As good as the new Justin Timberlake album is, it lacks a song like "Cry Me A River". A single from Timberlake's 2002 debut solo album, it's a big, bold and esoteric ballad combining several musical styles, showing producer Timbaland's obvious talents as much as Justin's vocal prowess. It's a gorgeous song, a sad and wonderful piece of music with a melody and hooks to kill for. Not to be confused with the 1955 Julie London hit of the same title, of course.
