Valentine's Day Mix For 2012 (Last Year Ever) By Britt


Hey baby. Yeah that's a 500 Days of Summer picture. I hope you like it; I KNOW you do. Fun fact:  I also grew up on a misreading of The Graduate. Life is better that way.


So here are 7 songs to encapsulate your favorite greeting card holiday after The Sweetest Day. you know you'll be getting some serious over-the-pants action, so I thought I should help you out and set the STELLAR MOOD.




"First Love" - The Maccabees


sure I've posted this before, but I don't get sick of it. it reminds me of how truly fleeting first love is, even though Cat Stevens says the same thing and in fewer words. And what the fuck is up with Orlando's voice? Whatever.


"Maggie May"- Rod Stewart


I had a Maggie May....but that wasn't her name. God, Maggie May is a name for a cow. See also:  Barry Manilow




don't feel bad for him. he has more money than you and I ever will.


"Roslyn"- Bon Iver & St. Vincent


hesistation, blah blah blah. did you forget did take your birth control, Annie? why yes Justin, and I'm ovulating! 




"Armchairs"- Andrew Bird


YES. YES. YES.




"Push It"- Salt 'N' Pepa


you were trying to get your point across and obviously the signals weren't that strong.




"You Belong To Me"- Carla Bruni


she's FRENCH! and HOT! I'm not expanding on this; I clearly do not need to!




"Blue Jeans"- Lana Del Rey


sometimes it is all a very bad idea, but yet, like reality TV....we do it anyway.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
