Chris Isaak - Wicked Games

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you
With you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)

What a wicked game you played to make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do to let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say you never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do to make me dream of you

And I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)

No I...(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
(This girl is only gonna break your heart)

Nobody loves no one

Tallulah by Sonata Arctica has always been my favorite. It's a beautiful song. I think it's compliments a depressed mood well, if that makes sense.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4tK1No1JWI

"Remember when we used to look how sun sets far away?
And how you said: "This is never over"
I believed your every word and I guess you did too
But now you're saying : "Hey, let's think this over"

You take my hand and pull me next to you, so close to you
I have a feeling you don't have the words
I found one for you, kiss your cheek, say bye, and walk away
Don't look back 'cause I am crying...

I remember little things you hardly ever do
Tell me why
I don't know why it's over
I remember shooting stars, the walk we took that night
I hope your wish came true, mine betrayed me

You let my hand go, and you fake a smile for me
I have a feeling you don't know what to do
I look deep in your eyes and hesitate a while...
Why are you crying?

Tallulah, It's easier to live alone than fear the time it's over, oo-ooh...
Tallulah, find the words and talk to me, oh, Tallulah,
This could be... heaven

I see you walking hand in hand with long-haired drummer of the band
In love with her or so it seems, he's dancing with my beauty queen
Don´t even dare to say you hi, still swallowing the goodbye
But I know the feelings still alive, still alive

I lost my patience once, so do you punish me now
I'll always love you, no matter what you do
I'll win you back for me if you give me a chance
But there is one thing you must understand

Tallulah, It´s easier to live alone than fear the time it´s over
Tallulah, find the words and talk to me ,oh, Tallulah,
This could be...

Tallulah, It´s easier to live alone than fear the time it´s over
Tallulah, find the words and talk to me ,oh, Tallulah,
This could be..."

Is there a song called Don’t Let the Door Hit You’re A$$ On the Way Out?? Ha! ;;-P


Some songs on an 80’s tip that get me every time:

The Call~ I Don’t Wanna

I ain't here to hold you when you cry
I ain't here to hold your shaky hand
I ain't here to look you in the eye
I don't want you under my command
I can only hope you feel your tears
I can only wish you'd feel the hope
I can only hope that I can see
out beyond this skin that covers me
Oh, how I wish that you were here
If I could hold you in my arms
Oh, how I wish that you were mine
I don't wanna beg for you no more

Air Supply~ All Out of Love

I wish I could carry your smile in my heart
For times when my life seems so low
It would make me believe what tomorrow could bring
When today doesn't really know, doesn't really know

I'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you
I know you were right, believing for so long
I'm all out of love, what am I without you
I can't be too late to say I was so wrong

Naked Eyes~Always Something There to Remind Me

When shadows fall, I pass a small cafe
Where we would dance at night
And I can't help recalling how it
Felt to kiss and hold you tight

Oh, how can I forget you, girl
When there is always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me

The Cure~In Between Days

Yesterday I got so scared
I shivered like a child
Yesterday away from you
It froze me deep inside

Come back, come back
Don't walk away
Come back, come back
Come back today
Come back, come back
What can't you see
Come back, come back
Come back to me

And I know I was wrong
When I said it was true
That it couldn't be me and be her
In between without you
Without you

Has got to be one of the most gut-wrenching break up songs I've heard in a long time:

The Beatles had a couple of good candidates from two perspectives on the "Help" album!

"You're Going to Lose That Girl"

and

"Another Girl"

My father liked country music, there was one song by Roy Clark that said it all " Thank god and greyhound you're gone"
I know I've felt that way sometimes ;)

I Will Survive...Gloria Gaynor. I played it over and over. She got me through one of the toughest times of my life.
Thanks, Gloria.

GreaterThan3- Listening to break up songs is like self torture after a break up.
Go for something up beat.

The Manhattan- "Let's just kiss and say goodbye"

A goodie Spanish one is "periodico de ayer" by Hector Lavoe. The gist of the song is "why read yesterday's newspaper".

Foo Fighters ' Best of you' was my breakup anthem back in 2008. Anything by Janis Joplin works too.

My personal favourite at the moment is by a Glasgow band called Glasvegas. Obviously the couple on the song parted on good terms and are still friends and go to each others houses for their tea.

F_ck You It's Over

I gave you all the love,
A boy could ever need,
And in this world there's only one of me,
And all there is left,
Is the realisation,
That we we're never meant to be,

F_ck you, F_ck you,
It's Over,
F_ck you, F_ck you,
It's Over,

I've been lost since I woke up,
Broked since we broke up,
Vanished by your heart,
Remember it when,
You promised me how,
This time this christmas things would be different by now,

F_ck you, F_ck you,
It's Over,
F_ck you, F_ck you,
It's Over,

All I wanted was to be,
Where your heart is,
But that's all changed now,
Now you're dead to me,
You're dead, You're dead,
You're dead, You're dead,

F_ck You, F_ck You,
It's Over,
For You, For You,
It's Over,
F_ck You,For You,
It's Over,
For You, For You,
It's Over.

And it just so happens that the Drac felly has included said song on this link below.
(if it taps your toes you could also give Flowers And Football Tops, Geraldine, Your Daddy's Gone and It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry by the same band a wee listen as well. Enjoy.)

Social Distortion ~Ball and Chain

It's a song about purging all kinds of addiction.

I like.this game

Wilson Pickett ~ Mustang Sally

I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water
I like Koko Taylor but Lou Rawls did it justice. I think Muddy Waters appeared with Koko on that tour. I'm not sure, was before my time.

I like Amy Winehouse. ~ Tears Dry on Their Own, Back to Black, I'm No Good.

ok. i've never really enjoyed pop. however, some good people have some good stuff lately. i really like the edgy cynicism and self-deprecating humor of this:

oh, and it makes for some great bullet-dodging fodder.

Please Do Not Go -Violent Femmes

Lemonade -Tsunami Bomb (I think it's a breakup song, anyway)

Memories of Life -Natural Black

It's Good to Be on the Road Back Home Again -Cornershop (but they get back together)

Wild World -Cat Stevens (like his music -don't know about his politics or religion)

Someday Never Comes -Creedence Clearwater Revival (breakup from a different perspective)

Southern Cross -Crosby Stills Nash and Young

Solitary Man -Johnny Cash

In the Light -Led Zeppelin

The Drugs Don't Work -The Verve

Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses -U2

Music can be a sort of friend when there are no others around. It helps to know others have been through similar things -and you can even gain a new perspective from theirs.


I like breakup songs that are positive toward the significant other the most. They also tend to be the saddest.
