The Valentine’s Day Show

This is my favorite show all year. I play songs about love, hate, breaking-up, and female/male angst. If you want to call and make some requests for your favorite sappy or angry love songs, Wednesday from 8 to 10pm at KRUI 89.7 is the time to do it.

I’ve included a shameless self promotion of a painting I did a long time ago about a relationship gone wrong. It’s my artistic contribution to Valentine’s Day:

Here’s a sampling of stuff I’m going to try and play:

1. The Kinks, Nothin’ in the World Can Stop me Worryin’ Bout That Girl
Possibly one of the best songs about relationships and cheating.
2. Buzzcocks, Why Can’t I Touch it?
I don’t know what they are trying to touch, but I can imagine.
3. Pixies, Here comes your man
4. Echo And The Bunnymen, Lips Like Sugar
I think we all enjoy lips like sugar.
5. Joy Division, Love Will Tear Us Apart
Every relationship goes through this on some level

6. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, I let Love in
7. Sleater Kinney, The size of our Love
8. The Smiths, How soon is Now?
A popular Smiths ditty about love and &*%@.
9. The Breeders, It’s The Love
10. Portishead, Wandering Star
11. The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Anemone
12. Spacemen 3, I love you
13. The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, 2 Kindsa Love
Damn, they rock.
14. Guided by Voices, Chasing Heather Crazy
15. Husker Du, I don’t Want to know if you are lonely
Way to have a heart Husker Du.
16. Nirvana, Love Buzz
17. Vaselines, Sex Sux (Amen)
I think they were catholic.
18. PJ Harvey, Send His Love to Me
I’ve included a performance below.

19. Morphine, I know you part two

Valentines day play lists everywhere should always have an Elliott Smith track.

Tom Wait’s version of the heavily covered song by Phil Phillips.

    I have never heard of #2 on the playlist, but I think I would like to make it my theme song…

    Oh , how I miss you. I wish we were within a state or two of each other – it’d be good to catch up.
