Breaking up (Is hard on the CDs)

  Hello brothers, sisters, hipsters and flipsters, android warriors, Pervy uncles, secret lovers and gay best friends.

A thought occurred to me a moment ago whilst replying to Erika's thread.

It's happened to us all at some point, you break up with someone and then you over-listen to a song that either reflects your mood or pumps you up enough to face a day, thus ruining this song for a while at least.

Know what i'm talking about?

Anyway to the point-

What songs do you find it- A. hard to listen to, B. commemorative of, C. is getting you through- breaking up with a significant other.

Throw shapes not grenades.

Your old pal

Mat xx

  I've never had a break-up. So I don't know. I have whole bunches of good songs that remind me of him and make me smile.

But there was a song that I kept hearing right after we had to put my dog to sleep this summer, and it makes me very sad.

  Had the same thing happen with me, libra. Years back I had to take my dog to the vet to be put down (16 years together). After it was over I went out the back door because I couldn't keep myself together and didn't want to face people. So I get in my car, start it up and the Donna Lewis song "I love you always forever" comes on. To this day every time I hear that song it instantly takes me back to that sad day, and memories of Kolya.

  Miracle by Vertical Horizon - could not listen to this without weeping for six weeks after I had a falling out with my best male friend.

Colors of the Heart by Uverworld - always pumps me up and makes me feel optimistic, whatever the circumstances.

A good and apt song.
