Readers, friends, lovers, do not worry. I, too, am VERY upset that Valentines Day 2017 has come to a close. Second only to Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day serves as the source of most of my joy. Yes, I said it. Why? Every year on February 14th, the apathetic layman is inundated with colors, scents, and feelings of love; heartfelt or not, one iota of this stuff is bound to diffuse into his consciousness. He feels the love. You feel the love. Suddenly he is texting, “I love how your hair puddles around your shoulders in inky rivulets” as opposed to, “U up? ;)” Now you’re looking at properties in the area, unsure about the 2-bedroom townhouse, because maybe you want space for two or three kids. You decide to get a dog together and try caring for something other than yourselves for once. Next thing you know you’ve purchased a trunk load of flat-pack furniture from IKEA, five Flärdfulls and two Riktig Öglas in total. What was I saying?
Anyway, V-day can be nauseating. Check out these tunes.
Cool Company- Call You Back
This jiggly hit will speak to those who really (seriously) only want to hook up. The lyrics speak for themselves.
“Don’t you think we would be perfect together?
D.R.A.M.’s entire Tiny Desk Concert
I’ve spent more than five hours listening to D.R.A.M.’s jazzed out covers. He can tech us all about being carefree when emotions are running high.
Connan Mockasin- I’m The Man, That Will Find You
Just a reminder that someone sezzi is waiting for you.
Anderson.Paak- Luh You
Another reminder that someone sezzi is waiting for you.
Redbone-Come and Get Your Love
This one goes out to the weens who are too mind-numbingly passive to say that they think I’m a Grade A smoke-show. Yeah. I am giving myself a lot of credit.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra- Multi-love
This list has devolved into songs I like that coincidentally have some version of the word “love” in the title.
