Default Break up songs

Stories (more or less sad by definition) and a song that hit/consoled you at the time.

This is one of mine:
Snowbird

In a sense that is not a good example, because it can bring tears to anyone, no matter what the state of their current relationship.

However, it hit me in December 1970.
I was on a youth orchestra week with Jane.
We had a sort of falling out.
By the time we performed the concert for which we had been rehearsing, I was close to tears. Then from the audience, there emerge two previous lights of my life: Carol and her Parisienne pen-friend Martine.
Cue another song Leaving on a jet plane
They restored my faith in human kindness that evening!

I've never been through a break-up before, but I think "Purest of Pain" by Son by Four would be a good break-up song. I personally like the Spanish version better.

Superb and appropriate song.

I listened to a load of Taylor Swift's songs after a breakup.

Ironically, I listened to this every night of a holiday in France just after Daphne and I got married in 1976.

Let's just kiss and say goodbye
