Valentine's Day!

I know Valentine's Day was yesterday, but here are some great love songs anyway!

"Strange Powers" by Magnetic Fields
I think this song has some of my favorite lyrics ever. The Shins cover is also great.

"You Are The Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne
I've been a Ray fan since his first (AMAZING) album, Trouble. This song, from his most recent album, Gossip In The Grain, is a horn-filled soul jam.

"I Want You" by Bob Dylan
One of my favorite Dylan songs! For all I know, this could all be a political metaphor that's way over my head, but I'd rather just take it as a simple love song and leave it at that.

"I'm In Love With A Girl" by Big Star
Perfect...but unfortunately I can't find it on YouTube!

"Let My Love Open the Door" by Pete Townshend
This is probably one of the happiest songs ever.

That's it for now. Happy Valentine's Day!
