not that i want to hear strangers in the night for three months around the holiday ...

... but i truly prefer valentine's day music* to christmas music. here's our favorite station's playlist on this day -- simply lovely, if you ask me.

as this is pledge time, locals who share the sensibility might even be moved to make a contribution. a bit of sarah vaughan, big star, and that DeVotchKa song in february sure beat the silver bells i've heard for the preceding for months.

To be fair, "Fairytale of New York" manages to be both a christmas song as well as a Valentine's Song (even if it's a rather cynical take on both).

That looks like a heck of a playlist.
