Valentine’s Day has come to have many meanings to many different types of people.

To some it’s an artificial holiday for an upsurge of candy sells. To others the day is a quiet testament that you are single. The those attached, it’s a day to celebrate with your significant other.

To help celebrate Feb. 14, it feels auspicious to create a list of 20 songs dealing with the subject of love: the good, the bad and the ugly.
