Awesome, Pissed Off Breakup Songs


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

Needless to say, I'm at the point in my life where I need some good old fashioned, eff you, whatever, I'm better off without you biatch tunes to play on the way to work every morning. I'm sick of the same old go-to's, and I don't like wallowing in stuff, so none of that "oh please come back stuff." I need awesome, stray-dog freedom style, releasing a young man back into the wild tunes.

 

Think "Glad It's Over," but without that second sweet part.

 

I know this seems a bit self centered, but out of all the communities on this big stupid internet, this one clearly has the best taste, and everyone's always steered me in good directions in the past. Plus, it's a fun topic of discussion (I hope.)

 

Any and all suggestions and genres are welcome!

 

Cheers!

Might I suggest the majority of Frightened Rabbit's latest fare: The Midnight Organ Fight.

 

Key lines:

 

This is the last one about you.

 

And now we're unrelated and rid of all the shit we hated.

 

You're the shit and I'm knee-deep in it.

 

It takes more than fucking someone you don't know to keep warm.

 

 

I really enjoy the hell out of this album.

Just about anything by Tonio K. Particularly:

"H.A.T.R.E.D."

"Why Can't I See You In My Mirror?"

 

Also

Sixto Rodriguez - "Only Good For Conversation"

Nilsson --- You're Breakin' My Heart

 

You're breakin' my heart

You're tearin' it apart

So fuck you

All I want to do

Is have a good time

Now I'm blue

 

You wanna boogaloo

Run down to Tramps

Have a dance or two--ooh!

 

You're breaking my heart

You're tearin' it apart

But fuck you

You're breakin' my heart

You're tearin' it apart

Ooh!--ooh!--

 

You stepped on my ass

You're breaking my glasses too

 

You wanna drive my car

Buy a lot of stuff

I've had enough

Of you--ooh!

I'm goin' insane

There's no one to blame

So fuck you

 

You've gotta have your way

There's nothin' left to say

There's nothin' left to do--ooh!

You're breakin' my heart

You're tearin' it apart

So fuck you

 

You've gotta have your way

There's nothin' left to say

There's nothin' left to do--ooh!

You're breakin' my heart

You're tearin' it apart

But I love you

How could I have forgotten that Nilsson song? That's one of my all-time favorites!

 

Oh, and for the record:

 

Tonio K. - "H.A.T.R.E.D."

Now I know it's not unusual

There's nothin' so unique

There's probably hundreds of wonderful love affairs

That go bad in this town every week

(It's a big town)

But all of them others

Them sad-hearted lovers

Could cry in their beer what the hey

It didn't concern me

Was none of my business

I never had nothin' to say

But suddenly darlin'

The table has turned

You have left me for somebody new

And now it's hard

To express the resentment I feel

For the years that I wasted on you

 

But let me kinda put this another way

Okay?

 

Eins, Zwei, Drei, Vier!

 

(*Repeat above with last line

For the years that I p*ssed away on you)

 

 

I'm so full of

H-a-t-r-e-d

I'm bitter I'm malign

You got me

P-i-s-s-e-d Off

I'm angry most of the time

Why don't you

G-o-t-o-h-e-double l

You tramp, you philandering b*tch

I'm going to

K-i-l-l

One of us baby give me time and I'll decide on which

 

Now wait a minute

I know I'm acting immature

I'm acting like a child

I should display some self-control

Instead of going wild like this

And I wish I could accept all this

And simply life

Which includes pain

And act upon the actual fact

That nobody's to blame

Yes I wish I was as mellow

As for instance Jackson Browne

But "fountains of sorrow" my a** m*th*r f*ck*r

I hope you wind up in the ground

 

 

I'm so full of

H-a-t-r-e-d

I'm bitter I'm malign

You got me

P-i-s-s-e-d Off

I'm angry most of the time

Why don't you

G-o-t-o-h-e-double "l"

You tramp, you philandering b*tch

I'm going to

K-i-l-l one of us baby

When I'm sober I'll decide on which

 

H-A-T-R-E-D

What's that spell? (3 times)

 

(But then again maybe with the proper counseling

We can work this out)

I once awoke in a sweat from a dream from which i was forced by a third party to shoot my ex-girlfriend in the head. Said third party had a gun pointed at me, and well, it was me or her, and after what she did to me it wasn't going to be me. Never wrote a song about it, though. Not yet at least.

I love you guys, thanks so much for all the suggestions, it's gonna take me a bit of time to work through all of these-- the ones I'm familiar with, like all the Dylan and Frightened Rabbits and such were fantastic suggestions, and anything else I've been checking sporadically are totally badass; completely appropriate, and for the most part, great songs too.

 

Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

I found this very soothing when going through my divorce.

 

DEATH ON TWO LEGS - QUEEN

 

You suck my blood like a leech

You break the law and you breach

Screw my brain till it hurts

You've taken all my money - you still want more,

Misguided old mule

With your pigheaded rules

With your narrow - minded cronies who are fools of the first division-

Death on two legs -

You're tearing me apart,

Death on two legs

You never had a heard of your own -

Kill joy, Bad guy, Big talking, Small fry

You're just an old barrow - boy

Have you found a new toy to replace me,

Can you face me -

But now you can kiss my ass goodbye

Feel good, are you satisfied

Do you feel like suicide (I think you should)

Is your conscience all right

Does it plague you at night,

Do you feel good - Feel good!

Talk like a big business tycoon,

But you're just a hot - air balloon,

So no one gives you a damn,

You're just an overgrown school - boy

Let me tan your hide.

A dog with disease,

King of the 'sleaze'

Put your money where your mouth is Mr. Know all,

Was the fin on your back part of the deal...(shark!)

Death on two legs

You're tearing me apart

Death on two legs -

You never had a heart of your own,

(You never did, right from the start)

Insane you should be put inside,

You're a sewer - rat decaying in a cesspool of pride

Should be made unemployed

Then make yourself null - and - void,

Make me feel good

I feel good.
