Valentine's Day Songs

Here are some tragic, twisted, and interesting songs about love to go with your wonderful Valentine's Day!

* The Bed Song by Amanda Palmer

This song just pulls at my heartstrings. It's about the course of a relationship where the two grow apart and don't talk about it until it's way too late. It's frustrating because they seem to still love each other despite the lack of communication. The video is absolutely beautiful, as is the music and Amanda's raw emotion. Watch with some tissues.

* Boyfriend by Ben de la Creme

This is the best Justin Beiber parody ever, featuring awesome horror references (including Silence of the Lambs, Misery, and The Human Centipede), homoeroticism, and creepily obsessive love. The song is hilarious, clever, and far superior to the original song.

* The Horror of Our Love by Ludo

This song shows how love isn't always sappy and sweet, but can be dark, consuming, and horrific. I love the deliciously dark imagery and ominous melody. Love songs don't have to be boring and cookie cutter. I would also recommend Love Me Dead for another of their dark, unconventional love songs.

* Fuck You by Garfunkel and Oates

Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome are just being honest with their song about budding love. It starts out sweet and unsure, then gets real. Just bypass all that romance, flowers, and chocolates with this song to get straight to the point.

Happy Valentine's Day!
