Breakup Music

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by FatStringer52, Dec 8, 2019.

  1. Have you ever used music to breakup with someone? Or has someone used music to breakup with you? What were the tunes?

    I've been on both sides.

    I had a lady breakup with me by telling me that when I get home (I was dropping her of at the airport) to listen to the second song on side 2 of Toto's Fahrenheit LP. The song was "Somewhere Tonight."

    As far as me breaking up with someone, I have used two songs. The first was Vanilla Fudge's version of "You Keep Me Hanging On." The other was Phil Collins' "I Don't Care Anymore."

    Has it happened to you?

    I've been very softly let go to the tune of Whitney Houston's 'I will always love you'.
    Bittersweet memories still every time I hear it.

    Almost the whole of Michael McDonald’s first solo album. Great divorce LP.

    There are a lot of good ones, but here's a "favorite" (if you can call it that, given the circumstances).

  5. Whatever muzak was playing in the elevator from the lobby to the divorce courtroom.

    I believe she instructed me to listen to the entire OMD catalog. Of course, I declined. But as she also had an affinity for Sade, I still wince a little when I hear her stuff, even though I adore Paul Denman's playing.

    Before I was married I would just ask the ladies in my life to check out

    Two Live Crew - Me So H****

    And that was my present situation...That usually ended it pretty quickly.

    It was never used on me, and I never used it to effect a breakup, but I do remember a particularly nasty one when I was a youngin' where the sentiments were perfectly described by this song.

    They don't write em' like that anymore.
    No they don't,
    They don't write em' like that anymore....
    I actually saw Greg Kihn at grad night Disney world in 1983 at the height of his fame.

  18. This song is called Ohm Prah Mah Pood (& I still won't believe).
    อมพระมาพูด = put the Buddha in your mouth
    and I still wouldn't believe you

    It was a gigantic hit & if you put it on & your lover has been naughty, they know what's coming.

    If I was feeling sensitive I'd play this before I was going to say goodbye.
