Top Ten Worst Songs to Hear After a BreakupYou've broken up. Both gone separate ways and for a little while you feel numb then you think you can cope - that is...until a particular song plays on the radio and all your hard work of trying to forget is undone. Which songs breaks your heart all over again?
The Top Ten
Although Dolly Parton's version is a real heart-stabber. She whispers a lot and her voice holds so much more emotion than Whitney Houston's. - Britgirl
I agree completely, Beege . After all, Dolly wrote it, and she wrote it to be sung the way she sang it. At risk of angering Whitney fans, while she had a great instrument, she never learned, in my opinion, to use it with finesse. That's most apparent in her rendition of this otherwise beautiful song. Let the tomatoes fly, I'll just make salsa:).
Even now, as I type this, my heart aches. The lyrics are a killer. - Britgirl
"Nothing's the same without you. Another day goes passing by, I sit alone and wonder why. Sometimes it's hard, but I will try to live my life without you." - Metal_Treasure
To be honest, when I broke up with my girlfriend back in grade 9, turned on the radio and this song played. - Mumbizz01
"So long, it was so long ago but I've still got the blues for you. So many years since I've seen your face, here in my heart there's an empty space where you used to be". - Metal_Treasure
Oh...I knew I shouldn't have made this list... - Britgirl
This is a great List and This song by Foreigner is a great song but bad to hear after a break up! - Curti2594
I really wanted to add this, but I was afraid if it wasn't a heartbreak song. - Swellow
This song has claimed so many of my tears. - Britgirl
"You tell yourself that you'll be strong but your heart tells you this time you're wrong. You hope that she will change her mind but the days drift on and on... Empty rooms
where we learn to live without love." - Metal_Treasure
This just sums it up: "I can't let you go even though it's over. I just can't let you go". - Metal_Treasure
MT, simple lyrics. And you're absolutely right. Those words just say so much. They say everything. - Britgirl
I had to give this a listen, V :) the lyrics get my heart but the music makes me smile. I like it! :). - Britgirl
"I really hate to pay this toll, should be strong, young and bold but the only thing I feel is pain. It's alright, we'll stay friends, trustin' in my confidence, and let's say it's just alright you won't sleep alone tonight". - Metal_Treasure
Had to add this, Beege , cause I think it's one of the most hauntingly heartbreaking heartbreak songs I've ever heard, even forty-six years later.
The way Laura sings this is so heartwarming. - Swellow
Thank you to whoever added this. I was going to but then... - Britgirl
Ah, V, many many songs choke me. Thank you. Don't mind the traffic if it's one way :).
Now I'm just wondering who added: If You Could Read My Mind... - Britgirl
Oh, sure. You're choked-up about that, but not about "I Got Tears In My Ears? " Gotta disagree, though, Beege . Think it's a great idea for a list, if you don't mind the traffic.
First time Bonnie Raitt has been added to any of my music lists. Thank you. Just listened to it. Oh my god... :'(. - Britgirl
"Oceans apart, day after day..." :'( - Britgirl
"I'm just another heart in need of rescue / waitin' on love's sweet charity." - Britgirl
