Description by OLDIES.com:
Breaking up is hard to do - and when a relationship turns sour, nothing provides more comfort than the cheesy pop hits of the '70s and '80s. Just as Quirk's I Can't Fight This Feeling was an anthology of classic love poetry, You Give Love a Bad Name features poetic writings on breaking up - and moving on - from The Bee Gees, Michael Bolton, Pat Benatar, Hall and Oates, and many others. Packaged in an elegant hardcover volume with a deluxe ribbon marker, it's the perfect gift for anyone seeking to mend a broken heart.
Lyrical Reflections on Breaking Up—and Moving On—from the Brightest Stars of Pop Music
This heartfelt collection of poetry extends a helping hand to anyone coping with a broken heart, a cheating lover, a cold-hearted snake, or worse. Let the words of pop poets gently guide you through the five stages of grief: denial (“Is She Really Going Out with Him?” by Joe Jackson); anger (I Hate Myself for Loving You” by Joan Jett); bargaining (If Ever You’re in My Arms Again” by Peabo Bryson); depression (“Alone” by Heart); and acceptance (Goodbye to You” by Scandal).
Also included are classic works by The Bee Gees, Paula Abdul, Air Supply, The Carpenters, Pat Benatar, and many, many others!
