'Love' Songs. Valentine's Day Mix: Part 1

Love songs come in all forms. Some are your basic kind, some are about lost love, and some are a weird, stalker-ish obsessive kind of love.  As you've probably noticed from my blog, I have pretty eclectic tastes.... so, without further hesitation, please enjoy your Valentine's Day 2011 mixtape.
