I haven't compiled love or "anti-love" songs in tribute to Valentine's Day for quite some time, so I thought I'd spend the day curating some new tracks to consider. I hope I don't repeat any inclusions from playlists I've posted in the past, but you can find those here:
2/14/12 — Valentine’s Day: “Love” is in the Title...
2/14/13 — Valentine's Day: "Love" is in the title... (again, but not really)
Some of the links are dead, but there are still some tracks to listen to.
Embrace your loved ones today and beyond, everyone.
