what is the best breakup song you know of?
=) "let the right one in" by morrissey and "nowhere fast" smiths are good for a little feel better.
for a nice suicidal dose, it's always "i know it's over".
"there is a light that never goes out" just makes me want to die. because of the feelings that died between us. oh man >.<
so share your tragic songs with me! =)

Cool thread!
I've always loved break-up songs, they are simply captivating. <!--emo&:rolleyes:-->Image<!--endemo--> Especially those that capture both the sadness and the feeling of inevitability of the break-up - and mix it with some yet-remaining longing...for what might have been.

So, this is the first one that comes to my mind:
This Love Affair by Rufus Wainwright - one of my all-time favourite songs, so simple, yet so deep:
So I guess that I'm going
I guess that I am walking
I don't know
Just away from this love affair

Also, Days by Kirsty MacColl, and basicly all of Maroon 5's album Songs About Jane - it's whole break-up album actaully <!--emo&:P-->Image<!--endemo--> , but I particualrly like Through With You, The Sun and Tangled.

Well, I'll think of others veyr soon, just not in my best form regarding concentration now...
Color me red when I'm feeling blue.

I LOVE break up songs!!!

He Who Laughs Last- AFI
The Story of Nothing- The Aquabats
I Will Survive- Gloria Gayner
Train In Vain- The Clash
Boys Don't Cry- The Cure
Oxygen's Gone- Die Trying
Words That Kill- Die Trying
Ooh Way Ooh (I Don't Like You)- The Eyeliners
Love Will Tear Us Apart- Joy Division
Don't Want You- The Lunachicks
Saturday Night- The Misfits
Scotty Doesn't Know- Lustra
Can't Stand Losing You- The Police

I am sort of vindictive I guess, so most of those are punk break up victory style songs :-P

Is THAT the best you can do ?

Elvis-Seperate ways&You were always on your mind.

The worst thing about breakups I find is the thought that he or she doesn't care for you like he/she used to.

One of my fave later Bowie songs...


Oh my, naked eyes
I should have kept you
I should have tried
I should of been more wiser kind of guy
I miss you

Give me wings
Give me space
Give me money for a change of face
There's noisy rooms and passion pants
I loved you

Where's the morning in my life?
Where's the sense in staying right?
Who said time is on my side?
I got ears and eyes and nothing in my life
But I survive your naked eyes
I'll survive

You alone across the floor
You and me and nothing more
You're the great mistake I never made
I never lied to you
I hate it when you lied
But I'll survive your naked eyes
I'll survive

People boys all snowy white
Razzle dazzle clubs every night
Wished I'd sent a valentine
I loved you

I'll survive
Your naked eyes
I'll survive
No hope, No harm
Just another false alarm...
