    Putting together a mix of good revenge songs - featuring all genres of music. Suggestions, please!

    Not specifically interested in the 'jilted lover' kinds of music, though that might work, too.

    Kelly Clarkson has a funny revenge song, but I'm not sure if that is what you are looking for.

    Also the All American Rejects have the "Hope it gives you Hell" song, it is pretty revengy.

    Not about getting revenge per se, but "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'" by Journey comes to mind.

    Robert Cray's "I Guess I Showed Her" is a very funny, cautionary tale about getting so mad while ending a relationship that you end up doing something causes you more trouble than you meant to show the other person.

    J.J. Cale has a darker and distinctly unfunny one called "River Runs Deep."

    LOL maybe it's much more Trudie that he has to keep the eye on. Frances certainly seems to have just gone about her life, raised those kids and kept growing her acting work, so many credits by now, too, but apparently she's one for keeping her life private.

    RollingStone ran a poll on best stalker song once:
    Sting, Every Breath You Take 63%
    Sarah McLachlan, Possession 11%
    Blondie, One Way or Another, 21%
    Dionne Warwick, Say a Little Prayer, 5%

    The Mariner's Revenge Song - The Decemberists
    -One of my favorite songs of all time. So well written and I love the use of the female's vocals for the ghost of the protagonist's mother.

    Seventy Times Seven - Brand New
    -Teen angst at it's best, hahaha.
