A Valentine Mixed Tape

Happiest of Valentine’s Days to you all. I made a playlist (under the creative supervision and with extensive music database of Sir Brian Kenyon) to celebrate the terribly wonderful emotion of love (or lurve). There’s a little bit of everything in here – and I tried to avoid overly popular music with the hopes of sharing a musical gem or two. Don’t have a valentine? I love a song about love lost and unrequited desire more than I do a song about love so good, so – I made sure that there’s something for everyone.
