two hearts in 3/4 time



I'll Make You a Tape (Vol. 5 - Extended Valentine's Edition)

download: be my valentine?

1. Justin Timberlake feat. T.I. - My Love
2. CSS - Let's Make Love and Listen to Death from Above (Spank Rock Remix)
3. Daft Punk vs Yeah Yeah Yeahs - World Maps (Along Came Jones Edit)
4. Annie - Heartbeat (Phones Maximo Remix)
5. Madonna - Hung Up
6. Teddybears - Yours to Keep (Annie Remix)
7. Christina Aguilera - Ain't No Other Man
8. M.I.A. - URAQT (Diplo Mix)
9. Kylie Minogue - Can't Get You Out of My Head (Soulwax Elektronic Remix)
10. the Blow - Parentheses
11. the Stone Roses - She Bangs the Drums
12. John Lennon - Real Love (just the chorus)

And so nobody feels left out, if...

You're fine with VDay, but you don't like dancing...
download: REM - At My Most Beautiful (from Up)

You reject the crass consumerism of this Hallmark holiday, but still have a life partner who shares your radical values...
download: the Smiths - Shoplifters of the World Unite (from the Singles)

You prefer to stalk your "objects of affection" from afar...
download: the Stone Roses - Standing Here (from the Complete Stone Roses)

Those objects of affection are much younger than you. Perhaps you meet them via instant messenger or MySpace or because you're R. Kelly or a Republican congressman...
download: the Affair - Jailbait Date (from Yes, Yes to You)

You long for the company of someone much younger than you. That someone is also dead, and perhaps played by Kirsten Dunst...
download: Air - Playground Love (from the Virgin Suicides Soundtrack)

You are in love with the person described above...
download: the Magnetic Fields - The One You Really Love (from 69 Love Songs, Vol. 1)

You are single and relieved...
download: Fiery Furnaces - I Broke My Mind/Single Again/Here Comes Summer (live in Toronto) (album version from EP)

You are single and lonely...
download: Amy Winehouse - Love is a Losing Game (acoustic) (only avail. on the US version. jerks.)

You are rich and lonely...
watch: the Beatles - Can't Buy Me Love (from A Hard Day's Night)

You are emo and lonely...
download: Bright Eyes - Lover I Don't Have to Love (live at Bonnaroo 2006) (album version from Lifted...)

You are single and bitter...
download: Swan Lake - the Freedom (via Jagjaguwar - from Beast Moans)

You take out your bitterness by crafting a nine minute video featuring Scarlett J, that is directed by John Cassavetes less talented son, where you run poor Scarlett of the road in your Porsche...
watch: Justin Timberlake - What Goes Around Come Around (Director's Cut) (from FutureSex/LoveSounds)

Happy Valentine's. I will spend mine watching Lost with my girlfriend, because she doesn't have cable, and therefore, I cannot watch the hockey game. That, my friends, is love.

And if you're my lovely girlfriend...
download: Sam Cooke - Nothing Can Change This Love (live from the Harlem Square Club) (from One Night Stand: Sam Cooke Live at the Harlem Square Club)

As always, if you like what you hear, go and buy it. I'm sure they'll make great last minute gifts for your significant other.

now playing: Wilco - Jesus, Etc
