breakin’ up


You know the only thing better than silly love songs? Break up songs! Who doesn’t love those? Let’s review….

Gloria Gaynor, “I Will Survive” is a classic. I don’t care how many times Cake tries to cover it. Gloria is a queen.

Full Frontal… man I don’t know ANYTHING about this band. But “You Think You’re A Man” is a great song if you’ve ever been burned by a dude. And the fantastic part is it works for both women and gay men… As I found it by watching one of my favorite shows ever, “Queer As Folk.”

This is the original. It’s really almost better. ❤ you Divine.

So anyway, the only source I can find for the Violent Femmes “Breakin’ Up” is at that link above. I think I might actually be the only person who remembers that song at all. But it’s pretty spot on when you’re talking the end of a relationship…

I’m not a Beyonce fan in the least but this song is legit. It’s basically “there’s your ish, get the eff out.”

I have more but right now I want to know, what are your “just got dumped/dumped someome” songs of choice?
