It's Friday the 13th, only one day before VD. Wow, talk about a double whammy. And as no one was up to sharing their tales of the lovelorn, the playlist is all about yours truly. A little love, a little sadness, a fitting tribute to the time.

Sharks! On Fire! (We Had a Danceoff in a Thunderstorm) ... Sharks! On Fire! *
Mysterons ... Portishead 

There are so many others that I would have put on this list had time permitted.
Oh well... may just play them myself anyway.

Thanks for listening.
