i think magnetic field's 69 love songs is a good album for breakups... it has some really good songs about breakups... but it also has all sorts of differnt songs about love... happy and sad. there's a good variety of happy and sad songs so, i don't become despondent & kill myself...

but other than that,
i really like the beatles "for no one" (because really, it describes everything perfectly), white stripes "don't know what to do with myself" (when i'm feeling campy), elo "sweet talking woman" (when i feel like it'd be nice to hear a man sounding sad & desperate wink.gif ), and the beatles "here comes the sun" (when i want to feel like there are good things coming in the future)

Right back at you Anodecathode-just separated from my husband. Hang in there.

Might I suggest that if you REALLY want to get in touch with the heartbreak, try I Envy The Wind by Lucinda Williams.

Gutting. Every time.

snarky: you forgot "sad songs and waltzes" or for the regretful "always on my mind"
Willie Nelson can write a damn good break up song....

Moonpieluv, I've got to agree with you on the Fiest and Neko Case. Excellent choices.

When I split with a guy back in March, I listened to Amy Millan's album Honey From the Tombs over and over. It was heartbreaking, but also comforting. Sometimes you've got to get all of the sappy, "come back to me" kind of songs out of the way before you can do much else.
I also listened to:
"Infinity" by Merrick
"Can't Complain" by Nickel Creek (which had fitting lyrics for the relationship I had been in)
"Cold Days From the Birdhouse" by The Twilight Sad
"What Can I Say" by Brandi Carlile
"Natural Disaster" by Joel Plaskett
"Anthems For a Seventeen Year-Old Girl" and "Lover's Spit" by Broken Social Scene
"Not Dark Yet" by Bob Dylan,
and a bunch of Mark Kozelek.

Once I'd had my time to cry and wallow in bed (for four days, I was almost completely immobile!) ... I eventually moved on and listened to music that was bitter about relationships. Alanis Morrisette's Jagged Little Pill will always be good for this. Then the fun, upbeat "moving on" songs were the next step, and before I knew it, I was healed. "Whatever Gets You Through Today" is a great one by The Radio.

I dig the new Feist album-the Reminder.
Second and Third track.

Some of the songs are nostalgic, as well. But breakup is a wax and wane. Sometimes we're cool with it, oft times not. A process.

Any Neko Case. For love and empowerment. rolleyes.gif

not often a country listener nowadays, but they have the best breakup songs i think - like:

Tonight I Wanna Cry - Keith Urban
Crazy - Patsy Cline
Easy Come, Easy Go - George Strait
I don't - Danielle Peck
Give It Away - George Strait
Every Light in the House is On - Trace Atkins
Riding for a Fall - Chris LeDoux
Please Remember - LeAnn Rimes (Coyote Ugly soundtrack)
I Can't Love You Anymore - Gary Nichols
You Can't Make A Heart Love Somebody - George Strait
I'm Movin' On - Rascal Flatts
A Bad Goodbye - Clint Black with Wynona
What She's Doing Now - Garth Brooks

Welcome AC!

Martha Wainwright works, maybe a bit too well. And The Blow, if i just skip the happy songs. The Long list of Girls from them is on repeat at the moment.
Mainly i just try to listen to MY music, music that we never listened to together. No memories of her there.
I guess i'm still in denial about the whole situation

Welcome, AnodeCathode! Sorry to hear about your circumstances, but welcome to the forum, XY or not smile.gif You should drop by the Newbie thread and introduce yourself. I speak mostly for myself, but I think most BUSTies here welcome the male perspective on anything in our forum.

I like pilfering the songs listed here, not necessarily for breakup purposes, but sometimes I just wanna sit and drink tea and think of The Way We Were. wink.gif

i'm not listening to this playlist as often as i was when we first broke up, but it's still on my frequent rotation. it's a mix of old and new stuff, a lot of bands that i used to be really into when we first met and all. the order is important to me, it kinda goes through what i'm feeling. i also like to pretend that the first wilco song and the willie nelson song are from his point of view. anyway, here it is:

the world has turned and left me here - weezer
please be patient with me - wilco
always on my mind - willie nelson
sea anemone - jets to brazil
the district sleeps alone tonight - the postal service
the last last one - the weakerthans (they have so many good ones)
butterfly - weezer
hate it here - wilco (the last album had a few good, sad songs)
none of the above - the weakerthans
the last lie i told - saves the day
polar opposites - modest mouse
no love - the get up kids
wake up alone - amy winehouse
i don't mind if you forget me - morrissey
if i ever feel better - phoenix

now i need some good moving on music!
