Every year, Valentine's Day brings the same old sappy cards, chocolates, and heart-shaped jewelry — stuff that's nowhere near as special as retailers would have you believe. Instead, why not impress your sweetheart with some music inspired by love?
The last selection in this set — one of loss, love, and finally relief — remains one of the most haunting, depressing love songs ever recorded. If you've recently lost love, keep that one off your playlist.
