Relationships are complicated, and don’t always work out for the best.
Today on the radio, they were having people call in to talk about their breakup songs. It was interesting, what some of the people were saying, from Bon Jovi to Chris Brown, but it got me thinking. Does everyone end up with a breakup song?
When I broke up with my first long-term boyfriend, I listened to “Goodbye To You” by Michelle Branch and the entire Your Favorite Weapon album by Brand New (I highly recommend the latter–there’s nothing like angry girl pop punk music). I think the screaming lyrics in my car really helped me move past the relationship and start over, despite the fact that they were written about a cheating girlfriend and a crappy best friend.
They were saying angry music, or uptempo stuff, will help you get over him/her more quickly. The sad, sappy songs just make you sad. And sappy.
I wonder: Do you have a breakup song and story? There are lots of songs out there…someone has to have something good!
