Had a crappy thing happen to me today (hooray for valentine's day) and was listening to Butch Walker's BEST THING YOU NEVER HAD song and was wondering, what's your favorite "you broke my heart you bitch" song?

My favorite would probably be "Somebody Kill Me" by Adam Sandler in The Wedding Singer.

"You don't know how much I need you.
While you're around I don't feel blue.
And when we kiss I know that you need me too.
I can't believe I found a love that's so pure and true.

But it all was bullsh@t.
It was a goddam joke.
And when I think of you and I,
I hope you f*@king choke. "

The song continues.......

Other than that I don't think I have a favorite song that says "I loved you and you screwed me". I try to stay away from that stuff, it makes me think way too much.

Same train of thought ... "One More Minute" by Weird Al in the style of Elvis Presley.



http://www.com-www.com/weirdal/onemoreminute.html

Well I heard that you're leavin' (leavin')
Gonna leave me far behind (so far behind)
'Cause you found a brand new lover
You decided that I'm not your kind (aahh..)

So I pulled (I pulled) your name out (name out) of my Rolodex (oohh..)
And I tore all your pictures in two
And I burned down the malt shop where we used to go
Just because it reminds me of you (dippity dippity doo)

That's right (that's right) you ain't gonna see me cryin'
I'm glad (I'm glad) that you found somebody new
'Cause I'd rather spend eternity eating shards of broken glass
Than spend one more minute with you

I guess I might seem kinda bitter
You got me feeling down in the dumps
'Cause I'm stranded all alone in the gas station of love
And I have to use the self-service pumps

Oh, so honey, let me help you with that suitcase
You ain't (you ain't) gonna break my heart in two
'Cause I'd rather get a hundred thousand paper cuts on my face
Than spend one more minute with you

I'd rather rip out my intestines with a fork
Than watch you going out with other men
I'd rather slam my fingers in a door (yah)
Again and again and again and again and again

Oh, can't you see what I'm tryin' to say, Darlin...

I'd rather have my blood sucked out by leeches (leeches)
Shove an icepick under a toenail or two
I'd rather clean all the bathrooms in Grand Central Station with my tongue
Than spend one more minute with you

Yes, I'd rather jump naked on a huge pile of thumbtacks
Or stick my nostrils together with crazy glue
I'd rather dive into a swimming pool filled with double-edged razor blades
Than spend one more minute with you

I'd rather rip my heart out of my ribcage with my bare hands
and then throw it on the floor and stomp on it 'till I die
Than spend one more minute with you

"I Hope I Never" by Split Enz

fall apart when you're around
When you're here, I'm nowhere
I can't pretend that I'm not down
I show it I know it
I've been a fool - more than once, more than twice
I'm gonna move to a new town where the people are nice

I hope I never, I hope I never have to sigh again
I hope I never, I hope I never have to cry again
I still want to beam and smile yah
Happiness is back in style yeah
I hope I never, I hope I never have to see you again
Again, oh oh oh oh

It should be possible I know
To see you without stress
But I can see I'll have to go
I'm changing my address
My urge to cry I have failed to conceal
Life - it's no fun when your hunted by the things that you feel

I hope I never, I hope I never have to sigh again
I hope I never, I hope I never have to cry again
I'm for living while you can
I'm an optimistic man
I hope I never, I hope I never have to see you again
Again, oh oh oh oh...

I hope I never
I hope I never
I hope I never, never, never...

I hope I never, I hope I never have to see you again

Again.

Damn it, you beat me to it. I remember singing that to my sister-in-law when her boyfriend broke up with her. She *loved* it.

So why am I also thinking of "Liar" from Henry Rollins? Maybe 'cause it's cathartic to listen/sing along to. Kind of an f-you sort of thing.

In a somewhat different vein, my choice is one that made an ex of mine simultaneously cry and curse me out when a friend of mine played it for her at my request after she broke up with me.

