I Choo Choo Choose You!
"Look, check it out, Lisa! You can tell the exact moment when his heart rips in half!" - Bart
Spanning four and a half decades (1963-2009) and nine genres, here's my bitterness playlist. I originally had to cut this playlist down from 60+ songs. Not all of these songs are bitter; some are classics that will rip your heart out like poor Ralphy Wiggum up above. Love songs? Puuulleeeeaase. There's a lot of heartache in music, which is why we love it.
