VALENTINE

A few sunny alternatives to the dreary love ballad.

If, like me, you like to express your love musically, but would rather poke your tongue in a light fitting than endure four minutes and nineteen seconds of Chris De Burgh, then ‘Side A’ is your sunny, uplifting alternative to the heart-wrenching power-ballad. If your bleeding, melancholic heart is prone to sinking deep into the depths of despair like a ship hitting an Ice Burgh, then ‘Side B’ is for you:

Happy Valentine’s Day.
