Main Question or Discussion Point

so Valentines is coming up, and I wonder where it all began. I mean now a days, its just a day where we get more candy, and Hallmark gets more money. And sure my boyfriends gets me things, and tells me he loves me, but really guys why does this day exists?

They instigated $5 cover charges for all of us who swang some plumbing. Talk about violations of equal rights!!!

Sheesh...

Five Valentine's Day songs for us "other people":

Bitter Pills For Bitter Pills

On the other hand, at least I don't have to fork out $50 for flowers only to have the recipient be ticked off at the sparcity of roses in the arrangement.

Even though it missed the final cut, the Mountain Goat's "No Children" that was mentioned is awesome in a very dark, mentally unhealthy kind of way (but that's the best kind of way).

All songs look quite dark I couldn't listen to any for more than few seconds but the singers are really good. I particularly loved Laura Gibson (This is not end) and Elizabeth & the Catapult (Thank you for nothing).

The guy I was dating that I played "no children" for, introduced to me *69 love songs*. The magnetic fields changed my life forever.

For BobG, hope you like these.

I like the Avett Brothers. Somehow, these lyrics just strike something deep within me and brings a tear to my eye.

Park the old car
That I love the best
(The) inspections due and it won’t pass the test
It’s funny how I have to put it to rest
And how one day…I will join it
I miss every car I've ever owned (except that stupid deisel station wagon I owned for a while). I still remember how I left for a year in Alaska with the Mazda that I'd bought two years before for $50 sitting in the driveway - and how the ex sold it to a salvage yard for $40 the day after I was gone. I never even had to change the oil on that car - I just had to add a quart whenever I filled the gas tank.

Those are two favorites. I'm going crazy right now trying to find my volume 1 cd, what did I do with it?

Personally preferred Peter Gabriel's version of Book of Love that they played in the Scrubs Finale.

Piano and guitar are nice, but I don't care for the lyrics.

A different video with Peter Gabriel's version of the Book of Love. The old couples in the video remind me of my grand parents and now parents. I had good examples.

Re: Book of Love - Love is never boring. Sometimes it's hard work, some times it's mundane, but mostly, it's simply wonderful.

In about 4 weeks, it will be the 30th anniversary of my first date with my wife.

I don't like Peter Gabriels remake of the Book of Love. He makes it sound off tune, dull, and boring.

The one by the 'magnets' or who ever it is sounds really out of tune. I've heard drunken karaoke go down better.

EDIT: I like "A Thousand Miles - Vanessa Carlton", but that's mainly because I can play it on the piano.
