Weekly Mixtape: Valentine’s Day

It happens once a year. Shops and public places are draped in hues of pinks and reds. Chocolates shaped like hearts and roses adorn shelves. Happy couples hang onto each other, while florists rake in the profits. Some people’s hearts swoon at the thought of St. Valentine’s Day, while others feel sick at the very mention of Cupid’s shenanigans.

This mixtape has a little something for everyone. Are you a lover? Side A is filled with some pretty little gems sure to feed your emotional appetite.
Bad break up? Bitterly or happily single? Just hate Valentine’s Day? Side B may be the better place for you to chill, and maybe fill the void left by the flying man in the diaper who didn’t visit you this year.
So unwrap those chocolates and chalky message hearts, pour some wine, and enjoy the sweet sounds of love, anger, and emotional heartbreak.
