I'm sorry that your life (and emotions) have been torn up like this, man. I wish you (and your son) strength and patience for dealing with the aftermath.

Word, Murph.

Might I suggest "She Got the Goldmine, i got the Shaft" by Jerry Reed.

Also, does anyone remember the source of the "loose shoes and tight pussy" comment? It was one of either Reagan or Nixon's cabinet members who said something along the lines of "The only thing Ni&&ers care about is loose shoes and tight pussies"?

Thanks again folks and keep the suggestions coming!


You can also download a live(ish) version of "Alpha Omega" and a whole bunch of other stuff here. Though I personally prefer the original version, where he plays it all fast and misprounces "Cairo, Georgia."

I know you said no ESAD songs, but "Lyin' Ass Bitch" by Fishbone would be great here...

Lots more live (and fully legal and legit) stuff on archive.org.

Bauhaus wrote several excellent breakup songs...

Bauhaus wrote:Crowds

What do you want of me
What do you long from me
A slim pixie, thin and forlorn
A count, white and drawn
What do you make of me
What can you take from me
Pallid landscapes off my frown
Let me rip you up and down

For you I came to forsake
Lay wide despise and hate
I sing of you in my demented songs
For you and your stimulations
Take what you can of me
Rip what you can of me
And this I’ll say to you
And hope that it gets through

You worthless bitch
You fickle shit
You will spit on me
You will make me spit
And when the judas howl arise
And like the jesus jews you epitomize
I’ll still be here as strong as you
And I’ll walk away in spite of you

And I’ll walk away
Away
Walk away
Walk away
Walk away
Walk away



Bauhaus wrote:Swing the Heartache

Out of her mouth it came as no surprise
Lipstick stained on whipcream lies
I feel that if I had been uglier
It would have been easier

There it sat, blinked and spat
In a black feather hat
And said the rat

Like a red bouquet slim swinger
It would have fit her better
but no red letter
no red letter

But she wants to be a better singer
Swing the heartache
Just for her sake

But she wants to be a better singer
Swing the heartache
Just for her sake

You can't go wrong with:

Brilliant Disguise -- Bruce
I Am Trying to Break Your Heart - Wilco
High Lonesome -- Jesse Malin
I Wish it Would Rain -- the Faces
Not Dark Yet -- Dylan

I had a college course in British Postpunk (this is true!) and when the professor played "Crowds" everyone just started cracking up. It's sooooo melodramatic.

This thread is a fun exercise though. It's tough to think of non-bitter breakup songs.

My recommendation would be:

Ben Folds Five "Song for the Dumped"

So you wanted
to take a break
Slow it down some and
have some space
Well fuck you too
Give me my money back
Give me my money back
you bitch
I want my money back
(And don't forget to give
me back my black T-Shirt)

Wish I hadn't bought you dinner
Right before you dumped me
on your front porch
Give me my money back
Give me my money back
You bitch
I want my money back
and don't forget
And don't forget.


Pretty much sums it up. Good luck!
