The Queen of Sheeeba [userpic]
In a mood.

Feeling like listening to 'my heart is broken' songs. Started a thread on the dope about it, hoping to gather some more.

Anyways-- here are some of my favorites

What Becomes of the Broken Hearted

Good Morning Heartache

Al Green's How Can You Mend a Broken Heart

I Can't Stand The Rain

And not only for a change of pace but because it's true, My Baby Just Cares for Me

P.S. Does the hook in Reminiscing sound like the theme from I Love Lucy?


When I was in the Marines, a buddy of mine's wife messed around with another Lieutenant (major league social blunder) and I made him a "Women Haters Club Theme Songs" cassette. It was 1991 or so, so lots of Fine Young Cannibals and such. If I ever find it again, I'll think of you.

I Wish it Would Rain (Temptations):

Rainy Night in Georgia (Brooks Benton):

Changes (3Doors Down):

Fast Car (Tracy Chapman):

I Started a Joke (Bee Gees)

I Will Remember You (Sarah McLaughlin):

Who Wants to Live Forever (Queen):

Life for Rent (Dido):

Oh oh.... great!

Seriously, you knew exactly the mood. The Temps I Wish It Would Rain reminded me of The Dramatics being very, very dramatic on Soul Train

I've been in moods like that. I used to have a couple cassette tapes labeled "Blue Mood 1" and "Blue Mood 2" when I felt a need to wallow. They might still be around.

The Carpenters are good for melancholy moods, too.

Jackson Browne's Late For The Sky is, IMO, the most heartbreaking song ever.

Okay, time for an embarrassing revelation. When the Olivia Newton-John song in your SD thread title ("Don't Play B-17") was popular, I thought she was saying, "Don't play these 17..."
I thought the woman in the song was a selfish bitch for asking someone not to play 17 songs. One song was okay, but putting the kibosh on 17 of them?
In my defense, I was 11 when it came out. (I just looked it up - 1975)

That's not bad. I thought she said "Don't blame me at 17" because she was too young for a meaningful romance.
