Katie Gassert: So, for me, there are definitely three stages of break-up songs. There's the: "I want to cry with Joni Mitchell to 'Both Sides Now.'" Then there's the: "What am I doing with my life, and can Alanis [Morissette] help me with 'Incomplete'?" phase. But then I always end with the: "You know what, I don't need him or anyone with Blaque's 'I'm Good'," which you may or may not remember from the credits of one of my favorite movies, "Honey." That's how I deal.
