First things first. Take a minute to enjoy the Al Green. Now think to yourself, how does one mend a broken heart. The sarcastic ones out there will naturally say “bypass surgery”, but to anyone who has ever suffered having a broken heart, there is no one single answer. Some people find solace in food. Others in the company of friends and family. A lot just need the passage of time to help heal their wounds. But for a great many, music is the cure for their ails. If you think about how many songs have been written about lost loves and heartbreak, you’ll spend months trying to finish the list. I’m pretty sure the entire country music industry wouldn’t even exist if it wasn’t for heartbreak.
So when I saw this tattoo in the galleries I thought to myself, what music do I turn to when I’m down? I couldn’t really pinpoint a single song, but I’m pretty sure it’s something loud and obnoxious. For others, it could be a soft pop song from the 80s that John Hughes used in one of his films. I’m sure those who enjoy country music have an ample supply. The point is, everyone deals with heartbreak differently. To mtpchick18, music is what helps her through a breakup.
What about you? What music do you listen to when your heart is lying shattered on the floor?
