As an 'international' band, London indie rockers The Boxer Rebellion we suspect that collectively been in trouble with ladies from all corners of the globe - so much so the band even featured in rom-com Going The Distance with Drew Barrymore. So whether Hollywood or real heartbreaks, the band's drummer Piers Hewitt has picked ten heart-rending songs for when you find yourself spending a long evening in the doghouse. Billy Bragg - Sulk "I've always loved his accent shining through in his songs. Upliftingly miserable."
22-20s - Such A Fool "Boozy, angry blues about being in the wrong. Best played loud."
Wilco - I'm The Man Who Loves You "One of my favorourite ever bands. About as romantic as they get."
The Beatles - I'm A Loser "Not as commonly heard as many of their other songs. At their early best."
Soul Asylum - Runaway Train "Makes me feel 13 again. Which is always a winner."
Fink - If Only "Love this guy. Acoustic guitar moves to melt women's hearts. Which is great of you've just had an argument."
The Vaccines - Post Break Up Sex "Does exactly what it says on the tin. One of the better bands to have emerged over the last year or so."
R.E.M. - The Apologist "Nothing says sorry more than, well, saying sorry (about 50 times). And it's REM, who I love."
Crowded House - Into Temptation "Rumour has it, Neil Finn got in trouble with his wife for writing this. Whether it's true or not, it's a great rumour. And a great song."
The Maccabees - Love You Better "Top guys, top band, top tune. It almost makes me want to dance, which is saying something."