Tim

The Prodigal - Amy Grant

I face the day again
Against the window pane.
I remain your closest friend,
And wish you back again.
You wonder how I feel;
You think you've pushed too far.
If only you could see this pen
Scribbling down my heart.
I'll be waiting.
I may be young or old and gray,
Counting the days,
But I'll be waiting,
And when I finally see you come,
I'll run when I see you--
I'll meet you.
But still the days drag on.
Why did you decide to go?
Did you only need to see
What only time can show?
I'll be waiting.
I may be young or old and gray,
Counting the days,
But I'll be waiting,
And when I finally see you come,
I'll run when I see you.
And even if
You never do return,
Still I will have learned
How to love you better.
I'll be waiting.
I may be young or old and gray,
Counting the days,
But I'll be waiting,
And when I finally see you come,
I'll run to meet you.
I'll be waiting.
I may be young or old and gray,
Counting the days,
I'll be waiting,
And when I finally see you come,
I'll run to meet you....

At This Moment by Billy Vera & the Beaters (Family Ties connection to this one)

What did you think,
I would do at this moment,
When you're standing before me,
With tears in your eyes..
Tryin to tell me that you,
Found you another..
And you just don't love me, No more..

What did you think,
I would say at this moment,
When I'm faced with the knowledge,
That you just don't love me..
Did you think I would curse you,
Or say things to hurt you,
Cause you just don't love me no more..

Did you think I could hate you,
Or raise my hands to you,
Now come on you know me too well..
How could I hurt you,
When darling I love you,
And you know, I'd never hurt you..

What do you think,
I would give at this moment,
If you stay I'd subtract twenty years from my life..
I'd fall down on my knees,
Kiss the ground that you walk on,
If I could just hold you again..

I'd fall down on my knees,
Kiss the ground that you walk on baby,
If I could just hold you..
If I, Could just, Hold you..
If I....If I could just hold you.
Again.

    Can't find the lyrics to this anywhere. Cant find it on limewire, cant find it anywhere.


He's a jazz crooner from the 50s. Also did an excellent album with Coltrane. His two big albums are available on Impulse records.

"I Just Dropped By To Say Hello", Johnny Hartman (Amazon)

Hope my attitude
Won't bother you
But the day was long
And my mood is blue

I couldn't think
Where else to go
I just dropped by
To Say Hello

Nothing special
That I want to say
I just came
To pass the time of day

I told my heart
It mustn't show
I just dropped by
To say hello

I've forgotten
Just how sweet our love was
Except now and then

Memories fall
Just like then rain
And I remember when

Well don't let me bore you
Anymore
I'm not quite as lonely
As I was before

I didn't want
A thing you know
I just dropped by
To say hello

A couple by a gentleman named Jonathan Coulton. You can hear them both online at http://www.jonathancoulton.com/songs .

Make You Cry:

I drove seven hours
All day to see you
The least that you could do is be at home
I wait outside your front door
I guess that I surprised us both
When you get home youíre not alone
The way I thought youíd be
You introduce your friend
On some sunny day youíre gonna fall for me
The way I fell for you
Thatís when Iím gonna make you cry

Not About You, for the "I never loved you" type:

I havenít thought of you in fifteen days and today I still wonít think of you
And when I call you up and youíre not well I might not even care
Every day gets better than the one before
Cause every day I know that Iím fine without you
But I donít think about it

This one is not about you
You can put that in your pipe and smoke it
This one is not about you
Baby, you can take that to the bank
And shove it up your big fat ass

Ok, one more. When You Go, which is done in 4-part a cappella (in which he does all 4 parts):

Only a moment ago we had nothing but time
Everything lasted forever and you were all mine
Only a dream I know
Thinking youíd never go
Tearing off pieces of myself
Just for the time it buys me

Fold my heart up small
Or break it into pieces
Find somewhere and keep it there
Take it when you go

he feels

While I haven't needed a song like this and I hope to never need it again, you really can't go wrong with "Baby Bitch" by Ween:

It's been a while since I've seen you smile
But now you've come back again
Came into the room and you saw my girl
And you asked her how long it's been
"A year" she said and you shook your head
Said "I'm surprised it's gone on that long"

Baby, Baby, Baby Bitch
For words I am at a loss
Baby, Baby, Baby Bitch
I'm better now please fuck off

What else you gonna say when while you're back
on your stay
Maybe something, maybe nothing, we'll see
It's just too bad, you're beautiful I guess
I wasn't for you and you weren't for me

