The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “break.”

~~~~~~~~~~

Oh, look! I’m back in the 70s again! 😀

The Stylistics were known for their smooth Philly sound and a string of hits which included Betcha By Golly, Wow, Stone in Love With You, and You Make Me Feel Brand New. But it’s their 1973 hit, Break Up to Make Up, I bring to this week’s challenge.

It was the seventh track from their 1972 album, Round 2 and was released as a single. Break Up to Make Up reached number 5 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, number 5 on the Billboard R&B chart, and number 34 in the UK Singles Chart in April 1973. The Stylistics’ recording sold over one million copies in the US, earning the band a gold disc The award was presented by the RIAA on April 6, 1973. It was the band’s fourth gold disc.

If the song sounds familiar, it’s probably because it’s been covered by artists from almost every music genre… a dozen times!

Break Up to Make Up is also sure to be found on most lists of great break-up songs.

Like Bobby Womack’s If You Think You’re Lonely Now, Break Up to Make Up is about ending the pointless cycle a couple has fallen into and breaking up for good. There wasn’t a performance video, but the song is more than enough!

Enjoy!
