“I broke up with my girlfriend, because we weren’t good for each other. But all the break-up music I can find is from the point of view of the break-up-ee. Can you recommend some tunes for me?”
I can and I will! Your playlist has recommendations from Jess G., Morgan G., Lindsay E., Emily, Laura, Riese, Crystal and me. It takes you from realization to saying goodbye — first sadly, then loudly — and finally to looking ahead to the rest of your undoubtedly happier life.
