"Breaking Up is Hard to Do," Neil Sedaka

Go with me on this, hipsters: When a song has been covered by everyone from Gloria Estefan to Nick Carter over the years, clearly the original must have some merit when it comes to soothing a broken heart. The lyrics may be squeaky clean ("They say that breaking up is hard to do/Now I know, I know that it's true/Don't say that this is the end/Instead of breaking up I wish that we were making up again"), but I think this is a case of old lameness being the new coolness. -- Lisa Arnett
