80 Songs About Leaving, Loss, And Goodbyes

List Uses:

You too can use this list.  Here's the how, who, and when:

  • If you're a DJ at a lame basement party and somebody just criticized your taste in music.  Have your two biggest envoys physically escort the person out and play this list until the cows come home.
  • If somebody just dumped you and you want to feel sorry for yourself because, yes, you're right, there's nobody else out there in the world who will ever love you again.
  • If you work for Lifetime: Television For Women and you need that perfect song for Army Wives but are stumped.  The Stumping is over, y'all!
  • If a good chum of yours is moving away, say, to Nashville, and you won't see him/her every week anymore and know it'll become once a year at best.  Play this list for that person and make 'em feel all empty inside.
  • Funerals.  'Nuff said.
  • Divorces.  'Nuff said.
  • Your high school golf team hasn't won a tournament since Nixon's re-election and, finally, the Freshman gets a birdie on the 16th hole, which was a par 3.  This means, I think, that your team won the tournament and you're such sore winners, you need to play something at the team that was beating you since before women had the right to vote.  If this is the case, turn it up loud.
  • If you're Elton John and you forgot the words to "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road."
