"Dear John" by Taylor Swift

How Bitter Is It? 10 of 10. Swift's new album is already getting raves, and the press from her latest breakup song isn't hurting, either.

Sample Lyric: "Don't you think I was too young to be messed with? / The girl in the dress/ Cried the whole way home / I should've known"

Backstory: Taylor Swift's new album, Speak Now, features "Dear John", an angry six-and-a-half minute song reportedly written about another musician: John Mayer. Though Swift won't confirm that Mayer is the subject of the song, they were linked in 2009, while they collaborated on a song from his last album, "Half of My Heart". And Swift has a track record of writing songs about exes, penning "Back to December" for Taylor Lautner, and "Forever and Always" about Joe Jonas. New York Times music critic Jon Caramanica writes of "Dear John": "Whatever he did—or whatever Ms. Swift would like to suggest that he did—must have been brutal." (Photo by Bryan Bedder/Getty Images)
