Wanted: Candidates for a new Sad Mix

I'm making a sort of sad mix cd. So anybody want to give me suggestions: breakup songs, etc.?

So far, I know I'll have "Woke Up New" by the Mountain Goats and Will Oldham's "New Partner."

What else?

I imagine post-Tennenbaums this is rather cliche, but Nico's These Days.
