AllMusic Review by

Sony's Have a Nice Life compilation celebrates the bitter end of the relationship spectrum with 12 classic breakup songs that are sure to inspire hours of sitting on the edge of your bed holding in your guts. Melancholy tales of woe from the Byrds ("Here Without You"), the Bobby Fuller Four ("Another Sad and Lonely Night"), and the king of crying Roy Orbison ("Goodnight") will keep the waterworks running long into the night, ruining both the next day and quite possibly the entire week before you realize that it was over ten years ago and just isn't going to work out for either of you. You could still be friends.
