Question of the Day: "I'm Sorry"

by Corny O'Connell

Over the weekend Jack White issued an "apology" for having made disparaging remarks about The Black Keys, Danger Mouse, Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Lana del Rey, and Adele behind their backs. Instead of making his begrudging mea culpa in prose, he should have just written them a song. Saying, "I'm sorry," in song has a long tradition. List some of your favorite examples in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.
