... with VALENTINE'S DAY: I've never been a big Valentine's Day guy, but I have always liked The Replacements' "Valentine" and Elvis Costello's cover of "My Funny Valentine."  Beyond that, my thoughts typically drift to the Velvet Underground's "I'll Be Your Mirror," The Beatles' "In My Life," and the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows." I think it's probably very difficult to write a straight-ahead, universal love song, and these three are great.

...with BURT BACHARACH! The debonair pop composer, arranger, conductor, record producer and occasional singer whose hit songs in the 1960s distilled that decade’s mood of romantic optimism, died on Wednesday at his home in Los Angeles. He was 94.  His musical legacy is massive, having co-written “(The Man Who Shot) Liberty Valance,” "Baby, It's You," “What the World Needs Now Is Love,” “The Look of Love,” “What’s New Pussycat?,”  “Walk On By,” “I Say a Little Prayer,” “This Guy’s in Love With You,” “(They Long to Be) Close to You,” “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do),” and even "Always Something There To Remind Me,"just to name a few.  The Stereogum obit has comments from Dionne Warwick.
