A Dark Valentine's Day Playlist

Last year, I did Snackie's Self Love Day celebration for Valentine's Day, but this year, well, I had something a little different in mind. I thought, while there is a lot of amorous love being pitched today, well, there are also some darker aspects to this day, and well, why not explore that as well. So, I present to you who may not be superhappy today a heaping helping of loneliness, cheating lovers, skeezy hookups breakups and depression.

This was about 2 hours work, so if it doesn't flow right, well, time was a factor.

(All items on this list are either Youtube videos or MP3s which are legal for me to distribute)

Papercuts by Broadcast
Playgirl by Ladytron
Careless Memories by Duran Duran
To Be Free by Emiliana Torrini
Lose that Girl by Saint Etienne
Everybody Loves Me But You by Juliana Hatfield
Ladykillers by Lush
Song for the Dumped by Ben Folds Five
Jumpers by Sleater Kinney
Floods by Flin Flon
Eleanor Rigby performed by Ray Charles
Cecilia by Simon and Garfunkel
Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac
I Wanna Die by Jolie Holland
Temporary Loan (Demo) by Edith Frost
If you Knew by Neko Case
I Changed the Locks by Lucinda Williams

Can you believe that I am still relatively well adjusted after putting that together? I can't.

That's neat. I will definitely watch some of them. I mean, until I start wanting to cut my wrists. Then I will stop.

YouTube should have a feature where you can make and watch video playlists right on the site. THat would be such a natural for them.

I think the only one that makes me want to slit my wrists is Eleanor Rigby by Ray Charles...
