Heartbreak and Pain, The Way Wordsmithonia Radio Does It

Last week was all about love.  This week, not so much.  Today I'm going to treat you to some of my favorite breakup songs.  The songs you listen to when your heart has been ripped out of your chest, and you feel as if life is simply going to end.  They are the songs you listen to when you are crying your eyes out, ripping up the pictures, and burning the letters.  And yes, I've done all those things.  I won't even tell you about the time a stuffed animal went into the fire place with the letters, let's just say it didn't smell all that well.

But sometimes break up songs can do more than allow you to wallow in self pity.  Sometimes, once the pain has started to lessen, they can help you realize it's time to move on, that it's time to pick yourself back off the ground and get on with life.  They can be the songs that makes you realize the relationship wasn't all that to being with, that just maybe, it was unhealthy for you.  And sometimes, when you listen to the angry breakup songs, they just make you feel better, imagining yourself doing every single thing to that car.  No matter the content of the song, a good breakup song will allow you to deal with, and eventually accept what fate has done to your heart, and the great ones will help heal it.

Have you had any issues with youtube lately?? I swear for about a month now I can barely get videos to load without clicking on them several times... or closing youtube and getting back in. I am sick of it. Rant over.
That Michael McDonald song is one of my all time favorites. That Janet one is good too. I love to go to Mariah Carey when I am feeling like this and her song Breakdown is really the biggest one I love. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Ashamed to say that I don't know most of those songs. A good one for me that was actually really a break up song for me was Again by Janet Jackson.

Tammy Wynette is always good. :)

All of my breakup songs would be angry rock songs. These are probably much nicer!
