Dumped: The Soundtrack

There is a used book titled "Dumped" which is an anthology of short stories about being dumped. It was running for $6. I hesitated getting it here in a Vian Vieng used bookstore and when I came back today, It's gone, gone, gone. Anyway, here are some songs about rejection:

Elliott Smith-I Didn’t Understand
“You once talked to me about love and you painted pictures of a Never-Never Land. And I could’ve gone to that place, but I didn’t understand…”
The Radio Dept. – I Wanted You To Feel The Same
“It breaks my heart to say that when I was in pain, I wanted you to feel the same. But nothing gets you really, it’s a shame. I can’t believe you didn’t feel a thing…”
Pinback - Boo
“I still can’t get you off of my mind, I don’t think that we can pull this one off. We shall see, time will tell. What is time? And why does it taste like salt water inside of my mouth?…”
Stars - Your Ex-Lover is Dead
“It’s nothing but time and a face that you lose. I chose to feel it and you couldn’t choose. I’ll write you a postcard, I’ll send you the news from a house down the road from real love…”
The Appleseed Cast - The Fight Song
“We’re finding fault, when you kissed her or you slept with him, or you didn’t care. Now it all breaks, disintegrates. Well this is the last thing I’ll take…”
Ryan Adams – Come Pick Me Up
“I wish you would. Come pick me up. Take me out. Fuck me up. Steal my records. Screw all my friends, they’re all full of shit. With a smile on your face, and then do it again…”
Bright Eyes – A Perfect Sonnet
“But you know that she’s gone, because she left you a song that you don’t wanna sing…”
Vanilla Swingers – Danger in the Past
“Boys and girls that you once knew, all grown up and over you. Won’t let you go. Everything that you pursue, one more step ahead of you…”
Louis XIV - All The Little Pieces
“Nobody knows, Nobody knows that all the little pieces come apart. All the little pieces of your heart. All the little pieces come apart…”
The Weakerthans – Left and Leaving
“Memory will rust and erode into lists of all that you gave me: a blanket, some matches, this pain in my chest. The best parts of lonely…”
Milosh – It’s Over
“It’s hard just to watch things slip away. It’s hard they say, just to see things drift away. Everything’s so temporary, I should have known…”
Amy Millan - Losin’ You
“Your eyes are like burned-out headlights, a little thunder in the night. I’m losin’ you..”
Mata Hari – Love Me Lonely (Beige Remix)
“This is how I get so lonely, I’ve been hangin on for way too long and baby it hurts. A bleeding heart it all you left me…”
Jets to Brazil – Perfecting Loneliness
“There used to be a hundred ways to put my arms around you. Every one seemed new, natural, and true. Perfecting loneliness, ’till nothing’s holding us…”
Shout Out Louds – Tonight I Have To Leave It
“So I heard it’s no good to run, but it feels so much better now that it’s done and tonight I have to leave it…”
The Good Life - O’Rourke’s, 1: 20 A.M.
“It’s different when you’re lonely, the whole world’s in love. Holding hands between bar stools, and you’re holding your tongue…”

Shelby Lynne's cover of Dusty Springfield's Anyone Who Had A Heart is one of the more gut-wrenching ones I've heard this year. I should actually write a blog entry about her new album.

Yes, that book called "dumped" (circa 1997) I think.. I cant believe I bought that book during my freshman year. Haha! out of curiousity and well.. to nurse a broken heart. that book didnt help at all.. it teaches one how to be "bitter" which is the last thing needed by the "dumpheedd" its the kind of book that you'd read when you're just bored senseless and have got nothing better to do. the soundtrack sounds amusing, though.
