Oh Valentine's Day, or Single Awareness Day.
Even though I did not have a Valentine, my friends and I still showered ourselves with chocolate and wine. Because of my single status, I should be listening to anti-love songs...but I still love love songs - and here are some of my favorites:
.
1. My Love - The Bird and The Bee (all of their songs remind me of Valentines and with a band name like that, how could they not?)
2. First Love - Adele (sweet, innocent)
3. In These Arms - The Swell Season ("Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms" - how could you not melt?)
4. Never Bloom Again - The Perishers (tender)
5. L-L-Love - Blondfire (acoustic version)
6. Cosmic Love - Florence and the Machine (perhaps my favorite song of hers)
7. Perfection - Oh Land (this band is a new favorite - if you love Florence, you will love them!)
8. Sweet Disposition - Temper Trap (I always think of 500 Days of Summer)
9. When U Love Somebody - Fruit Bats
10. Kiss Me Again - Jessica Lea Mayfield
11. Gray or Blue - Jaymay (the ultimate crush song)
12. Take it Back - She & Him (they had to be on this mix tape)
13. Season of Love - Shiny Toy Guns
14. Born this Way - Lady Gaga (despite all the criticism she's getting for this, I am a loyal fan and love the message)

P.S. I also spent my Valentines evening at an event literally called "F**k Valentine's Day."

  3. great song choices, especially grey or blue- it's one of my favorites, and definitely perfectly captures that feeling of uncertainty (which simultaneously makes me think 'ugh' and 'aw'!). thanks for you comment, by the way! you should definitely learn to sew- it's super easy, it just takes some patience!
