WATCH > Norah Jones' New Single: What's Your Favorite Song About Heartbreak?

Music 2012/04/06 20:00:00
Norah Jones' upcoming album has been in the works since 2009, when she teamed up with Danger Mouse in his Los Angeles studio for a week-long session. At the time, the duo wasn't content with the material they came up with and put the project on hold, but when Jones went through a rough breakup last summer, it provided her with the material she needed to turn the Danger Mouse sessions into something meaningful. She told Rolling Stone, "I always heard the old stories about how you write better songs when you go through some s---. That sucks, but it's true!"

The new album, due out on May 1, is called "...Little Broken Hearts," and "Happy Pills" is its first broken-hearted single. The poppy number is hardly a dirge or a ballad, opting for a lighter tone that shows off Danger Mouse's Grammy-winning upbeat production. The lyrics are deceptively dark -- Jones goes so far as to call it "evil and f---ed up ... I'm not sad, but there's a lot of hurt in there."

Broken hearts. It's a simple concept, but one that's driven some of the most powerful albums in music history. They didn't call it "Sgt. Pepper and the Happy-Go-Lucky Hearts Club Band," did they? There's a nearly infinite number of songs to choose from, so we're not going to limit your options. Whether it's a country ballad, an R & B harmony or a death metal lament, we want to hear your favorite song about heartbreak. Include a video if you'd like!

    Nothing funnier than sitting in a woman's bar hearing a bunch of drunk lesbians sing this.

    mine is "at this moment". billy vera sang it then didnt have another hit im aware of. the song is perfect though. came out when a long term relationship was falling apart. worked even better when a later love ran from me not believing i really felt the way i told her i did.
  • lynda.appell2 2012/04/11 02:15:50

    I've seen you on several threads being a total buzz kill. There is nothing attractive about a troll. You must be a very bitter person.
  • Hannah RoseyRhod 2012/04/13 00:33:49
    Wth? I'm not a troll nor a bitter person. I'm a young teen. Its just that stuff I like other people may not like. You've never seen me and I bet you will never know what I'm like around my friends. My friend Carmen is telling me what to write right now. I never have done anything to you and the fact that you would say that makes you a judgemental hypecreit. Plus why should you be saying that kind of stuff to people? Like geez. Maybe your just bitter ever thought of that?!?! Haha! I got you there!

    I know but at the same time her music makes me wanna scream!

    It's a horrible day by Frank Black. Also when will happiness find me again by the same artist. It's all on his album "Show me your tears". It's my favorite heartbreak music of all time. I must say I think Nora Jones is over rated and boring as hell.
  • RoseyRhod smartgirl 2012/04/12 14:59:14
    She actually does better with country music than with pop. I think it's too bad that she didn't choose to be a country performer.
  • JoeyC 2012/04/10 22:20:18
    I like this song, but I guess my favorite heartbreak song would be... Lost Cause by Beck. Now that's a sweet song too.

    You Don't Have to Call Me Darling by can't think of his name right now-country western song in the 1980's.

    That's all I can think of right now. I'm sure as soon as I get off of here and doing errands, I'll hear on the radio a few heart break songs or think of some and then I won't get back on here again. Oh, well, I think I named some good ones.
