DJE's V-Day Comp: Songs About Love, and Stuff
2:36 PM
So, I was thinking I'd repeat my Christmas effort and make a little Valentine's Day comp. This one's easier, since every asshole has some song about love, whether it's a happy one, or a sad one, or whatever. I tried to avoid a lot of the absurdly overplayed obvious things ("I
Feel Love", "Love Bites") in favor of more interesting stuff. And don't worry -- there's a good mix of rock in with the "dje"-type stuff.

There's also a track in there from my old band, The Haywards, from the EP that represents my only recorded output with them. The song is "Valentine's", and David wrote it specifically for a VD show we did.
