There are two kinds of songs in the world —songs about when love is good, and songs about what happens when it goes bad.
If you’ve ever suffered a heart-break, then chances are, you still have that mix tape or CD you made of all the songs that made you feel better, or made you feel worse.
I still have my “Heartbreak tunes” CD, and here’s what’s on it.
If you’ve got a broken heart, see if these help you get over it, or help you wallow in it…
1. Heartbeats – Jose Gonzalez
Jose Gonzalez works magic on this horrid excuse for a dance track.
It’s hard to believe this is the same song as the original, sung by a long-forgotten band called The Knife.
This is the anthem for lovers who never got to say good-bye, whose love outlived the time they could spend together.
Play it as quiet as you can, and his voice is an intimate, pained whisper.
