Nerve - The 50 Greatest Breakup Songs of All Time (2012)

(credits: Brian Dys Sahagun, Flickr)

Info: "... one, a breakup song can be vengeful, dignified, devastated, or whatever else, as long as the lyrics make explicit reference to a relationship that is ending or has ended. Two, we limited it to one song per principal songwriter. Three, this list goes back to 1960, which we feel represents the dawn of pop music as we know it, but we apologize to Edith Piaf, Frank Sinatra, Mozart, et al." (... and I apologize to subscribers who formerly knew this playlist as Angry Love Songs: I messed a little and some songs disappeared).
