Twisted Mixtape Tuesday: Empowering Breakup Songs

Due to lots of not fun stuff going on inside my neck, my regular random storytelling may be taking a bit of a backseat for a wee bit.  Think of it as a rain delay.  We instead bring you this program already in progress…

mixtapesSoooooo… I totally misinterpreted this week’s Twisted Mixtape Tuesday.  It was supposed to be “you belong with me” songs, but I thought it was supposed to be “empowering break up” songs.  Since I already had used the brainpower to think these up, I’m going with it.

(Keep in mind that I have not broken up with or been broken up with anyone since 1997, nor am I planning on it.)

There is a glitch with the video thingie here in WordPress.  When I originally linked all of the videos you could see them just fine.  Now I’m not sure if you can without leaving my blog-this happens every single time I try to do this… So bear with me please.

You’ll Think of Me-Keith Urban
Ok, maybe not so empowering, this song just plain depressed me when I first heard it.  I must have been fighting with Evil Genius over Age of Empires that week?

Gives You Hell-The All American Rejects
Such an odd video, but such a great song.

The Sign-Ace of Base
Come on, Ace of Base was cool once… 

You Oughtta Know-Alanis Morissette
I don’t believe there were too many girls in the 90s that didn’t blast this song after a breakup.

I Will Survive-Gloria Gaynor
And of course, what empowering break up songs list would be complete without this one? 

Twisted Mixtape Tuesday is the brainchild of the one and only Ms Jen Kehl.  Do you have some songs to contribute?  Stop on over by her blog and READ THE POST FIRST, don’t just assume you know what you’re doing like I did…

Remember when I said that my friend was doing a post on the strangest places you’ve had ideas and oddest things that you’ve written them down upon?  That post will be up sometime today.  If you’re curious what she wrote, swing by The Insomniac’s Dream and check it out!  Remember:  Her blog is not for those easily offended by language and/or subject matter.  She was actually quite flattered that I had to put a disclaimer up about her blog. And the header, the part about “The Mistress of Words”?  I said that.  True story…

Last but certainly not least, I have a post up at The Epistolarians this week.  Please come by and read all about how clothes are rapidly disappearing in our country.
