Blood on the Tracks by Bob Dylan is an entire break-up album. If You See Her, Say Hello and Idiot Wind especially.
"Excuse me Miss, do you like pineapple?"

"I don't want to achieve immortality through my work, I want to achieve it through not dying"

Songs about break ups? Songs for getting over break ups?
for the former, Catch 22 - walking away.
for the later, Bright Eyes - fevers and mirrors is my favorite rainy day album

Beautiful disaster by 311 is a good one for a breakup, at least it was for me!

And better yet, the song doesnt remind me of the breakup so I can still listen to it!

Cavalier Eternal by Against Me!

Seriously, ideal breakup song. So hilarious.

"Girl, I'm sorry, but I'm leaving.
We're both at fault, we're both to blame.
And it wasn't the other men, 'cause there were other women.
This just isn't love, it's just the remorse of a loss of a feeling.
Even if i stayed, it just wouldn't be the same."

My other favourite is My Favorite Accident by Motion City Soundtrack.

I love Cavalier Eternal(against me in general really) I can't believe I didn't think of it.

Haha, yeah. I only like their older albums, but that song is so fucking awesome. :)

I'm fond of a lot of Ben Folds (Five) for this.
"Gone" "Selfless, Cold and Composed" "Trusted" and, if you like, "Song for the Dumped"
I have nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.
And some old pictures.

Muse - Hyper Music.

depends on who's doing the breaking up, cause the chorus is "I DONT LOVE YOU AND I NEVER WILL"
uhhhh fuck.

Another classic. I was really hoping they were going to get back together last year it seemed like every other ska band was and by every other ska band I mean the bosstones and HSFH.

What I want to know is how Bosstones got themselves into Rock Band 2. I mean, it's awesome, but I was not expecting it at all.

Perhaps the world's most depressing break up song:
Flowers From the Man Who Shot Your Cousin-"I Do Not Love You Anymore"
