Ten best divorce songs for Tiger Woods, or anyone else headed for Splitsville
|Turn up the Tammy|
1. Marvin Gaye - Here, My Dear
This entire double album by the soul singer was a concept album of sorts, dedicated to Gaye's failed first marriage to Anna Gordy, the older sister of Motown Records founder Barry Gordy.
2. Tammy Wynette - "D.I.V.O.R.C.E."
An appropriate song for Wynette, who had five husbands over the course of her life. So much for "Stand By Your Man."
3. Steely Dan - "Haitian Divorce"
A funky, melancholy, Caribbean ballad. Listen to it with a beer in a bar without air conditioning for maximum effect.
4. Stephen Lynch - "Divorce Song"
Either you love or loathe Stephen Lynch, but this funny song mentions drinking and poker. Prime line: "Daddy like porno and $10 whores." You get the picture. Unfunny people think this is a funny song. So famously dull (except when he's sending angry sexts) Tiger Woods should enjoy.
5. Liz Phair - "Divorce Song"
The twelfth song on Phair's 1993 album, Exile in Guyville. This song, an open letter to an ex-lover, just sounds dated (except for the last thirty seconds, which include a blistering harmonica outro), but the lyrics are timeless: "It's harder to be friends than lovers, and you shouldn't try to mix the two."
