I’m not that big on Valentine’s Day. As my husband can attest, I’m really easy to buy for on this day. I don’t like chocolate. (Yuck!) Flowers don’t like me. (I have a brown thumb.) Flowers lose the will to live in my presence. I do love jewelry but my more practical side thinks there are better ways to invest that much money.
I’m happy with a card and a nice dinner. I know that I am loved everyday. Hubby doesn’t have to prove it all on one day.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m a sucker for romantic gestures. But Valentine’s Day seems so forced. Bah humbug!
In that spirit, I present my five favorite anti-Valentine’s Day songs. Just because.
Too Gone, Too Long – En Vogue
The harmonies are perfect. The message of telling an ex lover that you are over him is the ultimate revenge.
Finally Made Me Happy – Macy Gray
How bad was the relationship when his leaving finally made you happy?
50 Ways to Say Goodbye – Train
Just a fun song. My lover didn’t leave me, they died.
Learned From the Best – Whitney Houston
Don’t try to come back now. I learned how to break a heart. I learned from you.
Karma – Alicia Keys
What goes around, comes around. You did me wrong and the universe is coming for you.
Hope you get to spend the day with someone you love doing something you love!
