Breakup Songs.

So, I’ve been thinking about breakup songs  and the gross imbalance there is between (for lack of better descriptors) dumper and dumpee songs. Of course, there are a crapload of songs for being dumped. However, for the dumper songs, they are almost always limited to being cheated on, abused, abandoned or neglected. The songs for irreconcilable differences are few and far between.

  • It’s Too Late – Carole King
    “And it’s too late, baby, now it’s too late, though we really did try to make it. Something inside has died and I can’t hide, and I just can’t fake it”
  • With Every Heartbeat – Robyn
    “We could keep trying but things will never change”
  • Neither One Of Us – Gladys Knight & The Pips
    “It’s sad to think, we’re not gonna make it, and it’s gotten to the point where we just can’t fake it”
  • It’s Over – Level 42
    “You gave me everything, and I’m now I’m breaking your heart”
