cronopio took so many of the good ones, like "the model", "dry your eyes" and "the body breaks"....but here is my list

magnetic fields "absolutely cuckoo"
ronettes "be my baby"
moldy peaches "anyone else but you"
rolling stones "love in vain"
joanna newsom "this side of the blue"
brian jonestown massacre "i love you"
bonnie prince billy "agnes, queen of sorrow"
camera obscura "pen and notebook"
richard thompson "beeswing"
the zombies "i want her she wants me"
velvet underground "i'll be your mirror"
air "venus"
van morrison "tupelo honey"
bright eyes "first day of my life"
reindeer section "strikes me down"
bob dylan "i want you"
tom waits "train song"
spiritualized "i think i'm in love"

(listen to the words of the last song and you will figure out who i'm spending valentines day with this year)

and while everyone else is busy eating out, i'm going to be in the company of my room with my spacemen 3 and spiritualized records
