When I broke up with my ex, this song got me through it, it''s really a beautiful song, doesn''t exactly "fuel the fire" but it taught me that what must be done, must be done, and you have to do what''s best. It''s a sad song, but it''s filled with a ton of great lessons worth learning.

Here''s a link to it on Playlist.com (safe website, I promise).. because it''s not very well known. It''s by Matchbox 20.

As for a fire fueling, I love You Oughta Know!!!

This is awesome too.

Imogen Heap - Hide And Seek. For the indie fans, you can appreciate this. It''s a lot of metaphor, but it''s truly beautiful. This song is definitely my idea of a breakup song, but a lot of people like for them to be a lot more straightforward.

I heart this John Mayer song - Slow Dancing in a Burning Room. We were at his concert and he said he wrote this song during a break-up...the lyrics are perfect!

To wish impossible things by The Cure. *Disclaimer: This song will make you want to slit your wrists


Oooh I have a bunch too, but that''s by far the most depressing.

"And So It Goes" by Billy Joel (total wallowing in self pity, my heart was shreded to pieces song...but gorgeous!)

The entire Jagged Little Pill CD.

"Vaccuum Bag" (forget the name of the band)

LOVE the Continuum album! CAN.NOT.GET.ENOUGH!


I''m going to find another you - John Mayer


Mary J is good too...

Just Fine - Mary J Blige - can''t sulk to this one, get up and DANCE!!!


J. Timb too!

Cry me a River
Trillionaire, Do you know that song "heart of life" by John Mayer? That one got me through some tough times.
When I would think "why, me?" (self pity phase), I''d listen to this song and think in the end, things will be ok.

Honestly, I haven''t had a breakup in a while but I still have those "help me get through the day" songs.

Oh, Annie DeFranco is pretty good. "shameless" - very loud. It lifts my mood.

If we''re talking about the same song, You''re So Vain was actually done by Carly Simon. Great choice, though!

Also, I love the Streets! I''d have to go with "Dry Your Eyes" though.

THANK YOU!
I was having total brain farts, and i even listened to the songs earlier! and i think Dry your eyes is the song i was thinking of.
actually, it described my ex boyf to a T. and so i would play it for him when he would be late picking me up from school.



good to know there is another Streets fan. i might possibly leave E for mike Skinner. possibly.
