Company says it will pay someone to listen to 24 hours of sad songs. How much?

 For anyone out there coping with a breakup, a Florida company may have a way to help you process it faster and earn some cash at the same time.

FinanceBuzz, an informational website that helps people make financial decisions, recently announced that it is looking for someone to listen to 24 hours of breakup songs in exchange for $1,100.

Breakups happen pretty often around Valentine's Day, according to data site YouGov. Millennials more than any generation have broken hearts on Feb. 14, with 11% saying they’ve ended a relationship on the day that celebrates love, according to the site.

"We know a good breakup song can help heal the heart," the Delray Beach, Florida-based FinanceBuzz said. "Plus, we want to help heal someone’s wallet at the same time."
