A Suitable Song for Valentine's Day

I have been trying to think of a song to post for Valentine's Day and, I must admit, I was at a bit of a loss. I'd considered Ian Hunter's "All the Good Ones Are Taken" or Rod Stewart's version of "Some Guys Have All the Luck," but neither of them seemed quite right. And then it hit me. I have the perfect song for Valentine's Day. Nothing could be more fitting. Sadly, I could not find an audio file of it on the Web (beyond the short, little, sample snippets on Amazon and CDNow and their like). We'll then have to make due with the lyrics. So grab your copy of the J. Geils Band's album Love Stinks (or your DVD of The Wedding Singer, whichever is closer) and sing along....

"Love Stinks"
by Peter Wolf and Seth Justman

You love her
But she loves him
And he loves somebody else
You just can't win
And so it goes
Till the day you die
This thing they call love
It's gonna make you cry
I've had the blues
The reds and the pinks
One thing's for sure

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Two by two and side by side
Love's gonna find you yes it is
Ya just can't hide
You'll hear it call
Your heart will fall
Then love will fly
It's gone that's all
I don't care what any Casanova thinks
All I can say is
Love stinks

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

I've been through diamonds
I've been through minks
I've been through it all
Love stinks

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

(Love stinks)
