Each year at All Songs Considered, we like to celebrate Valentine's Day with music. Filmmaker John Waters and crooner Tom Jones played guest DJ for us in years past. We've also done lesser-known love songs and our favorite breakup songs. This year, we're turning the mic over to you. Dedicate a song to a certain someone you love or miss. Or you could dedicate one to that dirtbag you recently broke up with. Either way, tell us the song, who it's for (first names only, please) and the story behind it.

Record your dedications, thoughts and stories on our Soundcloud page:

 

You can record directly into the Soundcloud site or upload a pre-recorded file. We'll play some of the stories on an upcoming edition of All Songs Considered. Remember: Tell us about the dedication, don't just play the song. We'll add the song to your story later.

You can also leave your dedications in our comments section, too. (But recording the audio is better!)
