Breakfast of Champions: 2/14
Like Andre 3000, I just want to say one thing: Happy Valentine's Day. It's the day of love song lists, and my 20 Songs About Love includes:

* 5 sweet (but not too sweet) songs, and
* 5 songs about marriage
Listen to the tracks, watch some videos, and let me know what you think I've left out in the comments if you like.
