Breaking Up to a Beat (2012's Prompt)

Breaking Up to a Beat was a contest I hosted last year over the course of February for writers to pick a song, any song, and use it as a platform for a tale of love gone awry. Or to put it a bit more long winded:

Writers of great talent from all walks of life come together at this blog, choose songs that inspire them, and write original works about bad love, break ups, and love never realized based on those tunes. Then you, the reader votes on your favorite so they can win glorious prizes. Because art should always be judged.

All the entries follow below.

Oh, and SPOILER ALERT: Heather Weinberg won.
