“Feel Sorry For Yourself (But Not Forever)” Basque playlist

PlugsUnless you are one of those lucky people (ugh), you’ve probably gone through it. You know, that sucky time when someone doesn’t love you anymore (or back, either way), or doesn’t notice you at all, or they notice you for a while but then they dump you. It’s not fun.

We’ve all seen, too, the after-the-break-up, ice-cream-eating scenes in almost every chick-flick, and cried our eyes out playing “All By Myself” (or possibly “Vivir así es morir de amor“, if you speak Spanish) and lean towards cheesiness.

Well, I was thinking. If you’re going to be laying on the sofa playing sad break-up songs for hours at a time, getting acquainted with that big-ass box of Kleenex, you might as well learn some Basque while you’re at it.

I’m always looking at the bright side of life, so, let’s make the best of a crappy time!

Chico’s “Feel Sorry For Yourself (But Not Forever)” Basque playlist

1. Musturrek sartunde (Gatibu) – Lyrics
– Because it might be fun at the beginning, but it’s wrong and it will screw you up in the end.

2. Zure begiek (Mikel Markez) – Lyrics
– Because before you realize you’d ended up screwed, you fell for the guy/girl.

3. Zoramena (Gatibu) – Lyrics
– Same as number 2, but you’re feeling frisky.

4. Bihar (Ken Zazpi) – Lyrics
– Things are not going awesome (obviously, nothing good comes out of “Musturrek sartunde”), and even though you know you’re screwed (don’t deny it), you’re still trying to resist it.

5. Pailazo (Gatibu) – Lyrics
– That’s how you feel when you start to realize how screwed you are.

6. Ikusi Arte (Berri Txarrak) – Lyrics
– You FINALLY realized you’re screwed and you’re mad!

7. Zure Doinua (Lain) – Lyrics
– Time has passed since you realized you’re screwed, and you are more rational about it.

8. Ilargia (Ken Zazpi) – Lyrics
– You are over being screwed and decide to move on.

9. Ezer ez da betiko (Ken Zazpi) – Lyrics, and 10. Aitormena (Hertzainak) – Lyrics
– Because it’s true. Deal with it.

10. Aitormena (Hertzainak) – Lyrics
– You have moved on. Finally! Jesus… I thought I had to go on forever and ever with this playlist!

11. Txoria Txori* (Mikel Laboa) – Lyrics
– Because sometimes, even after going through the previous range of emotions, damn it, you’re still in love with that person.

12. Jo Ta Ke (Su Ta Gar) – Lyrics
– You’ve been wallowing in your own self-pity long enough. Get up off that couch!

*Hopefully, you won’t need this song in your playlist. If you do, you’re more than likely still screwed, and you have definitely not moved on. Come to think about it, this playlist is useless for you.

    Bueno, veo que poco a poco vas aprendiendo a hacer playlists. Porque ya sabes que no se pueden mezclar diferentes idiomas…. Pero Txoria Txori y Jo Ta Ke? Igual alguien se te queja de nuevo. 🙂
