Anything by Killswitch Engage is good for the more upbeat type stuff, if you are the metal-core type! Of if you wanna cry, listen to some emo-punk, you won't pity yourself so bad listening about someone's life who is worse than your own!

White Lion's "Little Fighter" did quite a bit for me


"Little Fighter" isn't atually about love and/or relationships. It is about the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior that was destroyed by (IIRC) the French navy.

I agree. The entire 'Fallen' album is nothing but pain songs. 'Open Door' isn't quite so dark.

Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Simon and Garfunkel--I've worn out my tape of that song after my husband's death. Makes me cry sometimes, but also gave me hope.

I also have part of an old song that runs through my head sometimes, can't remember the name, probably from the 40s--I met the author when I was 20 and can't even remember his name, (memory gone! ha ha) The name may be "side by side"

part of the lyrics are "Maybe we're ragged and funny, ... what if the sky should fall? Long as we're together, it doesn't matter at all" "but we'll travel the road, sharing the load, side by side" Parts get mixed up and only a few words are remembered, but makes me smile.

Another one I love is "Morning Has Broken" nice sweet song, brings out the tears.

Another one that would be great for a divorce is "Put another log on the fire"-- this is a funny one about a guy asking his girlfriend to "put another log on the fire, cook me up some bacon and some beans, go outside and change my tire, brew me up another pot of tea, and sit down here beside me, and tell me why you're leaving me."

"Wasn't I nice to your kid sister, took her to the drive-in show, ..." etc. There are 1,000 different verses to his song, and ones that are easily made up. Great for singles groups around a camp fire.

CD#1

Free Bird
Lynyrd Skynyrd

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on now
There's too many places I've gotta see
If I stay here with you girl
Things just couldn't be the same

Cause I'm as free as a bird now
And this bird you cannot change
Oooh ooh ooh
And the bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
Lord knows I cannot change

Bye bye its been sweet love
Though this feeling I cannot change
Please don't take this so badly
Cause lord knows i'm to blame
If I stay here with you girl
Things just couldn't be the same

Cause i'm as free as a bird now
And this bird you cannot change
ooh oh oh
And the bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
Lord knows I can't change

Lord help me I can't chaaange
Lord I can't change
Wont you fly high free bird

For mourning/pain:

The Eagles - Wasted Time
Elton John - Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding
Big Wreck - (3 songs) - The Oaf (My Luck's Been Wasted), That Song, Blown Wide Open
Dido - White Flag
Hall & Oates - She's Gone
Sugar Jones - Days Like That
Collective Soul - (2 songs) - The World I Know, Why (Part 2)
Ozzy Osbourne - See You On The Other Side

I got some depressing music in my collection.

For strength, the song that has done it for me is Santana's "Everything's Coming Our Way."

sparklingone suggested Lynyrd Skynyrd's Freebird. Although it is a great, and uplifting song, it has nothing to do with either love or relationships. It was written for/about Duane Allman of The Allman Brothers Band after he died in a motorcycle accident.

My all time strong song "B*tch" by Meredith Brooks

I hate the world today
You're so good to me
I know but I can't change
Tried to tell you
But you look at me like maybe
I'm an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet
Yesterday I cried
Must have been relieved to see
The softer side
I can understand how you'd be so confused
I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything
All rolled into one
Chorus:
I'm a ****, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

So take me as I am
This may mean
You'll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that
When I start to make you nervous
And I'm going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change
And today won't mean a thing

Chorus

Just when you think, you got me figured out
The season's already changing
I think it's cool, you do what you do
And don't try to save me

Chorus

I'm a ****, I'm a tease
I'm a goddess on my knees
When you hurt, when you suffer
I'm your angel undercover
I've been numb, I'm revived
Can't say I'm not alive
You know I wouldn't want it any other way
