It’s Monday. I’m not feeling it. I am dedicating a playlist to those of you who are going through a breakup. Music always helps me heal. I have been single for about 8 months, so I did not just go through a fresh break up. I am living the single life and am fairly content most of the time. I just felt like being an asshole and making a breakup playlist, also because I seem to be a pro at failed relationships. Enjoy.
Disclaimer: I made this playlist prior to the consumption of caffeine, which is when my soul at it’s darkest. Had I made this list post caffeine, I would have made my mix about rainbows and shit.
1) Death Cab For Cutie: Your New Twin Sized Bed Listen
You look so defeated there lying in your new twin size bed. With a single pillow underneath your single head. I guess you decided that that old queen was more space than you would need. Now it’s in the alley behind your apartment with a sign that says it’s free.
2) Cold War Kids: First Listen
Cheated and lied, broken so bad. You made a vow, never get mad. You play the game, though it’s unfair They’re all the same, who can compare?
3) Tegan and Sara: Where Does The Good Go Listen
“Where do you go with your broken heart in tow? What do you do with the left over you? And how do you know, when to let go?”
4) Old 97s: Valentine Listen
Heartbreak, old friend, goodbye it’s me again – Of late, I’ve had some thought of movin’ in – Of all the many ways a man will lose his home – Well, there ain’t none better than the girl who’s movin’ on.
5) Elliott Smith: Somebody That I Used To Know Listen
I know you don’t think you did me wrong – And I can’t stay this mad for long – Keeping ahold of what you just let go – You’re just somebody that I used to know.
6) Trampled By Turtles: Drinkin’ In The Morning Listen
It’s comin’ home to you But still you’re gone – When I get home – You’re runnin’ down town again. And girl I’m lonesome – Like the whistle On a Sunday mornin’ train
7) The Clash: Train In Vain Listen
When we were close – I’ll remember these things the most – I see all my dreams come tumbling down – I won’t be happy without you around
8) Owen: The Ghost of What Should’ve Been Listen
What I wouldn’t do to be a ghost like you, to be somewhere new. To leave everything, The way you left everything that reminded you of me.
9) Morrissey: You Have Killed Me Listen
As I live and breath, You have killed me, You have Killed me. Yes I walk around somehow, But you have killed me. There is no point in saying this again, But I forgive you.
10) The Descendants: Pep Talk Listen
It’s not the end of the world Since your baby left you – It’s gonna be okay – You don’t need her anyway.
11) The Coral: Dreaming of You Listen
Up in my lonely room – When I’m dreaming of you – Oh, what can I do? I still need you, but I don’t want you now.
12) The Cure: Pictures of You Listen
If only I’dthought of the right words, I could have held on to your heart. If only I’d thought of the right words I wouldn’t be breaking apart all my pictures of you.
13) Sia: Elastic Heart Listen
And another one bites the dust. But why can I not conquer love? And I might’ve though that we were one. Why not fight this war without weapons? And I want it and I wanted it bad. But there were so many red flags. Now another one bites the dust – And let’s be clear, I trust no one
14) The Avett Brothers: Do You Love Him? Listen
I do love you, I do feel you, Each day and night – But I can’t tell right from wrong, or fear from insight. But you always knew everything and that is what is clear. Do you love him? Do you love him? Do you love him, my dear?
15) Greg Laswell: Comes and Goes (In Waves) Listen
This one’s for the lonely, the one’s that seek and find – Only to be let down time after time. This one’s for the torn down, the experts at the fall.!Come on friends, get up now, you’re not alone at all
