Owner of a Broken Heart

Oi! I suck at landlording. So I am ammending this post to announce the new Tenant of the Week (sound trumpets now)! This week's blog is Northern Bound. Now, I have been admiring this blog for some time. It's pretty, really pretty. It's well organized, and has Chibi-like thingies all over it. My only issue: I have no freaking clue what the blog is about 99% of the time. I think this is intentional though. She has Beginner's D&D Class (no nothing sexual, the game dumbass, Dungeons and Dragons), which is one of those things I have a love/hate of. I am inwardly replused by the idea of D&D, but I am also somewhat jealous that I am not involved. It's like a geek-meeting, and apparently I'm just not geeky enough to get invited. That's my issue, not hers. I assume she is female cos I can't actually find a screen name. Aren't you intrigued now? Isn't this just all mysterious??? Yeah it is, go check her out. My poor renters have been getting screwed lately. Ya'll used to always click on them, and now not so much, this makes me sad, are we breaking up???????

Songs to survive a break up to… Inspired by Michael’s Breaking Up is As Easy as 123. This isn't just a list to cry to. It's a list to stalk to, to pine with, it's a list for anyone who's desperately wanting. It's 100 or so odd songs. Ranges from the 30's through to today, just to prove how fucked up and diverse my musical tastes are. Some have album titles, others don't. It's called google if you need to know that badly.

Why now? For those of us in the single boat, well we need something to make us remember why we keep trying. It's the pain stupid. Plus it's Valentine's Day, and well, it's a good time to remember love's lost, love's squashed, and love's run away from like a screaming child runs from a clown at a birthday party. Enjoy!

Not a bad list - I mean the Church & Goran Kralj (thanks to you that song will make me bawl until the day I die)? That is some music to slit your wrists to.

My additions:
*Depeche Mode, Only When I lose myself
*Something by the Counting Crows before they sucked. Im thinking Anna Begins or Horsedreamers Blues.
*Harry Chapin, Taxi
*Jann Arden, Insensitive
*Peter Gabriel, Blood of Eden (Live Version)
*Prescence, Far far away from my heart
*Marry Me Jane, You didnt kiss me
*Bonnie Raitt, I can't make you love me
*Black Lab, Keep Myself Awake
*Goo Goo Dolls, Acoustic #3
*Rolling Stones, Wild Horses

And after all that now Ive bummed myself out. Happy Anti V-Day Girl!

PS - I think Trip on love is an Abra Moore song

Happy V-Day anyway! I totally hated the holiday when I was single adn during my first marriage. Now I use it as an excuse to make frivolous food purchases at the supermarket. Woot!

KP: Abra Moore, check. Wild Horses, already on the list (come on like I'd forget the Sundays version from Buffy and Angel and the saddest Prom ever!). OWILM is more of a new relationship song than a break up song. Insensitive-Added.

Croaker: Glad to be of service!

Lysie: I have a hard copy on my computer so I can assemble the most painful playlist in history so the next time shit goes down I am prepared!

Riss: This year I was actually indifferent about the whole Valentines Day thing. THis is a first, usually I'm all pissed off. I think I'm growing as a person!

I missed the Wild Horses cuz of the Sundays thing, my bad. I was just throwing out some more that make me want to die.

You really think so about owilm? That song only kills me when Im single. Alternately it reminds to not justify my existence through men.

Also, the Jill Hennessy version of It's all over now baby blue (Dylan) isn't bad. It's a good assertive dumping song. I played it a lot yesterday.

Great list! I just saw a poster for the Church up at a club where they played long ago, and a couple of days later I see the song on here. Way cool.

I may have missed it, but one of the ultimate heart-wrenchers is the Beatles, "For No One." Jerks at my tears just thinking about it.

I'm so ashamed. I played D&D when I was a kid, up until I was maybe 9. My brother and I went to some gaming store after hours where they had a whole 3D D&D environment set up. I loved it.

And I'd add these songs to your list:
Ever Fallen in Love (With Some One You Shouldn't've) by the Buzzcocks and Oh Shit, again by the Buzzcocks. Nothing better than a bit of "screw you" after a breakup, so you've gotta love a song that ends with "You’re shit" over and over.
