Ten Songs To Get Busy To On Valentine's Day
Sex Robots - "Think I'm In Love"
Key lyric: "I think I'm in love / I think I'm in la la la-la la la la la la la-la la la la la la-la-la la la la la la-la la la la love"
St. Louis band Sex Robots always gets right to the point. The songs are short and oh-so-sweet and this song blasts through all of those nervous, crushy emotions with simple honesty. ("I feel so outta my miiiiind!")
AA Bondy - "There's a Reason"
Key lyric: "The love that's tearing you down / Is the love that will turn you around / Say it is so"
He's not very well known, but this singer-songwriter single-handedly renewed my faith in new music some years back. His songs always remind us that all bad love can go good, and that all good love can make you stronger.
Patti Smith - "Because the Night"
Key lyric: "Love is an angel disguised as lust / Here in our bed until the morning comes"
One of her most uplifting performances, the poet Smith embraces the full emotion and the weird power that one can find in love.
