TWJ Valentine’s Day Mix

For as long as there’s been music, there’s been music about love. And so it’s an imposing task to pick and choose songs about the feelings that make us do extraordinary — and extraordinarily petty — things, all for one mix. I don’t think a day goes by when I don’t hear a song that’s about either side of love: The beautiful, inspiring side. The jealous, conniving side. Both always present, both able to be carried to us on a tune. But truthfully, there’s probably a lot more to it than that.

Enjoy the mix. Both sides.
