We've all been there. . It's not a great feeling.
But help is at hand.
To be honest, one option is just to play Adele’s poignant, heartfelt “Someone like you” over and over again. No song in history better captures the yarning for the lost love, the clinging to a fading hope, the regret that becomes all-pervasive. So just go ahead and click on the lyric video.
To be even more honest, why not just drown your sorrows with complete immersion in Adele’s wall-to-wall brilliant “21” album? Since each of the 11 tracks alludes to loss and heartbreak, there’s no more appropriate therapy available anywhere.
Okay. Maybe you are the only boy on the planet not to like Adele. So where else to turn? Here comes a list of six more tracks, cunningly selected to address the various stages of post-dump trauma.
Stage 1: Hopeless gloom.
The Sun ain’t gonna shine any more…. Scott Walker.
“Loneliness is the coat you wear
A deep shade of blue is always there
The sun ain't gonna shine anymore
The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky
Tears are always clouding your eyes
When you're without love
Stage 2. Is it really too late?
Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me…. George Michael, Elton John.
“Oh, don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself it's always someone else I see
I just allowed a fragment of your life to wander free, oh
Cause' losing everything is like the sun going down on me”
Stage 3: Bitter and vengeful.
Don’t you want me baby?…. Human League
“You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
When I met you
I picked you out, I shook you up, and turned you around
Turned you into someone new
Now five years later on you've got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you
But don't forget it's me who put you where you are now
And I can put you back down too”
Stage 4. Time to move on.
All by myself….Eric Carmen/ Celine Dion
“Hard to be sure
Sometimes I feel so insecure
And loves so distant and obscure
Remains the cure
All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself
Stage 5.Okay, maybe I messed up!
I want you back…Michael Jackson
"When I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces always made you
Stand out in a crowd
But someone picked you from the bunch
One glance was all it took
Now it's much too late for me
To take a second look"
Stage 6. Well, no actually, you’re the bastard.
Jar of Hearts….Christina Perry
"And who do you think you are?
Runnin' 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart"
Lustralboy sincerely hopes that the hearts are just a little less broken tonight.
