i want a boy who's so drunk he doesn't talk

In honor of the impending friday the 13th, followed by Valentine's Day, and the fact that I don't really believe in either one... here is a playlist to bring you down.  Considering that a few years back I made an epic 3-disc mix for my friends for Valentine's Day, and in response one of them told me that "if you think about it, these songs aren't actually that happy" I've decided to just roll with that and choose songs that flat-out are not that optimistic about love or relationships.

The "< / 3 Valentine's Day Mix"
bang on - the breeders
do you know how to feel? - the bell
lover i don't have to love - bright eyes
keep yourself warm - frightened rabbit
cigarettes, wedding bands - band of horses
not your lover - blitzen trapper
look what you've done - jet
poke - frightened rabbit
you can do better than me - death cab for cutie
what's a girl to do? - bat for lashes
good arms vs. bad arms - frightened rabbit
new york i love you - lcd soundsystem
slow show - the national
love's lost guarantee - rogue wave
two beds and a coffee machine - savage garden
let it fall - lykke li
the dress - blonde redhead
