Be My Un-Valentine


This was originally a playlist of 20 songs I put together for anti-Valentine's Day program for TVB correspondent God Is My Codependent's music streaming site.

Note: "Song for the Dumped," "Your Dictionary," and "You're Breaking My Heart" make this decidedly NSWF.

Unfortunately, I couldn't quite recreate the whole thing. Missing songs after this:


SeeqPod - Playable Search

Missing in action: Jill Sobule, "When My Ship Comes In"; Richard Shindell, "Are You Happy Now?"; Nilsson, "Cuddly Toy"; Fountains of Wayne, "Hat and Feet"; Peter Holsapple and Chris Stamey, "I Want to Break Your Heart"; Jim Lauderdale, "Wake Up Screaming"; Matthew Sweet, "I Thought I Knew You"; Marshall Crenshaw, "I'm Sorry (But So Is Brenda Lee)." In addition, "Who Will the Next Fool Be?" should be sung by Charlie Rich, but I couldn't find that, either.

I would have included "Love Stinks" by J. Geils Band.

How about Lyle Lovett, "God Will"?

and who keeps on loving you
when you've been lying
saying things aren't what they seem
Well God does, but I don't
and God will, but I won't
that's the difference between God and me

"I Feel So Good" is easily the most chipper death-to-love song that I know. Beyond which: LOVE the Holsapple & Stamey, and that's one of my (many) favorites of Crenshaw.
