Description
Lyrical Reflections on Breaking Up--and Moving On--from the Brightest Stars of Pop Music
This heartfelt collection of poetry extends a helping hand to anyone coping with a broken heart, a cheating lover, a cold-hearted snake, or worse. Let the words of pop poets gently guide you through the five stages of grief: denial ("Is She Really Going Out with Him?" by Joe Jackson); anger (I Hate Myself for Loving You" by Joan Jett); bargaining (If Ever You're in My Arms Again" by Peabo Bryson); depression ("Alone" by Heart); and acceptance (Goodbye to You" by Scandal).
Also included are classic works by The Bee Gees, Paula Abdul, Air Supply, The Carpenters, Pat Benatar, and many, many others.
