Valentine’s Day: “Love” is in the Title...

Hearts and flowers, chocolates and ribbons, diapers and arrows. In recognition of today, I’ve selected a bunch of songs with “love” in the title. Now, will these songs completely embody the spirit of Valentine’s Day? No, I didn’t promise that.



Enjoy...
