|Chicken or fish?|
So, I have assembled 64 of the best pop tunes of the last decade and change that deal with the murky swamp that begins the moment the relationship ends, and not a moment sooner (what good does that do?). There are some iconic songs of anger and frustration, others sassy sendoffs to someone deserving to remain in the past; some simple mourning, and a few more optimistic declarations of moving on. For the most part, the bracket placement is the random product of iTunes' shuffle function, with a mere couple of minor adjustments in the interest of keeping this interesting for the long haul. Each day I will post two new matchups, and readers will have 72 hours to log their votes for the one they prefer for whatever reason that might be whatsoever. Those with stronger opinions are encouraged to use the comments to sway voters in their preferred direction!
Gather round, grab the Grappa, and start the cleansing ritual: it's March Madness here on Vertigo Shtick, so let The Big Bad Breakup Bracket tournament begin! Follow @vertigo_shtick on Twitter or the Vertigo Shtick Facebook page to keep up with the new matchups that will be posted each day, since voting only remains open for 72 hours on each one!
