An Ode To Singles – Top 10 “Love Stinks” Songs For Valentine’s Day

This post is for those who dread the idea of Valentine’s Day like some unwanted disease. The people who claim it’s the most bipolar holiday ever created (like me). Maybe you’re one of them:

The Workaholic:  For you pre-dawn revelers who are just too busy to cram a love life in your deadline-infested schedule. Not only is Valentine’s Day just another day at the office, it’s meaning is about as important to you as the paper submitted through your shredder.

The Victim:  Whether you’ve been susceptible to a philandering tease or a gut-wrenching case of infidelity, it’s never fun to be on the wrong side of a dirty relationship.

The Hopeless Romantic:  Waiting for someone to sweep you off your feet, but keep finding lemons? Maybe it’s time to stop living vicariously through The Notebook.

The Dispassionate Cynic:  If there is such a thing as “true love,” than Cupid is hogging it all for himself.

If you fall under any of these categories, this post is for you.

“Love Stinks” – J. Geils Band

A mandatory addition to the list regardless of how semi-crappy the song truly is.  So I posted Adam Sandler’s hilarious rendition from the film The Wedding Singer instead; featuring a classic example of one of his famous fits of anger.

“Sometime Around Midnight” – The Airborne Toxic Event

This is a song that does not suck.  Sad?  Certainly.  Unless your name is Don “Magic” Juan, you’ve probably been afflicted by a similar situation.

“Here Today, Gone Tomorrow” – The Ramones

“Here Today, Gone Tomorrow” is themed around the love/hate relationship.  Such as (in extreme cases) the couples that break up every three months, then get back together, then break up, and so on.  You here such false declarations as these on the reg, “No, dude.  I’m telling you, it’s for sure over this time.”  But Dude knows.  That’s just a big ole’ pile of verbal poopy.
