Ah, Valentine’s Day. A day for lovers, or those simply in love. What a beautiful day to spend with your significant other! But alas, do you know who this St. Valentine actually is?
St. Valentine actually was beheaded for holding true to his beliefs and marrying Christians who were going against the Roman Emperor…sad.
Now the holiday is known for cards, candy, roses, and maybe a romantic dinner thrown in. What about those who find this holiday hard? The one’s who have been spit on by love, or just cease to ever find it? I know there are a handful of you who find this holiday complete hogwash.
Here’s a list of songs about the loveless, angry, unrequited, & broken. Some old, and some new. Enjoy!
