Here are some songs for those not into Valentine's Day (which were weirdly way easier to compile than the V-Day songs)!
1) The Dresden Dolls - Coin Operated Boy
This is their first hit on their debut album and probably the song most people know by them. It's either a song about loneliness or one about sex toys. You decide. I think it's about the fear of relationships and real emotions.
2) Jenny Owen Youngs - Fuck Was I
Love is a tumor, something that will inescapably harm in the relationship in this song. It's a beautiful song with great imagery.
3) The Jane Austen Argument - Staying Single
Here are all the reasons not to be in a relationship, including some I have never heard before. I love that they include weird breakup stories from the audience that are more bizarre than I ever thought possible.
4) Voltaire - Future Ex-Girlfriend
Ah, the joys of being with intolerable people. This relationship only lasts a week, but some animosity is definitely built up. The Keanu line is the best. :)
5) Death Cab for Cutie - Tiny Vessels
This is a song from the point of view of someone awful. He told a girl he loved her, which wasn't true, and he won't talk to her about what's wrong. That girl could have no idea what is wrong and he's just going to dump her out of the blue. Douche.
Until next year!
