Last Valentine's Day, I found songs with "Love" in the title to celebrate the occasion. This year, I did the same thing, but then decided that I would ALSO try and find some that might be a tad on the offensive side. Think of romance purely in terms of its physical motivations without the warm and fuzzies, (at least in terms of the emotional warm and fuzzies).
Enjoy the playlist and, if you'd like, recommend some more.
