Okay....the door is now closing on my relationship with my ex-girlfriend, as I'm moving out on my own, and away from her.

SO, during these troubling times in my life, I need a CD chock full of songs that will fuel my ego, and remind me that I'm better than that, ummmm....well, yeah.

The only song I have so far is called HERE I GO AGAIN ON MY OWN by Whitesnake.

Any others anyone can suggest? I'm interested in all genres, with exception of R&B....

Thanks!

I'm not sure how well it would apply to your situation, but I find that "Shine" by Rollins Band of the Weight album is inspiring. It may be good to get you pumped up and face the day. Good luck.

First thing I thought when I started reading your post was Whitesnake and you already got it.

I'd go with ACDC Back in Black.

Gosh this thread sounds familiar in a way...

Anywho, Ben Folds Five's THE BREAKUP SONG is most excellent. Also, as said in another thread Weird Al'a ONE MORE MINUTE is also good.

A couple that I like for this sort of thing, even though I don't know that they really fit the definition:

Go-Go's "Unforgiven"
Beautiful South "I'll Sail This Ship Alone"

I'd go with a different Blink song... Apple Shampoo to be exact. The other song that immediately came to mind was Another One Bites The Dust by Queen.

The Ben Folds Five song in question is actually called "Song For The Dumped". (I've seen it refered to with the other title, but it'll be much easier to find with the real one.)

Of course, a much better BF5 song for the situation would be "Julianne":

I met this girl, she looked like Axl Rose
Got drunk and took her home and we slept in our clothes
And in the morning put my feet on the floor and thought
Being awake never felt like this before
And Julianne y'know she wouldn't approve
Talked only on the phone 'cause I had nothing to do
Got rid of Axl by the afternoon
Being awake never felt so clear and...

Blue - That's all I knew
Guess that I was innocent too
I sing a song and it won't be the blues
'Cause I don't miss Julianne

My friend she told me she felt sorry for me
She said the truth would come crashing down on me
That I'd be sorry but the truth of it is
That I feel guilty for not giving a shit

Yahoo - That's all I knew
Guess that I was innocent too
I sing a song, yeah, and it won't be the blues
'Cause I don't miss Julianne

I got my bag of trash
I got my bag of trash
I drag it up and down, I drag it up and down the road
How could she miss a man
Who drags a bag of trash down the road?

This week I feel like I been born again
I know that Julianne would have a fit
She'd find a reason for the things that I did
And gave me credit for the things that I've never been

Ohhh, that's what I am.
Said, I'm not a sensitive man.
I can try just as hard as I can,
But I don't miss Julianne

That's all I knew
Guess that I was innocent too
I can try just as hard as I can
And I don't miss Julianne

Back In the Saddle Again - Aerosmith

Another I picked up: LOVE HURTS from Van Halen.

Here's a cheezy one I uncovered, too: Bye Bye Baby from the Bay City Rollers. Cheezy as hell, but it's funky, too.

That Linkin Park song you suggested is quite powerful....even for a LP song.

Thanks!

"Love Hurts" is a Nazareth song.

On that note, I recommend Nazareth's "Hair of the Dog" ("Now you're messin' with a SONUVABITCH!").

Another great breakup song is Montley Crue's "Don't Go Away Mad". ("Girl, don't go away mad...just go away.")

Also, I'd recommend Zeppelin's "Hey, Hey, What Can I Do?" and (if you want to get depressed) "Since I've Been Loving You".

Like them or not, Godsmack's "I Stand Alone" is always appropriate as well.

The best goodbye songs are the sad, nostalgic ones.

1. Never Say Goodbye - Bon Jovi
2. Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday - Boys to Men
3. Somebody's Always Saying Goodbye - Anne Murray
4. Goodbye to Love - Carpenters
5. Goodbye to Romance - Ozzy Osbourne
6. Goodbye - Night Ranger

For the type of feel good song that you're looking for go with:

1. Movin Out/My Life - Billy Joel
2. I'm Free - John Secada
3. Martyr's Cross - Jim Croce

A great tune. I listened to that one constantly after I left my ex-fiance. "Love Stinks" by The J. Giles Band is another great one.
