Best melodic break-up song

Thought I'd get all angsty and existential on you all and stop this general love-in with all this talk about wedding songs. We all know the joy that AOR can give us but I have to say that when it comes down to it I probably get more hope and inspiration at times of emotional distress from hearing songs that make you believe it can be alright again than just the ones that confirm how much you love someone.
I think the songs that affected me the most are as follows:
'Send Her My Love' by Journey as much for the tone and regret in the music as the lyrics.
'Whose Cryin' Now?' by Journey (has anyone heard the intro from the Frontiers bootleg which is as destroying as the song).
'Don't Lose any Sleep' by John Waite (although written by Diane Warren and recorded by many other people) because it captures that womnderful way ex-partners have of trying to make sure you're ok while telling you to get lost.
'I Don't Want to be Your Friend' by Desmond Child (for the same reasons).
'Sometimes' by John Waite just for making it seem like there is just a little hope left.
'Love Lies Dying' by Strangeways-Terry Brock's finest hour and I don't think anyone could not be brought to their knes by the chorus.
I could go on but I'd be interested in any ideas.
Cheers paul
