  1. Sandy says:

    i’m a daily reader, though not a commenter, but i can’t resist music-talk. the magnetic fields “i don’t love you anymore” is an incredible breakup song.

    sample lyrics: think of me as just your fan/who remembers every dress you ever wore.

  2. Jane Wonder says:

    For a breakup song, I love “Starting Now” by Ingrid Michaelson.

  3. curious says:

    A favorite song from one of my favorite bands is also an amazing breakup song!

    Beautiful South – A Little Time

  4. amber says:

    For some reason I’ve always loved Prince’s Purple Rain for break-ups. Maybe because it’s Prince, maybe because it’s a sexy song, or maybe because I like the message of it. It’s best when listened to on repeat ;)

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway! All of those goodies look awesome and I’m super glad V-day is over too.

  5. Tiffany says:

    Dashboard Confessional makes for great breakup songs. My two favorites are:

    Screaming Infidelities – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLapP04xtJU

    Standard Lines – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CCG2PbI6Uo

    This is a great giveaway because even if I don’t win, I just discovered many more awesome breakup songs!

  6. Anne Docherty says:

    How about Too Bad by Doug and The Slugs.

  7. Wise Diva says:

    Sunshine Anderson – Heard it all before. I so LOVE the bitterness and snark that this song has, LOL

  8. Tamara says:

    ‘valediction’ by the foreign exchange

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5Uz9tf8ezc

    packs quite a punch in the 2 minutes that it lasts.

  9. pups4me says:

    Kate Bush’s ‘This Woman’s Work’ is my favorite.

  10. SecretSquirrel says:

    You can crawl back home, say you were wrong;
    Stand out in the yard and cry all night long.
    Well, go ahead and water the lawn:
    My give-a-damn’s busted.

    My Give a Damn’s Busted by Jo Dee Messina

  11. I will always love you by Whitney Houston..

  12. I’m not Okay by My Chemical Romance ;)

  13. RVASarah says:

    My favorite breakup song is Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me.”
    The title says it all.

  14. Kate Morris says:

    I have 2 currently:

    “Songs Like This” by Carrie Underwood
    “Want” by Natalie Imbruglia

    Few More:
    How Can You Mend a Broken Heart – Al Green
    You Won’t Find This – Carrie Underwood
    Bleeding Love – Leona Lewis
    Goodbye to You – Michelle Branch
    Cry – Kelly Clarkson
    Regret – LeToya
    How – Katherine McPhee

    Yes, it’s been a rough year …

  15. JustJon says:

    The Break Up Song (They Don’t Write ‘Em) by Greg Kihn

    :)

  16. Mellis says:

    Sooner or Later by Michelle Branch because living (extremely) well is the best revenge. :) And nothing feels better than to have them eating out of the palm of your hand, lusting after you, when you know you no longer want them.

  17. Matt Savage says:

    Hmmm, I actually think “The Breakup Song” by Greg Kihn is one of my favorites, it’s just so catchy and 80ish :)

  18. Erin says:

    “Woke Up New” by The Mountain Goats is so spot-on that it wrings my stomach to hear it. I would never recommend this song to anyone who is actually going through a break-up, but it sings the hurt even more truly than my own memory does.

    “Song for the Dumped” is a little more upbeat. “Smile” by Lily Allen isn’t a work of musical genius, but it’s how you hope things will turn out when you get screwed.

    Honestly, I like listening to the end of Stravinsky’s Firebird after a break up because it makes me want to go outside and have new experiences in a world that’s bigger than any one heartbreaker. It sounds motivational-speaker cheesy, I know. But that’s how the music makes me feel!

  19. AOC Johnny says:

    OK Simone Here is the winner!! Try not to cry I almost did the first time I heard it live.

  20. Starangel82 says:

    You Oughta Know – Alanis Morrisette

    Angry rocker chick. My favorite line is ‘when I scratch my nails down someone else’s back I hope you feel it’

  21. AC says:

    Aerosmith – Cryin’

  23. Alex says:

    My favorite breakup song is “Bury It’ by Yahzarah

  24. Ashley says:

    My favorite breakup song is Avril Lavigne “Girlfriend”. It know it is a non-traditional breakup song, but I love it!

  25. Nadia says:

    “Here without you” by 3 Doors Down

  26. Nadia says:

    Joy Williams – “speaking a dead language”

  27. Sam says:

    I’m surprised no one has mentioned the obvious – “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor! Actually, the cover by Cake is really, really good too. A little rougher around the edges.

  28. Shannia says:

    Keep Bleeding Love from Leona Lewis
    I listened to that song on repeat and cried myself silly when i broke up with the ex.

  29. Maria says:

    “Don’t Dream it’s Over” by Crowded House

  30. em says:

    “Oh, does she love you
    What do you want to do?
    Does she need you like I do?
    Do you love her?
    Is she good for you?
    Does she hold you like I do?
    Do you want me?
    Should I leave? ”
    :S :S :S

  31. Naazia says:

    great breakup song… “Irreplaceable” by Beyonce. awesome giveaway!

  32. Rebekah says:

    Smile – Lily Allen.

  33. Rebekah says:

    dude i love the stars. that song was on my playlist this morning. excellent taste.

  34. Emily says:

    My ultimate break up song is Kellie Pickler- Best Days of Your Life. Def makes you feel better and the video is great!!

  35. maureen says:

    Carrie Underwood–Before He Cheats.
    One from some yrs ago is Pat Benatar –Love is A Battlefield.

  36. Chelsey says:

    I am a huge fan of:

    “Get Over It” – OK GO

    The angry songs helped me get over my bad break up more quickly :-)

  37. jackie says:

    ex factor by lauryn hill
    love you should have come over by jeff buckley
    i can’t make you love me by bonnie rait

  38. Damiella says:

    Hm, I had to mull this one for a bit, but the one that really sticks with me is “Love is Blindness” by U2.

  39. Beth says:

    William Fitzsimmons’ “Just Not Each Other”.

  40. Over It-Katherine Mcphee

  41. Stephanie says:

    Definitely “Since You’ve Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson.

  42. Ross Felix says:

    I’d rather talk about happy songs instead of break up songs, but I do live in the real world.

    My favorite “mean spirited” break up song is “Don’t Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)”

    Runner up: Meatloaf’s “Two out of three ain’t bad.”

  43. Danielle says:

    The last bad breakup I just remember driving in my car listening to Sinead O’ Connor’s “Nothing Compares to You” and crying. Pathetic? Yes. Theraputic? Absolutely.

  44. Deanna G. says:

    I like “Since You’ve Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson! Such a good song :)

  45. Sara says:

    “Think of You (Empty Room)” by Every Avenue is awesome — it’s fast enough to be an angry breakout song but slow enough to cry to. All the perks of a breakup song all wrapped up into one catchy little package! :)

  46. DateDaily says:

    Heartless by Kanye West, yes, he’s a douche, but the song is a phenomenal one.

    Lyric: You run and tell your friends that you’re leaving me, they say that they don’t see what you see in me, you wait a couple months then you gon’ see, you’ll never find nobody better than me

  47. Jazmine Estacio says:

    All time favorite has been “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morrisette.

    and recently, I love “Before He Cheats” by Carrie Underwood.

    Those are great anger songs.

    But for a good tear up, I listen to “Foolish Games” by Jewel.

  48. Simone Grant says:
