Most couples have a special song that reminds them of getting or being together, but the folks at IllicitEncounters.com have come up with a 10-pack of tunes that the newly single use to endure the end of a relationship.

In a survey of 500 people, nearly eight in ten increased their music listening after a split, and break-up songs ranked high on most playlists.

A spokesperson for the site said, "Adele's 'Someone Like You' is the most popular song immediately after breakups. But Gotye's 'Someone That I Used to Know' is the most popular song two weeks after breakups. This really reflects the emotional process of a breakup: initially sorrow and then anger."
