Bonjour! I decided today to compile a list of the Five best songs with the word 'Valentine' in the title. I thought I would find loads, but after racking my brains, and trawling through Spotify, I've discovered there aren't so many after all, and most of them are pretty awful. Anyway, I didn't let that stop me so here are the best ones I could find. Enjoy them alone, with your boyfriend, girlfriend, cat, bottle of wine, or whatever.
Okay, so if you wanna be a smart ass, the word 'Valentine' is in the band name rather than the song title but I had to include My Bloody Valentine. Total legends. I'm sure most of us know someone who's ears have suffered after seeing them live.
Tweeeeee! Here is a band that some of you might not be aware of, but should be. They are called 'The School' and they come from Cardiff. Sooo cute, and singer Liz Hunt used to be in another band called The Loves, who were also ace! The School have released two albums and claim Molly Ringwald is a fan. Check them out on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/theschoolband
Richard Hawley is my slightly embarassing older man crush. I met him in person once.
Not really one of their better tunes in my opinion but some of you might like it.
With lyrics such as
'Some day boy you'll reap what you've sown
You'll catch a cold and you'll be on your own'
this is the perfect track if you are feeling a bit miserable on V-day.
A final mention goes to Hello Saferide - Valentines Day, which wasn't on youtube but you can find it on Spotify and should listen to them because they are lots of fun.
Happy Valentines day everyone xxxxx
