Thread: Epic Post Break Up Songs

  1. #1

    Default Epic Post Break Up Songs

    This thread is for everyones favorite, sappy, self loathing, up lifting, wallowing in pity because you'll never love again post break up theme songs.

    Just post your favorite break up songs, and maybe we can into some stories to really make us remember old heartbreaks and hate ourselves all over again.

    These songs soundtracked my break-up (and made me feel a whole lot better in the end):





    I also listened to a ton of the Cure that summer. The day I broke up with this girl I went to Rasputin and just looked around aimlessly for two hours. I was fucking miserable. It is funny to me, in retrospect, that I went to a record store for comfort. Maybe I have a problem.

    Tangled Up in Blue is one my favorite songs ever...never listened to the lyrics close enough to realize it's a break up song, ha.

    I thought this song was not about breaking up for the longest time. Derp.

    Alright you guys, I'll admit I had ulterior motives in starting this thread. I broke up with my sort of long term girlfriend this morning, and it was super shitty. Spent the rest of the day feeling like a huge asshole.

    Thanks for the tunes, everyone.

    ZachTheEskimo apparently fails at relationships AND at picking the appropriate post-breakup Mountain Goats song. Rough day.

    Interestingly enough, it was picking the wrong Mountain Goats song on her part that lead to this break up.

    /notreally.

    Thus ending the relationship, making it a failure.

    Hah. No. He wrote the Get Lonely album after an epic break up though.

    Mountain Goats sing about divorce and death metal.

    And then there's Wilco. Another good band for break-ups:
