The Ex-Boyfriends Ex-Bestfriends Playlist

Sunday, 23 March 2014

When most people break up with a boyfriend they lay guilt ridden holding onto their old possessions. Stealing sweaters and old band tshirts on the sly. When things came to the end for me and an ex boyfriend I tossed aside his hoodies and track pants and instead I nicked his best friend. We had a summer of searching for new indie bands and curling up watching Notting Hill with a Chinese, it was totally platonic and the only kisses ever exchanged were on the forehead. Musically we were soul mates, flicking from Jimi Hendrix to Bon Iver to The Strokes proudly in the car, I'd burn CD's every month with our favourite eclectic mix. Walking home from school with him soon became my favourite time of the day, balancing on green telephone wire boxes together putting the world to rights as we chatted until the burning summer turned into a wet windy winter. At the time I'd never really let another human being into my life in such a brazen and naked way, I didn't care all that much when my hair threw tendrils and curls over my make up - less face nor did my eyes wince when I delved into the pockets of my past and threw them out in front of him. As the summer dissolved it took our relationship with it, phonecalls weren't as often and arguments were rife. I was devastated.
All that was left was an old battered iPod Touch filled to the brim with no less than brilliant songs.
Whilst my music taste might differ now, I thought I'd share with you The Exboyfriend's Exbestfriend's Playlist, enjoy.


  1. I'm loving this playlist so much! I just saw City & Colour a couple months ago!

    1. This may not sound fair, because it’s not

      But did you know that you can be a guy’s dream girl...

      I mean, you can literally check off every box on his “perfect woman” list...

      But if you mess up this one thing, he’ll drop you the second another option comes along?

      My friend James Bauer discovered this missing “secret ingredient” all men are constantly searching for in a woman.

      And most women have no clue it exists because guys aren’t even aware of it.

      We just KNOW when it’s missing.

      ===> The “Secret Ingredient” to obsessive love <=====

      The really cool thing is, when you know how to give a man this “secret ingredient”...

      It will send a shockwave of desire for you straight to his brain and he will HAVE to have you.

      In fact, when you do this... watch his face light up, almost as if he’s just been zapped.

      It’s that moment when he says to himself “Where have you BEEN all my life?”

      Every woman should know this. Check it out here: ====> Why men leave “perfect” women... <=====

  6. Dear, I like your blog very much, I can get many useful information. Hope that we can communicate with each other. By the way, have you ever used windows 7 clone hard drive ? Unfortunately I lost my partition. I do not know how to do.
