If Music Be the Food of Love, Play On

Duke Orsino was a dude who was in love with love. If my ability to predict astrology stereotypes are correct, I’d assume that he’s a Libra, especially with his penchant for music and ability to switch from one obsession to the next so quickly.

Lately, my Spotify has been working overtime to suit my heartbreak needs. I have to be careful with the last song that I let display on my Facebook profile though because Spotify is a sore subject between the ex and I and I’m pretty certain that he monitors my songs because he thinks it’ll give him a glimpse into my head space.

(There was some following-unfollowing drama that I discovered recently and it’s something I’d rather forget about)

Hah. Because I am 12 and I like to make it that obvious that I am pining over him by playing sad sad breakup songs for him to discover? #sarcasmfont

Once, I left Red Light Special from TLC as my Last Played song just to screw with his mind.

In reality though (and by reality, I mean my Private Session playlist), there are some songs that should fall under the Default Breakup Songs playlist. Recently, I discovered a song that not only falls into that category but is perhaps the most epic of all breakup songs. So epic that I started crying at the office while listening to it 40 times.

*passes tissue paper around* THIS SONG IS SO SAD. 

Apart from The Breakup Song (so meta!), these are the other songs that I’ve been playing on repeat:

  • Always Be My Baby – Mariah Carey
  • We Belong Together – Mariah Carey
  • A Little Bit Stronger – Sara Evans
  • All Cried Out – Allure
  • Never Ever – All Saints
  • One Last Cry – Brian Mcknight
  • Don’t Say Goodbye – Human Nature
  • On Bended Knee – Boyz II Men
  • Water Runs Dry – Boyz II Men
  • No Me Ames – Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
  • She’s Out of My Life – Michael Jackson (ooooooooh this one’s painful)
  • Perfectly Lonely – John Mayer
  • Don’t Break My Heart Slow – Vonda Shepard

As you can see, true to my age, it’s a 90s-heavy playlist. I’m sure there are more but these are pretty much the ones that I can think of right now. I don’t mind getting more suggestions! Might as well open myself up to more songs to fill up the void that I’m feeling inside.
