Anti-Valentine's Day Playlist

Whether you're single or simply not prone to sappy sentimentality, Valentine's Day may not be a cause for celebration.

 If you're looking for song suggestions to go along with your less-than-romantic mood, take a look at Touch Me, I'm Sick: The 52 Creepiest Love Songs You've Ever Heard by Tom Reynolds (ML65 .R653 T68 2006). Reynolds covers both big hits and deep cuts, organized by themes. Examples include stalker songs such as "Every Breath You Take" by the Police and "Run for Your Life" by the Beatles as well as songs about incest, necrophilia, outright bitterness, etc. Each song includes a discussion of the track and why it's creepy.

Ironically, although the author acknowledges that he took the book's title from the Mudhoney song, that piece didn't make the list. If you want to hear it, you'll find it in on Superfuzz Bigmuff (Annex CD Box 17)