Baby, Baby, Baby Bitch
Please slip back into yourself
Baby, Baby, Baby Bitch
Go conquer someone else

People say, "How beautiful, how sweet, how kind"
You're perfect, you've got nothing to hide
But I, for one, have seen the sun
And the bitch that you've locked up inside

Got fat, got angry, started hating myself
Wrote "Birthday Boy" for you babe
Now I'm skinny and sick and paranoid
Without a cent to my name

Baby, Baby, Baby Bitch
Fuck you, you stinkin' ass ho
Most beauty I've seen
you come from a dream
But I can't close my eyes anymore
No, I can't close my eyes anymore


Sure, not the most MATURE song in the world, but...

Oh good grief... there are so many of them.


--SONG FOR THE DUMPED - Ben Folds Five--

So you wanted to take a break
Slow it down some and have some space
Well fuck you too!

Give me my money back
Give me my money back, you bitch
I want my money back

Wish I hadn't bought you dinner
Right before you dumped me on your front porch

Give me my money back
Give me my money back, you bitch
I want my money back
... and don't forget my black T-shirt.

----------


--NO DISTANCE LEFT TO RUN - Blur--

It's over
You don't need to tell me
I hope you're with someone who makes you
feel safe in your sleeping tonight
I won't kill myself, trying to stay in your life
I got no distance left to run

When you see me
please turn your back and walk away
I don't want to see you
cos I know the dreams that you keep is wearing me
when your coming down, think of me here
I got no distance left to run

Its over, I knew it would end this way
I hope you're with someone who makes you feel
that this life is the night
and it settles down, stays around
spends more time with you
I got no distance left to run

----------

--THE LAST DAY OF OUR ACQUAINTANCE - Sinead O'Connor--

This is the last day of our acquaintance
I will meet you later in somebody's office
I'll talk but you won't listen to me
I know what your answer will be
I know you don't love me anymore
You used to hold my hand when the plane took off
Two years ago there just seemed so much more
And I don't know what happened to our love
Today's the day
Our friendship has been stale
And we will meet later to finalize the details
Two years ago the seed was planted
And since then you have taken me for granted

But this is the last day of our acquaintance
I will meet you later in somebody's office
I'll talk but you won't listen to me
I know your answer already
But this is the last day of our acquaintance
I will meet you later in somebody's office
I'll talk but you won't listen to me
I know your answer already
I know your answer already
I know your answer already

----------


--LONESOME TOWN - Ricky Nelson--

There's a place where lovers go
To cry their troubles away
And they call it Lonesome Town
Where the broken hearts stay

You can buy a dream or two
To last you all through the years
And the only price you pay
Is a heart full of tears

Goin' down to Lonesome Town
Where the broken hearts stay
Goin' down to Lonesome Town
To cry my troubles away

In the town of broken dreams
The streets are paved with regret
Maybe down in Lonesome Town
I can learn to forget

Maybe down in Lonesome Town
I can learn to forget

----------

(Lastly...)

--CRYING IN THE RAIN - A-Ha--

I'll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me
I've got my pride and I know how to hide
All my sorrow and pain
I'll do my crying in the rain

If I wait for stormy skies
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You'll never know that I still love you so
Though the heartaches remain
I'll do my crying in the rain

Raindrops falling from heaven
Could never take away my misery
But since we're not together
I pray for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

Someday when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain

I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain

----------

Actually, I have a million on them.

This song always hits right where it counts.

"Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning)"
-Vertical Horizon

So you sailed away
Into a grey sky morning
Now I'm here to stay
Love can be so boring

Nothing's quite the same now
I just say your name now

[Chorus]
But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You don't want me back
You're just the best I ever had

So you stole my world
Now I'm just a phony
Remembering the girl
Leaves me down and lonely

Send it in a letter
Make yourself feel better

[Chorus]
But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You don't need me back
You're just the best I ever had

And it may take some time to
Patch me up inside
But I can't take it so I
Run away and hide
And I may find in time that
You were always right
You're always right

So you sailed away
Into a grey sky morning
Now I'm here to stay
Love can be so boring

What was it you wanted
Could it be I'm haunted

[Chorus]
But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
I don't want you back
You're just the best I ever had
The best I ever had
The best I ever
