I Heart Breakup Songs

Valentines Day is almost here. Normally we use the occasion to feature love songs on All Songs Considered. But this year, the gang has decided to do breakup songs instead. We'll post that show on All Songs Considered on Feb. 8.

I quickly put out a call on Twitter @allsongs: Tell us a favorite breakup song. In 15 minutes, I had a ton of suggestions including the ones listed below. Feel free to add your own to the list, using the comments section.

"The District Sleeps Alone Tonight" by The Postal Service

"Parting Gift" by Fiona Apple

"No Children" by The Mountain Goats

"Leave" by The Swell Season

"Pictures Of You" by The Cure

"I Want You Back" by Jackson 5

"I'm Not Crying" by Flight of the Conchords

Tell us your favorite breakup song, and listen to the show on Feb. 8.
