Yesterday’s word that Madonna and Guy Ritchie are divorcing was as expected as it was sad. Rumors of the couple’s inevitable split had been swirling for months, and (not surprisingly) (also a wee bit depressingly) a lot of the post-announcement talk centered on the cynical belief that the couple timed their announcement to coincide with the North American leg of her Sticky & Sweet tour and the Oct. 31 release of his new movie RocknRolla.

Yeah, I know, maybe there’s some truth in the speculation, but I’m kind of hoping Madge takes back the power, acknowledges the split, and expresses herself by adding a certified breakup anthem to her Sticky & Sweet set list. Sure, she could choose one of her own relationship farewells — think “Bye Bye Baby” or “The Power of Goodbye” or “You’ll See” — but I’m hoping for an iconic cover. Tell Madonna what you want to hear her sing in our poll below, or conversely, if you’re in favor of “other,” then list your pick in the comments section below.
