Fresh Staff Pics: Love & Heartbreak Songs For Valentine’s Day

It’s that time of year again…

Wait! The holidays are over, so what time of the year is it exactly? It’s the time in which half the population will be buying roses and eating fancy candle lit dinners, while the other half snuggles under the blankets and eats a whole box of Russel Stover chocolates while watching Nicholas Sparks’ “The Notebook” in a puddle of tears. Yay?

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we asked our jocks what their favorite lovey dovey and heartache – heartbreak – cry until you can’t cry anymore songs were.

Here are their picks…

We’ll start off with Jim, from the Jim & Kim Morning show…

Extreme – More Than Words

Come on, it’s one of the greatest love songs of all time. My wife always says she knows my feelings for her run so deep, that I don’t have to say the words. In fact she always says, the less I say, the better.

♥ ♥ ♥

The Pretenders – I’ll Stand By You

I like slow dancing to this song with my wife, because it takes no actual ability to dance.

♥ ♥ ♥

Norah Jones – Come Away With Me

One of the greatest sultry voices of all time with very honest music. No studio tricks, no heavy orchestration, no auto-tune. My wife says it reminds her of me…you know, it needs something.

♥ ♥ ♥

Beyonce – Crazy In Love

Ok, I’ll admit it, I will do the “bite my lower lip” dance when this comes on. I will often express my love for my wife through interpretive dance. Which is probably why we don’t go out much.

♥ ♥ ♥

Bjork – Possibly Maybe

I love this and all Bjork songs. I loved him when he played tennis, you know, Björn Bjork.

Up NEXT… Karen Carson’s Love & Heartbreak Picks…

Let’s keep it moving along with Karen Carson, middays on Fresh…

The best songs about the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Love! Ever ALL OF A SUDDEN notice the lyrics of a song you’ve heard countless times before? Yeah.. that’s love baby! You are head over heels and suddenly that corny love song you’ve always ignored before becomes your favorite or you are MISERABLE in a break up and WOW… “Now I get this song!” You can relate right? Here are some of my favorites:

♥ ♥ ♥

Bruno Mars – It Will Rain

Best Current Love Song: Bruno’s “It Will Rain.” What can I say? I’m a die-hard Twilight fan! Even IF this song didn’t have ties to Bella and Edward and one of the greatest love stories of all time, Bruno’s haunting vocals make you FEEL like you ‘d do ANYTHING for the one you love!

♥ ♥ ♥

The Script – Breakeven

Best Current “We Aren’t Together” Song: Doesn’t it ALWAYS end up that one of you is just taking it better after the breakup than the other? These Irish boys describe it PERFECTLY.

Goyte’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” runs a close second…

♥ ♥ ♥

Usher – There Goes My Baby

Best Love Song: Guys… want your girl to fall head over heels for you? Try Usher’s “There Goes My Baby.” I can’t tell you what this song does to me. Seriously, I CAN’T!

♥ ♥ ♥

Dave Matthews Band – Crush

Still my favorite after all this time: Dave Matthews Band “Crush.” I will NEVER tire of this song!

♥ ♥ ♥

Estelle – Thank You

Trying to FORGET someone this Valentine’s Day? Try Estelle’s heartbreaking “Thank You.”

♥ ♥ ♥

Jennifer Hudson – No One Gonna Love You

Ladies, for your man… Jennifer Hudson’s “No One Gonna Love You (Like I’m Gonna Love You)!”

Up NEXT… Dylan’s Love & Heartbreak Picks…

Let’s see what Dylan had to say…

50 Cent – In Da Club

When this came out I was in a particularly awesome short-term rebound “relationship” and it was “our song.”

♥ ♥ ♥

Smashing Pumpkins – Stand Inside Your Love

It wasn’t one of their monster hits, but it was playing during a first kiss years ago with a girl who’s basically amazing. I was not pleased when that relationship ended. We’re still in touch. Now all she has to do is dump her boyfriend and move back to NYC.

♥ ♥ ♥

Pitbull – I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)

I thought this was the dumbest song ever when it came out. Then all of a sudden I found myself spouting “I know you want me… you know I WANTCHA” to my girlfriend at the time and she started doing it back. Amusingly enough it was totally “our song” before long. Are you surprised that relationship didn’t work out?

♥ ♥ ♥

The Proclaimers – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)

My high school girlfriend demanded I take her to see that awful movie “Benny and Joon.” I think she loved it. I didn’t. This song was on that soundtrack (and a huge hit) during that puppy love, and I never tired of laughing at the line “havering to you” and wondering what the hell it meant.

♥ ♥ ♥

Liam Lynch – United States of Whatever

Because I pissed off the last girl I was involved with, so she ended it by unfriending me on Facebook instead of speaking to me like a human being. HAHAHAHA! Whatever.

Up NEXT… Michael Maze’s Picks…

Let’s see what our pal, Maze, chose for his playlist…

So, here’s the thing: I may be slightly sappy from time to time (DON’T judge me lol!) I’ll make this list short and sweet!

Billy Joel – Lullaby (Goodnight, My Angel)

When my daughter (now 13-years-old) was little, I used to sing this song to her all the time. Recently, we were on a road trip together and out of nowhere she told me that someday when she gets married, “Lullaby” will be the father/daughter song we dance to and that she wants to sing it to her baby someday just like her daddy would sing it to her. I’m man enough to admit I got choked up… WAY CHOKED UP… but, isn’t that what being a dad is all about?

♥ ♥ ♥

Christina Perri – A Thousand Years

I don’t really have a special tie to this song but, she is playing a special Fresh 102.7 Valentine’s Day show! I’m sure there will be lots of “moments” for people when she sings it!

♥ ♥ ♥

Liz Phair – Supernova

Now THIS is my kind of love song!! I’m pretty sure that anyone who could sing this song to me with the same passion and conviction as Ms. Phair would send me spinning… You’d OWN me!

♥ ♥ ♥

Babybird – You’re Gorgeous

THIS is one of the greatest songs of love and passion ever written… Just look at the lyrics and if you get slightly hot and start daydreaming of instamatik cameras and ice cubes then you are MY KIND OF LADY!

[metrolyrics artist=”Babybird” song=”You’re Gorgeous”]

Up NEXT… Christine’s Picks…

Here are Christine‘s picks for songs of love and heartbreak…

Guns N’ Roses – Sweet Child O’ Mine

Sweet lyrics from Axl Rose and an even sweeter guitar solo from Slash. It’s just one of my favorites, a love song that rocks!

♥ ♥ ♥

The Eagles – Wasted Time

Just fantastic lyrics about wondering if the time you spent in a relationship was wasted, when ultimately it doesn’t work out. This one makes me think about past relationships.

♥ ♥ ♥

James Morrison – Love is Hard

A song that perfectly describes love. Maybe a slightly cynical view but after my experiences, exactly how I feel.

♥ ♥ ♥

Jason Mraz – I Won’t Give Up

I just love the sentiment. I want to inspire someone to write a song like this and if he looked like Jason Mraz, it wouldn’t hurt.

♥ ♥ ♥

David Gray – This Year’s Love

A great song that’s basically saying this next love has got to last because I can’t take anymore heartbreak. I can relate!
