    “Some Nights” by Fun. reminds me of my ex. I got him to like the song, and we used to listen to it in his car whenever we were out together ( and that was a lot). :'(

  • Robyn

    “Many of Horror” by Bliffy Cyro reminds me of my ex….I guess he was just really sensitive :\

  • Celia

    “First Day of My Life” reminds me of my ex. Everytime I hear it, I think of him and recently an ad for life insurance, I think, uses it so I think of him every time that advert comes on the telly. It’s frustrating!
