Valentine's Day is fast approaching and whether you're making a special playlist to commemorate the occasion or not, I think you'll definitely want to have these songs in your library. In the past, I've created both Valentines and Anti-Valentines playlists which were both well received and lots of fun! Here are a few of my favorites from both collections.
Two of my favorite Anti-Valentines songs are I Don't Like You by Eva Simons and 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover by G. Love and Special Sauce.
I Don't Like You makes a great climb at around 64 rpm's:
50 Ways to Leave Your Lover ( a Paul Simon cover) works as a flat road (93 rpm's until the 3 minute mark, where the pace picks up until the finish).
My two favorite picks from the Valentine's playlist are I Want You to Want Me by Chris Isaak and Big Love (Live) by Fleetwood Mac.
I Want You to Want Me (a Cheap Trick cover) works well as a flat road:
Big Love (Live) by Fleetwood Mac is one of my all time favorite songs for seated speed work:
