Re: The Guardian- 1000 songs everyone must hear- part two- Heartbreak

Good lists. Keep posting! Personally I await an imaginary list named "tension" or "power".

Decent Lists...

but some of theclassifications seem odd. How is "Crazy For You," for instwnce, about heartbreak? Longing for someone isn't exactly heartbreak, is it? And "One Way or Another" would fall more under obsession/stalking.

And I'd never classify "No Scrubs" as a heartbreak song!
