    What makes for better influence on music a broken heart or a loving relationship?

    I feel as though the deck is a bit stacked. Of course, there are an abundance of tremendous love songs that are profound and intimate, yet strikingly accessible and universal. That being said, almost no one writes an album of how great their relationship is. The breakup album is as ubiquitous as they come. From In the Wee Small Hours, to Blood on the Tracks, to Disintegration, to For Emma, Forever Ago, to 21, and so on and so forth. So, naturally, the answer is heartbreak, which is only natural. Most of art, of any kind, is to explain some idea, or to work out some feeling or question. If a person’s natural inclination is to solve discomfort or confusion, it only makes sense that something unpleasant would lend itself towards a greater degree of creativity.

    Broken Heart. “Back to Black” is the best example.

    Both work quite good in a lot of songs. I really don’t prefer one over the other.
    Comes to the personal situation also: if you’re freshly in love, would you like to hear songs over heartbreakes? I don’t tbh.
    Same for the other way round. But that’s just me, though.

    Heartbreak is definitely better.  Some great albums have come out of it.  My Life, Back To Black, Stripped, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, Secrets and In The Lonely Hour to name a few.

    Add No Doubt’s “Tragic Kingdom” and “Return of Saturn” as great break-up albums.
