A companion piece to the Love Songs thread, what are your favorite songs dealing with a break-up; songs that are either sorry, regretful or bitter.

"Yesterday" - The Beatles
"Unhappy Birthday" - The Smiths
"Pictures Of You" & "Boys Don't Cry" - The Cure
"With Or Without You" - U2
"Don't Think Of Me" - Dido
“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

Married With Children - Oasis
Yesterday's Papers - The Rolling Stones
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Pictures Of You pretty much hits the nail on the head for me.

Although, when I'm in that kind of mood, I usually listen to love songs instead. Glutton for punishment, I am.

Give Me My Money Back, You Bitch by Ben Folds is a good antithesis to when you're feeling really down about a girl.

"(Afternoon) Soaps" - Arab Strap

"I Don't Mind if You Forget Me" - Morrissey

"Single" - Pony Club
"Too Many Fish in the Sea" - The Marvelettes

""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

"In Serbia a lot of people hate me because they want to westernise, not understanding that the western world is bipolar, with very good things and very bad things. Since they don't have experience of the west, they even believe that western shit is pie."

Crying - Roy Orbison
Boys don't cry - The Cure
I know it's over - The Smiths (which also works as a "didn't work out" song since "it never really began, but in my heart it was so real")

i don't think that's a break-up song as much as an "i'm really obsessed with you" song

lots of bright eyes stuff, and though it's more of a jealousy song "the calendar hung itself" especially.

 "haligh haligh a lie haligh" is great too.

Good call.

Also, Beck - Lonesome Tears (or anything from Sea Change, I guess)
At wave level, everything exists as a contradiction. Everything is existing in more than one stage/place at any given moment. Everything must move/vibrate and constantly change to exist. Everything, including buildings, mountains, oceans and thoughts.
