Do these work for other people? I've been trying to get into this whole 'music as therapy' thing. So far it's not really working. This is the best one for me so far, it's called Life Vest:

Any suggestions or advice to maybe make this a more effective form of therapy?

Well, I been havin a litlle trouble lord
But I'm keepin it together yeah
My baby just walked out the doors
She said this time forever

It ain't the first time baby
Baby it wont be the last
I'd better get the boys round
And do some drinkin fast

Cause she's gone, gone, gone
I dont know if I'm happy
I don't know if I'm sad
She's gone gone gone
I dont know if i'll cry
I dont know if I'll die laughin

Well I'm gonna miss your lovin
And your perfume and your smile
I'm gonna miss your stealin all my booze
And talkin all the while
I'm gonna miss you cleanin round the home
And helpin with my blues
You know I think I'll get myself a maid
And take her on a cruise

It ain't the first time baby
Baby it wont be the last
I'd better get the boys round
And do some drinkin fast

Cause she's gone gone gone
AI dont know if I'm happy
I don't know if I'm sad
She's gone gone gone
I dont know if I'll cry
I dont know if I'll die laughin

It ain't the first time baby
Baby it wont be the last
I'd better get the boys round
And do some drinkin fast
Cause she's gone gone gone
I dont know if I'm happy
I don't know if I'm sad
She's gone gone gone
I dont know if I'll cry
I dont know if I'll die laughin

Yesss, Bad Company! :-)

I clicked on the first post in this thread by the opening poster and thought, "That's not a song. That's just talking layed on top of digital sample loops." This is a song.

Unfortunately, I have nothing awesome to contribute to this conversation. Well, what's on the radio is "Missing You." Haha. What a coincidence.

This particular song came across my attention after a particular breakup years ago. I couldn't stop listening to it, almost wallowed into it. The one and only time I ever did so

A Fine Frenzy-
Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images
You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick

Well, I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

[Chorus]
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images
And when you left, you kissed my lips
You told me you would never, ever forget
These images

Well, I'd never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me
[Chorus]
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So you're gone and I'm haunted
And I bet you are just fine

Did I make it that
Easy to walk right in and out
Of my life?

[Chorus]
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

Sorry, but Lily Allen and Adele are the best comforts to me, not necessarily a break up, but pretty close to it! Especially Lily Allen.

The Plimsouls~Oldest Story in the World

It is what it is...

Yeah it makes perfect sense
Seeing how the seeds were sown
To find you out there on your own
You said your good-byes
You broke all the ties
It struck me dumb
To think I tried for you

Tonight you can feel the season changing
You'll never change
When you're no better than the weather
You're cool
But there's rain in your heart
You're blown like a feather

And that's the oldest story in the world
You lost the key to paradise
That's the oldest story in the world

Did we have it made?
Somehow I thought we could remain
If nothing lasts
No one to blame

But you can't look back
To where you got off the track
And that's a mystery
That we'll never crack

It's just the oldest story in the world
Lost the key to paradise
That's the oldest story in the world
Someday we'll got to set it right
And that's the oldest story in the world
You'll hear it
Again and again
That's the oldest story in the world, yeah

Somehow I thought we could remain
If nothing lasts
No one to blame
And you can't look back
To where you got off the track
That's a mystery
That we'll never crack

And that's the oldest story in the world
You lost the key to paridise
Someday we'll got to set it right
That's the oldest story in the world
Just like a Rolling Stone
That's the oldest story
That's the oldest story
Now you can't go home

And that's the oldest story in the world
Well I don't want to leave
But it's time to go
Where?
Man, I just don't know
And that's the oldest story in the world, yeah

George Benson -- Lady love me
If you're going to break up, you should get it one more time.

KISS -- One in a million.
It's a break up, but it's her loss.

Joy Division~Love Will Tear Us Apart


When routine bites hard,
And ambitions are low,
And resentment rides high,
But emotions won't grow,
And we're changing our ways,
Taking different roads.

Then love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

Why is the bedroom so cold?
You've turned away on your side.
Is my timing that flawed?
Our respect runs so dry.
Yet there's still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives.

But love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

You cry out in your sleep,
All my failings exposed.
And there's a taste in my mouth,
As desperation takes hold.
Just that something so good
Just can't function no more.

But love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

" Seperate ways" by Elvis...timeless....

I see a change is coming to our lives
Its not the same as it used to be
And its not to late to realise our mistake
Were just not right for each other

Love has slipped way,left us only friends
We almost seem like strangers
All thats left between us are the memories we shared
Of times we thought we cared for each other

There nothing left to do but go our seperate ways
And pick up all the pieces left behind us
And maybe someday
somewhere along the way
Another love will find us.....

A good 2nd place song....
ITS OVER.....
(sometimes we have to love, and then forget) .....

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..."
