Its Valentine's Day! A day of love and flowers and candy and spinning in fields of flowers!!! Whee!
I don't really care about Valentine's Day either way. Some people hate it, some people love it. I don't have strong feelings about it at all. I think its weird that people hate it because who hates love? But then I started thinking about all my own weird quirks and I realized the husband and I were talking the other day about how much I love sad love songs...
Really, I do. Some of my favorite songs are about heartbreak and sadness. Its not because I like broken hearts, its not because I'm heartless, and its not because I hate love. Really, I think the reason that I love sad songs is because they're so beautiful and emotional. I like tender songs, I like songs that make you feel like the emotion was ripped from the singer as they were singing it. They just seem more meaningful to me or something.
So in honor of Valentine's Day, I'm sharing some of my favorite heartbroken songs. Tell me they don't get you right in the gut! I dare ya! :)
Say Something- A Great Big World feat. Christina Aguilera
Your Letter- 112 (sorry about the crappy video quality)
Just Give Me a Reason- Pink feat. Nate Ruess
You Were Mine- Dixie Chicks
My Immortal- Evanescence
Funny Feeling- 112
