Walt's Best Breakup Songs

With Valentine's Day rapidly approaching (too soon for many) and the pressures that come with that, here's my top-ten list of breakup/heartache songs that you could use on someone if you're looking for a "way out".  You can download any one of these and email them to your soon to be ex and break up with them that way.  Of course, you'll be a total weasel but it's your call.
 
1. "We Just Disagree" by Dave Mason
 
2. "With or Without You" by U2
 
3. "Somebody's Crying" by Chris Isaak
 
4. "Goodbye To You" by Scandal (Patty Smythe; Mrs John McEnroe)
 
5. "Always Something There To Remind Me" by Naked Eyes
 
6. "Free Fallin' " by Tom Petty
 
7. "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover" by Paul Simon
 
8. "Love Stinks" by J. Geils Band
 
9. "Heartbreaker" by Pat Benatar.
 
10. "It's All Over Now" - Rolling Stones.
 
Those are my top ten breakup songs. Do you have one that you've used? Next week, I'll have my best songs to get your swerve on for V-Day's night!   -Walt

All-time favorite - from Greg in Citrus Heights
I'm Not in Love by 10CC I'm not in love So don't forget it It's just a silly phase I'm going through And just because I call you up Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made I'm not in love,no no, it's because.. I like to see you But then again That doesn't mean you mean that much to me So if I call you Don't make a fuss Don't tell your friends about the two of us I'm not in love, no no, it's because..

Same as Mine
We Just Disagree - I left that album for him when I left. In retrospect, I realize he wouldn't get the significance of that and probably just threw it out. Another good one is I Hate Myself For Loving You by Joan Jett.

One blast from the Northeast Past
Heartbreaker by Nantucket

Walts best breakup songs
The best song I can think of is I don't believe in love by Queensryche. All you need to do is listen to the words and they will run true for anyone who has gone through a breakup especially one in which you were lied to.

Breakup Songs
My favorite is 'Time for me to Fly' - REO Speedwagon. Although I see it's already been mentioned... I second it! Hangs Loose

Breaking Your Own Heart...
Still Got the Blues by Gary Moore, breaks your own heart even before his voice comes in... and Breaking Us In Two by Joe Jackson, the piano riffs are heart wrenching
02/07/2013 2:34PM
I Hate that Song
Many years ago my bf of 4 years told me he was leaving to "Freebird". Hated that song then, still hate it now.

Down to seeds and stems again, Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen. The saddest lyrics I ever heard are on that song also, "Well My dog died just yesterday and left me all alone"... Guy

Breakup Songs
Late for the Sky by Jackson Browne is my therapy song when I am heartbroken. Also, Long, Long Time and Love Has No Pride by Linda Rondsadt; I Will Always Love You and Little Sparrow by Dolly Parton. Heather Nova's first album has some good ones - Island, Blue Black and Sugar.

Too Many to List.
In the air tonight-Phil Collins. Already Gone-Eagles. The Best of my Love-Eagles. Yesterday-The Beatles. Don't Mind Me, I'm only Dying Slow- Jackie Greene. Go Your Own Way-Fleetwood Mac. It's Been Awhile-Staind. Looks Like Rain-The Grateful Dead. Like I said, too many to list. Oh yeah, and practically the entire Blood on the Tracks album by Bob Dylan.
