Songs of Recrimination, Remorse, Revenge, and Regret

Back when I was doing my alternative country show, I used to do an anti-Valentines Day show every year featuring "songs of recrimination, remorse, revenge, and regret". Well, I have a girlfriend now, but a friend from the good old days convinced me to put together a compilation for the blog. So here goes.

God May Forgive You: Rosie Flores
Almost Magic: Syd Straw
Since My Love Is Gone: Nina Simone
We'll Never Pass This Way Again: Kirsty MacColl
Someday (You'll Want Me to Want You): Patsy Cline
Tell Me Baby: Walter Hyatt
I Pity The Fool: Bobby "Blue" Bland
When Your Lover Has Gone: Ray Charles
Withered on the Vine: Nick Lowe

Glad you liked it, though upon reflection, I'm thinking I should have put in 1-2 more recent releases. Oh well, there's always Valentine's Day 2010. :)
