There's music for every mood, including the times you go four extra exits on the highway just so you can cry in your car a little bit longer. British music mag NME recognizes the importance of wallowing in your sorrow from time to time and has released their list of 50 Beautifully Sad Songs, which you can listen to below. Sorry or you're welcome.

While we think most of the universe would agree with some of their picks—Bon Iver's "Skinny Love," Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U"—we can't help but think they're missing a few major ones. Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love"? Adele's "Someone Like You"?! Come on.

Listen to the playlist below and let us know in the comments what song makes you weep into a tub of ice cream.
