I heard the song Sitting, Waiting, Wishing by Jack Johnson on the radio today (one of my faves from him) and it struck me as being very similar to a break up a friend of mine is going through. And then I realized it was also sort of my break up song with my ex before I met Darling Husband. With a previous ex my song was “Why didn’t you call me?” by Macy Gray.
I mentioned this to Darling Husband and he looked at me like I was nuts. Every girl I know does this, but apparently guys don’t know that we do this. He’s very confused right now and I find it sort of funny. I tried to explain that it sort of gives you strength and something to cry or sing or sing-scream to. I’m pretty sure he thinks I’m crazy. Or that women are crazy. Or both…

I have one for every break up I’ve been in, lol.

I did have one. It was “Too little, Too late” by JoJo :S.

Darling Husband says that no man in the history of time has had a “break up song”. LOL! He’s probably right about that 😉

Yep…there was a time when I really related to Brad Paisley’s I’ll Take You Back (the title doesn’t sound like a break up song, but it definitely is!)

I have different songs for different times in my life. Someday You Will Be Loved by: Death Cab For Cutie still gets to me to this day.

Ummm, not for each specific breakup, but I have amassed a near soundtrack of breakup/girl power anthems that got me through the tough times. Now when I hear one, I sing out loud with a happy heart because those breakups led me to ‘the one’ I’m going to marry…YAY!

My first (& only) breakup before Mr. Jaguar was back in 2000 – and the song ‘You Know What’ by Craig David totally fits that. Well, it fit it back then.

I guess I don’t really have a break up song, but man, I have songs that take me right back to certain boys. “Collide” by Howie Day takes me right back to my douche nozzle of an ex.

I only had one break up, but I had a whole break up playlist 😛 (it didn’t help that my ex was into music and so a ton of songs reminded me of him). It also depended on where I was at emotionally….I had a list of “I’m-angry-and-this-is-your-loss” songs and then more sappy “I’m-heartbroken-but-I-still-miss-you” songs 🙂

Reason To Believe by Rod Stewart…not normally a huge Rod fan, but this one gets me everytime. Whenever I hear it, I say a little prayer of gratitude for having an amazing fiance, and (knock wood) never having to go through a bad breakup again!
Also Taillights Fade by Buffalo Tom and You Were Meant For Me by Jewel (can you tell I’ve been through a lot of bad breakups??!)

@bostongirl2: “You Were Meant For Me” was definitely on my list, too 🙂

The only other serious relationship Ive been in was right before Darling Husband. I don’t know about specific break-up songs, but I couldn’t listen to the White Stripes for a long time because of him.
