Thanks, WordPress, for changing some things around for no apparent reason. Change is bad. Almost always bad. If I had money and time, I would hire someone to, sort of, figure out what I like for settings on everything computer-related, and “intercept” changes that computer programmers make (just to keep themselves busy, I think), then set everything up on my computer to keep it simple for me. “Dumb it down for the computer-impaired”, if you will.
The reason that it’s better to be the one dumped than be the one who dumps (besides righteous indignation and a reason to abuse alcohol) is that the music is a LOT better. There’s just very few good ones and not even that many bad ones (from the “dumper’s” point of view, that is). I guess being screwed over by romance, or thinking you have been, leads to more creativity. There’s a gazillion good “I thought we had something special” songs, but as for “I dumped you, so deal with it”, there’s (you and I travel to a) “Different Drum”, which was a 1969-or-so hit that I don’t care to hear my favorite female singer of all time, Linda Ronstadt, ever sing again. There’s a bad country song “Baby, Don’t Get Hooked on Me” by Mac Davis, and….what else? Not much. There may be others, but the only really good “I dumped you” song, that I can think of, is “She Cried” by Jay and the Americans. Enjoy:
