A Tragic Romance

January 29, 2009 at 10:40 pm (Music) (, , , )

You step out into the rain. You turn to ask for forgiveness but she slams the door in your face. After all you’ve done for her? And she just throws you to the curb like that? You’re overcome with sadness. You get into your car and sob, like a girly puppy. This playlist is for all of those moments… 9 songs for the hopeless romantics and heartbroken lover boys.

1 – 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins
2 – Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol
3 – Street Lights by Kanye West
4 – Better That We Break by Maroon 5
5 – Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometimes by Beck
6 – Your Ex-Lover Is Dead by Stars
7 – Overkill (Acoustic Version) by Colin Hay
8 – Don’t Panic by Coldplay
9 – Make you Smile by (+44)

    its a nice playlist but i don’t agree with you!

    first of all you missed out the one and only song. the saddest breakup song every written.


    this needs to be on top of every breakup playlist! in general, besides some expections, your selection sounds very poppy to me. here’s my top 10:

    1. nothing compares to you – sinhead o conner (version from stereophonics is nice too)
    2. cannonball – damien rice
    3. and then you kissed me pt1 – the cardigans
    4. chasign cars – snow patrol
    5. hurt – either original from cash but i prefer cover from NIN
    6. hoppipolla – sigur ros
    7. ambulance – tv on the radio
    8. soko – i’ll kill her
    9. communication – the cardigans
    10. sia – breath me

    honorable mentions:

    the whole “lost in translation” soundtrack, just a genius album
    zoot woman – nobody knows
