“Give me some music; music, moody food
Of us that trade in love.”
(William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra)

One of my favorite music sites is NPR, so I’m borrowing a music theme they posted last year for Valentine’s Day. I liked this idea because it covers the spectrum of possibilities from “All you need is love” (Lennon/McCartney) to “Love stinks!” (J. Geils Band).

The idea is to post a song that can be both a love song and a breakup song:

If you can’t think of one, that’s okay – post a song that’s one or the other. What’s your favorite love song?
Favorite anti-love song?

Happy Valentine’s Day!
(Yeah, yeah.)

[Edited to add – if you link to a song on YouTube or elsewhere and the song title isn’t in the link, it’s helpful to type in the song name and artist so readers don’t have to click on the video link to find out what song it is. Thanks!]
