicit, it's all about being time to leave so I reckon it's a dumper song.

I L U - School of Seven Bells ("I was a fool to think it would be easier to leave than to be left behind" - but clearly it isn't, so this is a dumper song with more than a few regrets. In case that's a thing.)

And for something different, Fire and Iron by Kate Miller-Heidke has someone telling the other to let her go. Not really a dumping song I guess, but it's gorgeous.

Lyle Lovett!

I Can't Love You Anymore and It Ought To Be Easier are from the perspective of the dumper.

He's also got some songs that are from the perspective of the dumped one but sympathetic to the dumper, like She's Leaving Me Because She Really Wants To and She's Already Made Up Her Mind.

(I'm pretty sure there are several more, because Lyle Lovett writes about breakups pretty much every way there is.)
