The ultimate K-Tel breakup album

If you are of a certain age you will remember those "ultimate love compilation albums" that were advertised on TV, made by K-Tel - a company which still exists!

Well, when I was about 15, I came up with the idea of the ultimate antidote to this: the breakup compilation.

Fifty of the greatest break-up songs of all time: the soundtrack to your divorce or breakup. For every mood from nostalgia to smashing the crockery. This is the compilation you have always wanted... but until now, it was unavailable. You have been waiting thirty years for this, whether you knew it or not.

At last, with the magic of the interwebs, we bring you: Classic Break-up Songs - the Ultimate Compilation.

And these last two for those messy break-ups where there is no hope of reconciliation...

And for when it has all blown over, and there's nothing left but nostalgie de la boue...

It seems like a good time to write this now, when I am happily and madly in love, rather than at the point when I actually needed this album to put on my stereo, when it would be too depressing!

More suggestions welcome!
