"The Pieces Don't Fit Anymore" by James Morrison if you want to cry it out.
And "No Distance Left to Run" by Blur is good for sobbing.

"Get In The Ring" by Guns N Roses, is good for when you feel the "rage stage" upon you!

Captian, that "Nobody knows" is a good one!
I was singing it in the shower a few weeks ago....oh dear.

"Crying" by Roy Orbison is also good.

And "Everybody Hurts" is good for when you are feeling a bit lonely.

Yeah it is a good one, quite sad though.
Are you good at singing?

Had to be done!

I don't just do break up songs. I have a select few that I wheel out (depends on my mood really!)

But they are mainly break up songs at the moment. I find it helps to just belt it out! And where better than in the shower, where it doesn't matter if you cry a bit.

Just a word of warning to all the PP users out there......don't attempt to sing in the shower and dance at the same time. Take it from me it doesn't end well....

After me and my ex broke up I listened to 'Goodbye my lover' by James Blunt quite alot.
Every word seemed so significant.

Love it too Bel Bel one of my all time faves

It doesn't matter anymore - BUDDY HOLLY (My dad is a big fan, I love these lyrics)

There's no use in me a-cryin'
I've done everything and now I'm sick of trying
I've thrown away my nights, wasted all my days over you

Now you go your way baby and I'll go mine
Now and forever 'till the end of time
And I'll find somebody new and baby
We'll say we're through and you won't matter any more

ain't no sunshine when she's gone....only darkness every day...ain't no sunshine when she's gone and this house just ain't a home, every time she goes away

that was on a cd an ex of mine sent when we were living on the opposite sides of the world. i'd never heard it before then once we broke up i heard it everywhere. the floodgates opened, without fail, no matter where i was (i cried working on the tills at makro once) for about a year lol. boohoohoohoo.....
