I don't really know about breakups, but at the moment I feel terrible, horrible and have a broken heart. At the same time I discovered Pink Floyd and the more I listen to it the better I feel.

Pink Floyd has some great break-up classics. "Mother" is a classic post-breakup feel good song. "Brain Damage" is also great:

"The lunatic is in the hall
The lunatics are in my hall
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more"

Every time a plate drops off or ghosts me, these words always bring me comfort.

Have you checked out any of their Syd Barrett-era stuff?

I know I could always turn to you
Treat me so fine like you always do


^ Especially love these lines. He's talking about having a side/backup chick who will always be around for you after a breakup....

"What a Fool Believes" is about coming to terms with a failed relationship and avoiding one-itis. I don't think this song was intentionally written to be red pill but it's good for anyone with any ideology not to waste any time on failed interactions on any kind. This is in line with Iron Rule of Tomassi #7.


Iron Rule of Tomassi #7

It is always time and effort better spent developing new, fresh, prospective women than it will ever be in attempting to reconstruct a failed relationship. Never root through the trash once the garbage has been dragged to the curb. You get messy, your neighbors see you do it, and what you thought was worth digging for is never as valuable as you thought it was.

Avalon by $uicideboys. Not big into some of the sentimental music on here, it would probably just make me even sadder lol. Heavy metal and rock is my jam after a heartbreak.
