A recent thread where people were recommending music for someone going through a breakup, reminded me of the movie High Fidelity.
The main charatcer, Rob lists his top 5 breakup albums (and songs too I think, does anyone know what they were?)
What are the albums/songs that make you feel better, by making you feel worse? --->
Here's a few of mine:
Blood on the Tracks - Bob Dylan
Definitely IMO the best of all time. You can listen to it over and over, it never gets old.
Forever Blue - Chris Isaak
Every song was written about the same girl. Baby did a bad, bad thing indeed.
Sings Only For the Lonely - Frank Sinatra
Although In the Wee Small Hours was made after his breakup with Ava Gardner, this is a much better (and much darker) album. The definitive version of One For My Baby.
Sea Change - Beck
This is the one you play while lying in bed, staring at the ceiling.
