Depends if you're looking to sustain the feeling of heartbreak (we humans are masochistic little buggers) or put it to rest or, for that matter, to rail against it...

I always find late night maudlin street a good one. When he says ''I hope you're singing now'' it always sounds frightfully upsetting.

Two lovers entwined pass me by
And heaven knows I'm miserable now
I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
And heaven knows I'm miserable now

Surely? It just... It just has to be. Innit.

That part, lately, always makes me cry...as I sing it.

How very strange. Not only was I going to recommend this one, but I heard those exact lyrics as I read them. It's a Morrissey song that is wonderfully ambiguous, and I think moving house could mean anything, like moving apart, and your final night when you knew you had to leave.

But there's a brilliant Smiths song, from their debut album. The prophetic way that Morrissey asserts "there's something against us - it's not time". That made me think about how unavoidable and fatalistic the breakup was...

True and also the most ironic song from The Smiths debute album is "I Don't Owe You Anything" because that wasn't what Mike Joyce was thinking all the way through The Smiths! I think Mike Joyce was thinking that Morrissey owed him quite a few quid after The Smiths broke up! Sorry to mention it, but it made me laugh this morning and I thought I'd share it!
