“Desert Island All-Time Top Five Breakups” – High Fidelity

Music: Tom Kitt   Lyrics: Amanda Green

Any breakup that occurs the day after Valentine’s is destined to wind up on a person’s list of top five breakups.  That is, if they keep a list, like the protagonist in this angst-ridden musical about the owner of a record store hung up on his ex-girlfriend.  In this fun song, the immature guy lists his all-time top five breakups and tries to convince himself that the girl that got away does not make the cut.  As he slowly matures and attempts to win her back, an awesome score masks his bad qualities and may even cause you to root for him in the end.
