I'm Thinking Of Starting A Line Of Evil-Voodoo Greeting Cards

Every week, when I post one of these playlists, I resist the temptation to say that this one is my favorite.

...but this one is my favorite! Grin.

Being that Valentines Day is on Thursday (kidding!!!), the theme for this week's playlist is obvious. It's about love, and the journey that is love. And this week, I went a little overboard.

If you listen to only one of these songs, let it be Duncan Sheik's "For You", because that's what love is all about, in my opinion. Then again, if you're in need of a bit of angst, Ben Folds' "Song For The Dumped" is as good as it gets. Or hHead, with the fantastic lyric "Thought you said you'd die for me. Now I know you lied to me." Ha!

The entire playlist is a 360 degree view of love, beginning with being asked on a date, followed by finding love, then breaking up. Oh the bitterness! But it continues through grieving, acceptance and moving on before ending with the optimism of "I believe that my life's gonna see the love I give returned to me."

    Being, And Love
    This week's playlist is really broken down into four parts, as follows:
