Staff Picks: Operation Splitsville

Your mission, should you choose to accept it…

A bad breakup. We’ve all been there. The kind of split that involves tears, beer, and an inflated sense of self-importance. The kind where a change of clothes loses its meaning. The kind whose only cure is a good breakup song. So, what’s your drug, er album of choice?

So, who’s takin’ on the challenge, Ethan Hunt style, this week? Drum roll, please…it’s…staffers Alyssa, Will, and Leah!

Alyssa picks All Day – Girl Talk
“The best way to get over a bad breakup is with some bold dance moves and profuse booty shakin’. Start here.”

Will picks Dude Ranch – Blink-182
“I’ll let the lyrics do the talking.”
Pathetic – “There’s no more waiting and sure no more wasting. I’ve done all I can but she still wants to be left alone.”
Dammit – “And it’s happened once again. I’ll turn to a friend. Someone that understands, sees through the master plan. Well I guess this is growing up.”
Apple Shampoo – “It isn’t exciting reciting the stories. Of kind words turned hurting when routine get boring…The start was something good. But some good things must end.”
Josie – “I know that everything’s gonna be fine.”
I’m Sorry – “And I know it hurts. But you’re just getting older. And I know you’ll win. You’ll do it once again.”

Leah picks The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most – Dashboard Confessional
“Raw emotion. Chris Carrabba’s lyrics may border on the clichéd and melodramatic, but if you’re in the midst of a breakup, it feels like he’s perfectly articulating each awful feeling you have. The best pick for curling up in bed and bawling your eyes out.”
