The Ultimate Break Up Playlist.

I was inspired to share my “Relationship Rewind” Playlist from Spotify because of a gentleman who came up with a particularly awesome idea: he created a playlist for a very famous character: Scarlett O’Hara.

I reblogged his post (and now I’ve linked to it as well…I was really impressed with this idea), and it got me to thinking: what makes a good Break-Up playlist?

I happen to have one. When things imploded with the Boy last year, I started compiling a list of songs that were equally love and hate, get-together and break-up songs.

She’s a strong, opinionated, feminine character who, usually, gets what she wants—including whatever man she wants. But she can be a softy too, and I think this playlist reflects her character well.

There’s the “screw you” vibe in Alanis Morrisette’s “You Oughta Know,” but there’s also the “I miss you and love you so much” vibe from Adele’s “Someone Like You.” It’s mostly mainstream, top 40 style music, because I think that’s what Scarlett would be in to. No obscure indie college bands here.

Basically, this is a playlist of break-up songs–because between Rhett and Ashley it seems Scarlett’s got more man troubles than mostly. And a lot of it is her fault.
