Reigning queen of breakup songs Adele shared her ultimate breakup songs playlist with People -- and surprisingly, she left her entire discography off the list, adding the likes of blues singer Bonnie Raitt and the inimitable Etta James instead.

Though the singer happily spends her days with partner Simon Konecki and their three-year-old son Simon, Adele hasn't forgotten the pain of a breakup. "I mope around for a little while," Adele said. "I do embrace the fact that I'm heartbroken. I don't move on quickly. I don't know if that's because it seems that I'm only really creative when I'm a bit momentarily depressed."

And for that, we now have "Hello," "Someone Like You," "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)"...
