Welp, once again it’s Valentine’s Day… that dreaded/celebrated-weirdly-constructed 24 hours designated to showing people we love that we love them. (Pro-tip: You can do this 365 days a year!).
Since I don’t have much love for this so-called “holiday of love” I’ve been doing a anti-Valentines series of mixes the past couple years called Paperhearts. Not so much love songs although there are some of those in there. It’s more heart-centric tunes that display the full-spectrum-wild-wonderous-wonky range of this mysterious blood pumper that we all have in our chests and that is supposedly responsible for much of the good (and bad) that we feel in this life.
Hope you enjoy… behind my Autumn series this is becoming my favorite annual mix. You can check out the full mixtape above on Spotify or check out some of the individual songs via videos below. Don’t forget to give oodles of love to the artists that give us so much musical enjoyment… hopefully you can find a new fave in this list!
Much love to you on this day no matter what state your heart is in.
