The Anti-Valentine's Day Mix

Lucy mentioned that she was making a Valentine's CD for someone that she maybe doesn't like so much anymore...which got me to thinking about all the twisted, sarcastic not-really-love songs there are, and how great they would sound on a mix.

So I made this one

The Anti-Valentine Mix
1. AC Newman “Changeling (Get Guilty)”
2. Anton Barbeau with the Bevis Frond, “I Remember Everything”
3. Love Story in Blood Red, “Please Why? (Short Stack)”
4. The Anderson Council, “Meghan Allison”
5. The Archie Bronson Outfit, “Dart for My Sweetheart”
6. Art Brut, “People in Love”
7. Good Shoes, “We Are Not the Same”
8. Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers, “Don’t Mess with Cupid”
9. The Reigning Sound, “We Repel Each Other”
10. CaUSE co-MOTION, “This Just Won’t Last”
11. Hell on Heels, “Dogs Records and Wine”
12. Aidan Moffat and the Best-Ofs, “Living with You Now”
13. Beulah, “If We Can Land a Man on the Moon,”
14. American Music Club, “The Dance”
15. Giant Sand, “The Desperate Kingdom of Love”
16. Barton Carroll, “Brooklyn Girl, You’re Going to be My Bride”
17. The Chapin Sisters, “Let Me Go”
18. I Love Math, “Some Bridges are for Burning”
19. The Insomniacs, “Leave”
20. Linda Perhacs, “Hey, Who Really Cares?”
21. The National, “Mistaken for Strangers”
22. The Old 97s, “Can’t Get a Line”

It was fun. I'm sure I missed a bunch of good ones.

What Nuggets album did that Reigning Sound track fall off of? And how did you not follow it with Dinosaur Jr.'s Repulsion? Or was that saved for the director's cut?

Hey,, the Reigning Sound track is from Too Much Guitar, which is fairly recent, 2004 I think. If it was a Nuggets track you'd already have it. And "Repulsion" is a good idea. I barely scratched the surface. You should make one, too. It's sort of fun, even if you've been with the same person for 20-plus years and view Valentine's Day mainly as a chance to have a nice dinner at home.
