 This list is incomplete without The Human League's "Don't You Want Me."

 That's what I thought too, until I read the last line of #1. But what a great article! I had no idea Positive K did that by himself. I would have found a space for "Get Out of My House" by The Streets, though.

 2 more: "The Big Fight" by Stars, and "22: The Death Of All Romance" by The Dears

 Just one recommendation-Cannibal Ox "The F-word RJD2 remix"

 Don't forget 'I Luv U' --"That boy's some prick y'na"

 Sometimes Always by Jesus & Mary Chain. A bit silly but I like it.

 Yes, this list absolutely needs "Don't You Want Me". I also like "Talk About Our Love" by Brandy feat. Kanye.

 I would of added "If You Were The Woman And I Was The Man" by Cowboy Junkies.

 Not certain, but I'm pretty sure that the the Postal Service song is with Jen Wood, not Jenny Lewis. . . they both show up all over the album, but I think this duet is Wood.

 What about Common's breakup letter to music itself "I used to love her"?

 Well, there's already been a feature dedicated to it, but the best relationship/conversation song is "Fairytale of New York."

 Stars also would have felt at home on this list.

 I see two major omissions, both by Tindersticks - A Marriage Made In Heaven and Buried Bones

 "Ciao" by Lush ft. Jarvis Cocker. List is absurd without it.

 As soon as I saw the link on the front page I thought "This list had better have "Oh Yeah" by the Magnetic Fields" Very nice. Also appreciate the Tom Waits tune.
