One of the things that made Myspace unique was the ability to add songs to our profiles. It was one of the reasons why I wasn’t quite ready to break up with the site and start committing to Facebook. (That, and the fact Facebook lacked the ability to show who my top 8 were.)

If you were a high school girl who used Myspace, there was probably one motive behind the song you picked for everyone to hear–love. Whether you were in a long-term relationship of three months or experiencing unrequited love, there was always that one song that could perfectly describe the status of your love life.




Here are ten songs that you may have had on your Myspace profile.

1. The Reason – Hoobastank


Love life status:

You had an argument with your boyfriend about your drunken behavior at the prom afterparty, and now he isn’t speaking to you. You apologized and are doing everything you can to prove that you’re trying to change.

The line that resonated with you most: A reason to start over new, and the reason is you.

2. Chasing Cars – Snow Patrol


Love life status:

You’ve met this wonderful person, but there’s just no way you two can be together since he’s going off to college next year. You would do anything just to be with him a little longer, even if that meant chasing cars.


The line that resonated with you most: Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

3. Over my Head – The Fray


Love life status:

The guy you’ve called your boyfriend for the past six months has broken up with you. He says he’s not ready for anything long term. Um, hello? Six months! You were certain the two of you would grow old together and now he doesn’t even acknowledge you in the hallway at school. Ouch.


The line that resonated with you most:

I’m becoming the part that doesn’t last. I’m losing you and it’s effortless.

4. Tim Mcgraw – Taylor Swift


Love life status:

This past summer you had a fling with a guy visiting from out of state. The two of you shared plenty of great memories together, but it was inevitable it’d come to an end. You know that you’ll probably never seen him again, but you hope that everything around him is a constant reminder of you.


The line that resonated with you most:

I hope you think of me.

5. Swing, Swing – All American Rejects

Love life status: You’re trying to move on from that former love. Even if you do still have a broken heart, you’re ready. In fact, you may have met someone to help you get over that other guy.

The line that resonated with you most: Do you know what it feels like being alone? I’ll find someone new.

6. Bubbly – Colbie Caillat

Love life status: You’ve developed a  serious crush, and it’s the best feeling EV-ER. The side-effects are all there: the butterflies, the uncontrollable giggles, and the mumbling over your words when he speaks to you. It’s all very grade school and you never want it to end. (Spoiler alert: It will.)

The line that resonated with you most: You give me feelings that I adore. They start in my toes, make me crinkle my nose.

7. She Will be Loved – Maroon 5

Love life status: You have feelings for your best guy friend, but unfortunately he has a girlfriend. When things get rocky between the two of them, he comes running to you. Of course you will always be there for him even though he probably won’t ever see you as more than a friend. But you’re hopeful.

The line that resonated with you most: My heart is full and my door’s always open. You can come anytime you want.

8. Leave (Get out) – Jojo

Love life status: You found out your boyfriend cheated on you with the girl he works with at the movie theater. Now all you want is for him to get the hell out of your life.

The line that resonated with you most: It’s the end of you and me. It’s too late now and I can’t wait for you to be gone.

9. This Year’s Love – David Gray

Love life status: So, you’ve been hurt many times in the past and are afraid to start anything new with someone. But this guy is, like, so different from the rest. You hope this one will last.

The line that resonated with you most: But when you hold me like you do. It feels so right.

10. Bless the Broken Road – Rascal Flatts

Love life status: All those assholes in the past apparently happened for a reason. Yes, even that time when your ex cheated on you with the girl from the movie theater. Otherwise you would have never met this one.

The line that resonated with you most: Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars, pointing me on my way into your loving arms.
