March Madness Breakup Bracket Day 6: Jewel vs. Sheryl Crow; Beyoncé vs. Alicia Keys

Vertigo Shtick has collected 64 of the best breakup pop tunes from the last decade or so to battle it out March Madness-style in a reader's choice tournament of getting over it!

Our first pair of the day is of the mellower variety than most of the other contenders here, starting with Jewel's iconic portrait of fresh heartbreak, "You Were Meant For Me" (I've chosen her more mature, less frog-like single re-recording), followed by the always somehow upbeat Sheryl Crow and "My Favorite Mistake."

Things get a little spicier in the second match, where Sasha Fierce taunts a commitment-phobic ex who's all up in her black and white spandex grill in "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" and Alicia Keys smolders her way through a great R&B cover of "How Come You Don't Call Me" (she leaves off Prince's original "Anymore").

Listen to the songs in each matchup below, and vote for your favorite for whatever reason you might think up! Readers will have 72 hours to log votes for these pairings. You're encouraged to use the comments to sway voters one way or another!
