This is that so-called "holiday" where people feel obligated to scramble around to buy expensive gifts or forced to go out to dinner where restaurants rob people blind by hiking up the prices to obscene levels, all of this in a commerical way to show someone how much you truly "love" them. Like JLo wisely said,"My love don't cost a thing" Worst still, people who don't happen to have a lover are made to feel particularly lousy today.
Despite all of this nonsense, Valentine's Day is a great excuse for me to share a few love songs that I love.
Enjoy them alone or with someone you care about:
"I Think I Love You " The Partridge Family
"My First Love" - Rene & Angela
"Love Will Never Do (Without You)" - Janet Jackson
"Love, Need, And Want You" - Patti LaBelle
"Love, Etc." - Pet Shop Boys
"All In Love Is Fair" - Barbra Streisand
