Hi. I`m wondering if anyone knows some songs about breaking up with someone and wanting them to move on cos you `ve already had. I`m thinking of making a mixtape but since most of the songs i`ve got is in cd, i can`t figure out how to. Tape recorders are out too cos the sound won`t be so clear. Thanks for any songs suggestions (:

You can do it with Windoze Media Player although Roxio CD Creator is better.

RIP the CD to your hard disk. For best quality use the lossless rip option. Save the songs to a directory. Then burn a CD out of the directory. Not too hard once you've got media player options figured out.

You want to be sure what format the receipient is going to be able to play. Certain stand alone devices will not recognise MP3 or WMA though more often than not, that won't be the case these days.

As far as song choice goes, nothing sends the message across more succintly than Eamon's freak It (I don't want you back). :twisted:

as for songs:

The Streets - dry your eyes mate

really touching song for guys who have ever been dumped

REM - everybody hurts

this one always brings a lump to my throat as I was dumped when it came out, played all the time in bars when I was out trying to drown my sorrows. although I got her back & we went out for another 4 years (then I dumped her)

Sorry to say this, if your ex cannot take a verbal message, a song probably won't do the trick either. It might produce the opposite effect instead- making him/her even more pissed off when you send him/her the song.
