What are the Best Breakup Songs?

I recently found an old friend I’d all but forgotten: my Missy Higgins The Sound of White album. This album and I go way back. It got me through a hideous breakup with hours of cathartic sobbing, crying and feeling generally sorry for myself. I had it on repeat for months and months…

Do you have a “favorite” break up song? Or album? Is it the woe-is-me kind or the fuck you type of album (Jagged Little Pill, anyone?).

    Sound of White, Jagged Little Pill, Under my Skin, All you will never know. (last two by Avril Lavigne) Oh and Natalie Imbruglia White Lillies Island – I think – unsure of title, think it was her second album.
    And damn it – now I’m crying :s

    A song I listened to when I last had my heart broken was “Single” by Everything But The Girl.
    The whole album “Walking Wounded” is a soundtrack for a breakup.

    ‘Division’ by Aly & Aj got me through some seriously tough times at the beginning of our break up.

    Last time I had to get over someone it took way to long and I was listening to sappy stuff.

    If it happens again it’s going to be “99 problems” by Jay Z and crank it up until I feel better. :P
