Ten Songs For Hating On Stupid Idiot Valentine's Day

Beach Boys - "God Only Knows" Key lyric: "If you should ever leave me... the world could show nothing to me / So what good would living do me?" A deep song with conflicting messages, wrapped up in a beautiful package. Completely parallel, emotion-wise, with "Wouldn't it Be Nice?" Brian Wilson is a genius.

Otis Redding - "I've Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now)" Key lyric: "You are tired and your love is growing cold / My love is growing stronger, as our affair grows old" An anti-love song list wouldn't be complete without him, so we look to the king of heartbreak, Otis Redding. Otis always understands. I want to find the woman who made him so sad and bash in her face.
