When U Love Somebody
by laurend630 @ February 3, 2010, 2:31 PM
my favourite song by far is “over the pond” by the album leaf. it’s the best song for valentines day because it’s a quiet contemplative song you can sit back with a special person and just enjoy the moment.

Take Care by Beach House – Teen Dream
Though I haven’t had a chance to check the lyrics so um, hoping it’s all lovey.
by AXE @ February 3, 2010, 2:36 PM
AND most adorable video everrrrrrrr.
by Jordan @ February 3, 2010, 2:36 PM
absolutely hands down...
by gmm06 @ February 3, 2010, 2:47 PM
ok, i'm going to go with an obvious one;
When U Love Somebody – Fruitbats -from Mouthfuls
-I know, I know. But what better day to have a song that’s just fun, and lighthearted, although that’s coming from someone whose been pretty lucky.
by blayn @ February 3, 2010, 2:52 PM
It's gotta be...
Clark Gable – The Postal Service. Me and my lady still listen to this album and we’ve been together 5 years and it just reminds us of how good it is being together. It also opened our eyes to kozyndan. Fantastic stuff that reminds both of how good things can be.

"When I Go Deaf" by Low
And we will make love,
We won’t have to fight,
We won’t have to speak,
And we won’t have to lie.

Oldie but Goodie
Iron & Wine’s cover of The Postal Service’s “Such Great Heights” — two sub-pop artists for the price of one.

Together We’ll Never
(Swallow My Pride was a close second.)

"no one's gonna love you" by band of horses
my husband and i got married to this song…
by soojee @ February 3, 2010, 3:08 PM
'Love Buzz' Nirvana
The Shocking Blue’s version is great too, but that’s not Sub Pop anyhow.
by Damnzig @ February 3, 2010, 3:08 PM
My Favorite V-Day Song is...
“Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)” by Flight of the Conchords. Hands down.
by kellypvanv @ February 3, 2010, 3:11 PM
i would say Blitzen Trapper as well but i don´t want to sound repetitive
Vetiver – Double
by Terence Hill @ February 3, 2010, 3:20 PM
Vetiver - Double
Furr by Blitzen Trapper is great as well, but i guess it’s already taken

Give the prize to Ireland, we need it.

“Young Love Delivers” by Oxford Collapse. It was so sad when they broke up, like part of my hipster soul moved away and took all the cocaine.

Make your wine of my worship...
For me I think it’s a toss up between Blitzen Trapper’s ‘Lady on the Water’ and Mark Lanegan’s gorgeous cover of ’I’ll Take Care of You’

Breakfast in Bed
To me, it represents the good will and warmth one might feel toward even a one night stand as a decent, worthy human being.
by jessiehdc @ February 3, 2010, 10:35 PM
Touch me I'm sick - Mudhoney
And I was hooked to subpop for the next couple of years. Then in the mid nineties I felt abonded and the love died. But I grew back, and we’re in our second love fase right now…
by Hawkboy @ February 4, 2010, 12:27 AM
Fever Dream by Iron & Wine
This one always makes my girlfriend nestle that little bit closer, even when she’s asleep.
by gingerninja @ February 4, 2010, 1:28 AM
"About a Girl"
by the very underrated and obscure Subpop band Nirvana.

WHY NOT MARK LANEGAN?

Business Time - Flight of the Conchords
Well, I guess it depends on what you’re looking for on Valentine’s day…
by harraton @ February 4, 2010, 9:48 AM
an obvious choice...
band of horses – no one’s gonna love you
by ruffles @ February 4, 2010, 11:48 AM
Please stop dancing - Magnetic Fields.
Portland, the album leaf.
fuuuuuuuuu i’m excited.

The Fall-Outs "Talk"
“Talk” a b-side to the “Sleep” 7". I know, I know, it was released on Super Electro. I bought it from YOU!!!!!!!!
by your kidding me @ February 4, 2010, 4:04 PM
2/14/10 A Classy Day to Love
Undoubtedly the perfect song to serenade a lady on VDay is…
Flight of the Conchord’s "The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)
Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be so serious! I would fall in love even more if my boyfriend sang me this song and compared me to a high class prostitute!
by morganyoowho @ February 4, 2010, 5:29 PM
And the winner is...
“Two Way Street” by Blood Circus!
Yes, I love Blood Circus and I don’t care what you think.
(“Swallow My Pride” by Green River came to mind first, but since Johnny already declared it to be “a close second,” I had to come up with something better…)
by Big Fucking Gaywad @ February 4, 2010, 7:34 PM
Dun dun duuuuuun
Pencils In The Wind – Flight of the Conchords.
So magical.. so meaningful.. the song of love..
by jeremysexytime @ February 6, 2010, 9:51 AM
This really depends on whether you are in a relationship or are a loser
For you losers – Gone for Good by The Shins
For all others – I’m putting my money on a dark horse candidate – It’s You – DMM. Put this one in the playlist before Get Off and you’re virtually guaranteed the greatest sex in the history of the world. Or not. It’s difficult to tell when doing these thought experiments.
by Jason @ February 7, 2010, 6:37 AM
A single song doesn’t do Valentines Day justice. So I’m nominating the whole Afternoon Delight album, which is totally in the spirit.
And my Afternoon Delight will last well into the evening, if you get my drift.
by keith uk @ February 12, 2010, 3:14 PM
Looking forward to the new album leaf LP. Best sub-pop song for valentines? Shed Your Love – The Helio Sequence.
by Shorton @ February 15, 2010, 5:50 AM

Oh, and Damien Jurado
by ErickWA @ February 18, 2010, 12:08 PM
Recent activity with Rein Sanction, (Mark Gentry, Brannon Gentry and Daren Bedford) include a new release on CD Baby/iTunes. If you were absorbed in the 90’s by Rein Sanctions gut-wrenching, guitar-driven music… more is out there and coming.
