http://cdbaby.com/playlist/15 -Â Everyone knows that love is one of the most common subjects of popular songwriting, but what about the other side, the not romantic songs? There is a rich tradition of heartbreak and loss being the subject of some of our best known and loved songs. The blues, after all, predates pop music by a ways, and many blues songs are lamenting love gone wrong. So, songs like Â “Love or Confusion”, “I’m Thru With Love,” “Sour Times”, to basically the majority of Morrissey’s career; we love to hear about people’s problems with love. One thing’s for sure – love stinks. Â In this episode, Kevin and Peter play songs that examine the down side of love and bring you a little a little bit of Valentine’s history, plus a popular, if unconventional, song about love via Mario Kart.
