Breaking up is easier with vodka and tunes

Filed under: pop culture — posted by Maria @ 3:12 pm

Not very long ago I sent out a request to my friends for breakup songs. While mine was for a relationship breakup, Aunt Becky over at Mommy Wants Vodka (one of my favorite names for a blog, EVER! mostly because I feel that!) has put together her list of Songs To Break Up To for her breakup with Diet Coke. (I feel you there too, sista!)

Her songs include: “Always On My Mind” by Elvis Presley; “Good Year For The Roses” by Elvis Costello; “Pictures of You” by The Cure (of course); “November Rain” by Guns ‘n’ Roses and “Delicate” by Damien Rice.

None of these songs was on the lists my friends suggested. Over in my world (my roughly post-1990 world) we had: “How to fight Loneliness” by Wilco; “Harder Now that It’s Over” by Ryan Adams; “February” by Dar Williams; “Done Wrong” by Ani DiFranco — actually, there was a lot of Ryan Adams and Ani DiFranco, now that I think about it. And the Magnetic Fields — though a few of my friends thought that might drive me to suicide at the time and prudently left them off their lists.

I’m not in a breakup right stage right now — though I am seriously considering breaking up with network TV this season. But I’d still like your suggestions. What are your favorite breakup songs?
