Don't look now, but Valentine's Day is once again looming on the horizon. One of our most polarizing holidays, Valentine's Day either reminds you of the seemingly endless frustrations of being single or, as with most of the listeners who shared stories for this edition of All Songs Considered, it's a chance to celebrate love in all of its wonderfully unpredictable, beautifully diverse forms. On this week's show, listeners dedicate songs to the ones they love. Hear music from Bjork, The XX, a classic tango from Carlos Gardel and more.
If you've got a dedication, share it in the comments section below.
From previous Valentine's Day shows, we've got guest DJ sets from John Waters and Tom Jones, lesser-known love songs, and our favorite breakup songs.
