    Gangstarr - Take it Personal (1st & 3rd verses)

  • atmosphere - fuck you lucy (or any other name to be filled in)

    A couple years ago I was going through the whole depressing fight 'n fuck 'n fight again ordeal with my ex. M*rs was on tour with Atmosphere at the time and when they came through town, M*rs had Slug change the name to R**ie.

    Unfortunately, I was outside trying to make sure the rest of our crew were on the guestlist so I missed the whole song. As soon as I walked back in, everybody I knew came up to me like "Did you hear that shit?!"

    Fuck me.

    (R**ie found out and got a little pissed. We're still cool, though.)

  • Funny Enought George Michael "Freedom" got me through an early breakup. Now adays I'm more inclined to play "Bitch Betta Have My Money" by AMG.

  • just kiddin

  • Elvis Costello - I Want You
    Peter Hammill - Time Heals (if she deaded you for another dude) & This Side Of The Looking Glass (if you're still pining)
    Van Der Graaf Generator - My Room

    I just posted most of these a few weeks back in a similar thread in that other forum...

    "I need you babe like a pig needs slaughter" is such a beautiful fucking line...

  • I can think of 2 entire albums that are breakup related.

    Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
    Frank Sinatra- In The Wee Small Hours

    You've probably at least heard Rumours. And I think Wee Small Hours is worth a listen by anybody at least once.

    Rumors can be pretty intense whereas Sinatra's is more of a comforting melancholy

    Sorry to hear, brother. Peace, Love, Life, & Learning.

    Massive Attack - Better Things. Some real emotion in those lyrics, I felt them fully when I got dumped.

    You say the magic's gone
    Well i'm not a magician
    You say the spark's gone
    Well get an electrician
    And save your line about needing to be free
    All that's bullshit babe
    You just want rid of me

    Esther Phillips - "Just Say Goodbye"

    It's not really sad or angry, but it's such a great song on several levels.
