Alfred Lord Tennyson once said, " 'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." Whatever. Those wise words your mom tells you can be annoying when you're going through a bad breakup. We've all been there: For the first few days — even weeks — you revel in your self-pity, anger and anguish like a piglet in mud. And you listen to music the whole time.
In this, the second edition of Alt.Latino, we give you a list of our favorite songs to listen to during a breakup. They're not all sad, either: From a fierce Spanish rap to a ballad about letting go from the Dominican Republic and a Colombian singer's daydream, we've assembled an awesome list of songs to play as you ride the train to Splitsville.
Today's theme song is "No. 114" by Mexico's Rey Pila. For more about the band, click here. Please leave your thoughts on breakups, breakup music and this episode of Alt.Latino in the comments section below.
