Hello Saferide - "Valentine's Day"
Not to bring down the mood after Alex's great mix, but this seems the perfect time to share a V-Day song that's a bit more cynical. Sweden's Hello Saferide sings of leaving an unsatisfying mate in her "Valentine's Day." This clearly isn't a song about love, although lust does make a cameo. One of the last couple verses, to give you an idea:
So I hope you are sorry and I wish you the worst
And that’s all I had to say
I think we have fish sticks if you need dinner
This year, on Valentine’s Day
If you're in Atlanta, note that The EARL is hosting a "Valentine's Day is for Suckers" event tonight with chanteuse Diamond Lil, Blondie from the Clermont Lounge reading poetry (and presumably strutting her stuff), and music from girl punk outfit The Coathangers.
