Dear Angry Girl...

Bitter Amanda,
I just got out of a relationship with an idiot. I need some good breakup music - not the sappy "how can I live without you" stuff - but the "you sucked and I'm better off without you." Do you have any suggestions?
~Single and better off

Dear Angry Girl,
Oh yeah. I've got some suggestions. Some of it sounds silly when you look at my list, but trust me--put it on and belt it out...these people know what they're talking about. No judging on this one. Off the top of my head...

--Puddle of Mudd "She Hates Me"
--Britney Spears "Stronger"
--Carrie Underwood "Before He Cheats"
--Nancy Sinatra "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'"
--Ray Charles "Hit the Road Jack"
--Jason Derulo "Solo"
--Ke$ha "Grow a Pear"
--All American Rejects "Gives You Hell"
--'NSync "Bye Bye Bye"
--Beyonce "Single Ladies" 
--Destiny's Child "Survivor"
--Christina Aguilera "Fighter"
--Pink "So What"
--Ace of Base "I Saw the Sign" (No, I'm not kidding.)
--Kelly Clarkson "Since U Been Gone"
--Taylor Swift "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"

And my Top 5...
--Ben Folds Five "Song for the Dumped"
--Cee Lo "Fuck You"
--Lily Allen "Fuck You" (A different one. So many varieties!)
--Alanis Morissette "You Oughta Know"
--Gloria Gaynor "I Will Survive"

Solitarily yours,
Bitter Amanda

**EDIT: Early readers may have noticed I totally screwed up a song title. It's been fixed, don't worry about it, but please remember to edit when you have 9 billion songs rattling around your brain at once. MULTI TASKING FAIL.
