Love your top tens!

Colette Martin said...

Oldies, but goodies!

My favorite new Break-up song is Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri. Go listen!

mybabyjohn/Delores said...

Last one is my favourite.

Linda G. said...

LOL! Great list! I actually like all those, even when I haven't broken up with anyone.

Stephen Tremp said...

Can't argue with this list of classics. Now I have You're So vain running through my head. Love Carly Simon.

JoLynne Lyon said...

I'd add, any song you love and your ex hates. Loud.

Joanne said...

Lots of good tunes here. Love-gone-wrong, with all its heartbreak, is always a great topic for music. Have a nice weekend.

Linda Kage said...

Good choices!

Kyra Lennon said...

Excellent list! :D

L.G.Smith said...

Get off of my cloud! I'd forgotten about that song. Good one.

Liza said...

Oh my gosh. Three Dog Night. I'm in my teenage bedroom and I have the arm of the record player open so the album I snuck from my brother will play again and again and again.

VR Barkowski said...

Ha! Interesting follow up to Valentine's Day, Carol. I have a fondness for "Love Hurts" but I'm a drama queen. :)

Have a great weekend!

Carol Kilgore said...

Gail - Thanks!

Colette - Love that song. Content is perfect, but the title alone didn't convey the feeling as much as these - at least for me.

Delores - Mine, too :)

Linda G - Cool!

Stephen - Enjoy listening to her, LOL!

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

Great choices!

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Great break-up songs, Carol. Hopefully, I won't need to hear them any time soon.

Mason Canyon said...

Love your list. It made me remember the oldie, Hit The Road Jack. Have a great weekend.

Tracy Jo said...

So good! Did you see Glen on the Grammys? He sang Rhinestone Cowboy...it was awesome! Happy Friday!

Carol Kilgore said...

JoLynne - Oh, yes!

Joanne - Cryin' in your beer songs :)

Linda K - Thanks.

Kyra - Something for everyone.

Luanne - Some of these really brought back a memory or two.

Summer Ross said...

I only know a couple of these songs- I adore 'King of the Road'

Laura Eno said...

I have #1 stuck in my head now. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Liza - Wow. Talk about a memory!

VR - Oh, that's a good one!

Elizabeth - Thanks.

Elspeth - You and me, both.

Mason - Oh! Totally didn't think of that one at all, or it would have been here for sure :)

Janet, said...

I love your selection of songs, especially #1.

Joyful said...

I think this is an oldies list, lol.
I know a few of 'em.
Happy Friday :-)

Carol Kilgore said...

Tracy Jo - Yes, I agree :)

Summer - All oldies.

Laura - I had a few stuck there.

Janet - Thanks.

Joyful - All oldies. I had Bad Romance and Rude Boy in the group, but not as many newer titles seemed to fit, so I decided to go Old School.

Southpaw said...

I was going to mention "Hit the road, Jack" but Mason beat me to it.

Carol Kilgore said...

Southpaw - Both of you are smarter than I am since I forgot all about it.

Cortney Pearson said...

Aaah, I love the Beatles! For me, Dashboard Confessional's first CD has some awesome breakup music. Very moody stuff. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I was starting to wonder...!

Carol Kilgore said...

Cortney - Thanks for the tip :)

Alex - No worries. He and I are still Valentines :)

LR said...

Love lots of those songs! :)

Clarissa Draper said...

Those are wonderful!

Carol Kilgore said...

LR - Me, too.

Clarissa - Glad you like them.

Talli Roland said...

Zombie is the perfect pick! :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Talli - I try, LOL!

Empty Nest Insider said...

Another great list, and I always think of King of the Road right before I close my eyes whenever my husband gets behind the wheel! Julie

Leigh Covington said...

Oh man - I haven't listened to Carly Simon forever! I used to listen to her all the time. Now I think I need to find some of her stuff on iTunes. Fun post and great song choices :)

The Golden Eagle said...

I haven't actually heard of any of these songs before--thanks for the links. :)

The Golden Eagle said...

Oops. I thought they were links since they were bolded out--thanks for the list.

:P

Carol Kilgore said...

Julie - Too funny!

Leigh - Good luck :)

Golden Eagle - Slaps forehead! I should have linked them. Didn't even think about it. Good catch :)

Just copy, paste, and search.

Connie Arnold said...

Great list, brought back lots of memories!

Nas Dean said...

Love your list of Top Ten! Thanks!

Carol Kilgore said...

Connie - For many of us, I think.

Nas - I'm happy you enjoyed this.

Kathi Oram Peterson said...

These are great breakup songs. I remember all of them. Boy, do they take me back in time. Thanks for the memory trip.

Melissa Ann Goodwin said...

I am so late to the party this week, but I got here finally. Good list. I Will Survive goes on my list too :-)

Carol Kilgore said...

Kathi - A little time capsule :)

Melissa - No problem. Good title!
