Music is a passion of mine. I particularly enjoy putting together playlists. This one was inspired when I needed some badass tunes to lift my spirits, let out a little anger, and enjoy being single. I’m still tweaking it but this is as far as I’ve gotten so far.
(If you do nothing else, please watch the puppet version I found of Toyz by Missy Elliott. Hilarious.)
“I Am Trying to Break Your Heart” JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound (cover version)
“Better Things” Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings (I think every break up would be infinitely better in a dress like that and an audience of people clapping in rhythm)
“Dancing On My Own” Robyn (I love the dance beat more than I love the words…Just dance anyway)
“Toxic” Nickel Creek (cover version) (this may change, Nickel Creek has many good breakup songs…)
What are some of your breakup favorites? This is definitely not an all inclusive list, by any means. It was just the mood I was feeling and what wasin my iTunes library. I wanted to include Jason Mraz’s No Doubling Back and David Mayfield Parade’s “Love Will Only Break Your Heart” but the vibe wasn’t quite right.
What would you add?
