A Playlist For Breaking up: A Choking GAll

Is there anything more bitter than an epic breakup? And there’s no better way, short of slashing your ex’s tires, to process fury and heartache than blasting a playlist that veers between melancholy and rage; named, to quote famed lover Romeo, “A choking gall”.

Our team curated a fabulous, diverse music playlist for you, our Renaissance Festival afficionados and readers. It’s a mix of styles and moods to help you get in touch with your powerful, recovering side. We’ve collected songs from the second half of the twentieth century to songs that are popular right now, jazz standards to 80s pop to contemporary singer/songwriters. Click the link to open iTunes in a new tab, or look for us on Spotify or iTunes: LadyFaire: A Choking Gall. Then pour yourself a whiskey, gather all the old photos, and commence to burning them while you listen to artists including Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Fleetwood Mac, and The National.

We hope you’ll find a grim satisfaction and weep out all your sorrow, tomorrow’s another day!

A writer and storyteller by trade, throughout the course of my career, I have led with curiosity. Much like Alice, I love the opportunity to ask questions and look at situations through different lenses. It’s a great way to find unexpected solutions or new ideas.
