    Whilst reading about Mr Cat's unfortunate break-up (chin up buddy) it got me thinking that when you get dumped (and we all have been at some stage) there is always one song that seems to have been written just for you.

    Mine was "Better Off Alone" by Alice Deejay...I hate that song...every time she sang the chorus..."Do you think youuu're beetter off alooone?" I would scream "NO!!!!" at the stereo and turn it off whilst rolling around on the floor grief stricken...

    So what's your song chaps???

    im just getting over a break up so every song has a new meaning but the songs that remind me of how much life can suck are:

    Leaving New York (REM)
    Make It All Ok (REM)
    Falling Down (Staind)

    its wierd how some songs have a different meaning after something happens.

    oh yes, and that crap one by Macy Gray.."I try to say goodbye but I choke..." so I would yell back "IT'S A SHAME YOU DIDN'T CHOKE TO DEATH YOU EVIL B***H!!!!" How dare she trade on people's misery like that...

    Don't forget Oasis - Married with Children.

    There’s no need for you to say you’re sorry
    Goodbye I’m going home
    I don’t care no more so don’t you worry
    Goodbye I’m going home

    I hate the way that even though you
    Know you’re wrong you say you’re right
    I hate the books you read and all your friends
    Your music’s ****e it keeps me up all night

    There’s no need for you to say you’re sorry
    Goodbye I’m going home
    I don’t care no more so don’t you worry
    Goodbye I’m going home

    I hate the way that you are so sarcastic
    And you’re not very bright
    You think that everything you’ve done’s fantastic

    Your music’s ****e it keeps me up all night

    And it will be nice to be alone
    For a week or two
    But I know that I will be
    Right back here with you

    There’s no need for you to say you’re sorry
    Goodbye I’m going home
    I don’t care no more so don’t you worry
    Goodbye I’m going home

    I hate the way that even though you
    Know you’re wrong you say you’re right
    I hate the books you read and all your friends
    Your music’s ****e it keeps me up all night

    Says it all.

    There's a Rage Against The Machine song that springs to mind - something along the lines of ".... you I won't do what you tell me".

    Very cathartic!

    Something I can never have and Hurt by Nine Inch Nails

    broke up for the final time (that's a total of 4 times now) 4 months ago after 15 years together.

    Why is it that even though a particular track can make you weep like a girl every time you hear it... you always seem to put it on constant replay? :confused:

    At least it was Nine Inch Nails rather than doing a Lofty and spinning Every loser wins by old Nick Berry though (that one'll probably be lost on the nippers :laugh: ), I reckon that would have had me opening a vein. Mostly through embarassment :blush:

    The ultimate wrist slitter for the dumped is Frank Sinatra's "Only the Lonely". After his marriage to Ava Gardner ended the singer was inconsolable and went into the studio and basically spilled his guts onto vinyl.

    This is probably the bleakest (and some would say the best) album of his career, with tangible emotion in Frankie's every word and bleak arrangements to match. Truly "soul" music in the fullest sense of the word.

    No wonder it became quickly dubbed "Songs for Swingin' Suicides" at the time of release.

    Play this after a split up and you'll know what empty is!

    A classic splitting up song from Half Man Half Biscuit :D

    we sat and decided as the seasons collided
    that our love was fairly utopian
    if it wasn’t for my pills, my psychiatric bills
    and your unreliable fallopian
    then I guess wed be fine
    embraced on cloud 9
    emotionally impossible to sever
    you turn around quickly and ever so sickly
    I'd tell you I love you forever

    If only you’d give me my Lev Yashin poster back
    six months ago I returned your brown anorak
    but you keep forgetting
    and its far too upsetting
    so baby Ferenc Puskas to you, to you
    Baby Ferenc Puskas to you

    You know it’s a shame
    but we’re never the same
    on account of your stupid amnesia
    through teardrops I stare
    at the wall it’s now bare
    and I reach for the milk of magnesia
    and I’ll die on the floor
    and leave a note on the door
    saying 'this ape has just left Gibraltar'
    and in hell it will rain
    and I’ll say once again
    that I’d stand next to you at the altar

    If only you’d give me my Lev Yashin poster back
    six months ago I returned your brown anorak
    but you keep forgetting
    and it’s far too upsetting
    so baby Ferenc Puskas to you, to you
    Baby Ferenc Puskas to you
    with boots on

    The charmingly direct "Nobody Loved You" by the Manics generally inspires a feeling of utter despair if you're that way out.
