30 Day Song Challenge - Day 04: A Song That Makes You Sad

Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend" makes me very uncomfortable.  Breakup songs have been a staple of pop music since it began and Robyn found a unique angle, one I don't recall being used before, taking the point of view of the new girlfriend.  The start of this new relationship is not a place of pure joy, but something that will wound the girlfriend no matter how well the situation is handled.  How sad.
