    I don't know if this helps but my favorite break-up song of all time is "This is the last day of our acquaintance". Title says it all.

    Basically every track on the Doris Duke "I'm a Loser" comp -- written from the lady's perspective, but the anger and bitterness is 100% transferable if need be.

    Otis Clay "I Paid the Price" and "Nothing to Look Forward to."

    "Train In Vain" seems like a classic worth going back to in this situation.

    I Don't Like You - Bo Diddley (piss off!)
    Giving Up - Gladys Knight (sad, but time will heal)
    Giving Up - D Hathaway (crippling sad)
    I've Been Loving You Too Long - Ike and Tina (borderline begging sad)

    It's not raer related, but "24 hour revenge therapy" by Jawbreaker got me through so many breakups. I still get all in a funk when I listen to it.

    not really breakup related, but i always felt better after listening to "sex type thang" from the juggaknots when i split up with them ladies....plus, getting all emo with some rjd2. And of course I followed Chaypecks advice and listened to "Funky Nassau" 200 times. That helped.

    Lee Hazelwood's Requiem for an Almost Lady LP is full of em.

    Also his version of "No Regrets" on his album with Ann-Margret.

  • House is not a home--Luther Van. I played this like 50 times in a row when I broke up with my fiance a year and a half ago in Cairo.

    puts- 'more than you know' is speaking to me right now.

    fuck this sucks. shitty breathing. shitty sleeping.

  • there was a similar thread to this one several months ago. i recently tried searching for it but couldn't find it... does anyone know which one I'm talking about? Someone, probably jaymack, posted a playlist with tons of versions of "get out of my life woman"

    ^^^^^
    truer words never spoken. the future looks bright.

    i'll d/l the mix when i get home...to put another nail in the coffin. thx

  • There was another mix posted in a thread a lot like this, but I can't remember who did it. I believe the first track was off the first Fleetwood Mac lp, if that rings any bells. Damn, I'll have to dig this up.

  • Shellac- Prayer to God.





    (i guess it's more of a cheating/revenge song than a breakup song, but whatever)
