Breaking Up Sucks

... however, the songs about it are excellent. I love a well written love song, but almost as much, I love a good break up song. Something about being able to translate the emotions of a break up into a song impresses me greatly. And movies? Have you seen The Break-Up? Cause there are a lot of excellent movies about love, but not very many that are about how crappy it is to end that love. Here are a few of my favorite songs of this sad variety:

Garth Brooks - Not Counting You

I know I'm going to post this and then remember six more excellent ones. But. This is a decent list.

yep, Garth has it hands down! You forgot the old ones like D I V O R C E, Tammy Wynette, Today I started loving you again, George Jones and oh well, you get the picture....I'm old.

Nice dad. "The World Ain't Gonna Stop" is a good one.
Along with "Good-bye my Lover" (I just want a taste....)
by James Blunt, Toni Braxton "Breathe Again" & "Unbreak my heart," Pearl Jam "Black," Usher "Let it Burn" Garth Brooks "I Still Think About you.." (Does that one count?)

I'm sure there'll be more...
