Break Up Songs


There are many songs on the radio these days that remind all of us of someone special. Turn on pop music on your radio station and 99% of the songs have to do with love. This is because the music industry knows that love can relate to everyone. People that just go out of a break up hate hearing the songs of the radio station because they are all to familiar.
