The News Is Not All Bad

At last, Mubarak is gone -- good riddance, and just in time for Valentine's Day, or as it might be unfortunately abbreviated, "VD."

Did you know the internets contain thousands of playable songs with themes relevant to romance, love, lust, sex, all that? It's true! I here present a few songs on the bleaker, more heart-rending side of love, if only because it sets VD up for a redemption. What else is love good for, if not redeeming its own pain?

Sleater-Kinney, "One More Hour":

Joanna Newsom, "Does Not Suffice":

The Beatles, "Julia":

The Postal Service, "Nothing Better":
