Keep These 10 Songs as Far Away From Your Valentine's Day Playlist as Possible

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, it seems like everyone is scrambling to find a hook up way to impress a crush or a significant other.

A dozen roses and a box of chocolates may seem like a cheesy and overdone gift, but it's a safer bet than some other ideas. We're music folks, so the idea of a sexy, personalized playlist sounds like a great gift...only give those lyrics a quick scan first.

Plenty of seemingly innocent "love songs" have menacing undertones. Obsession, stalking, and drugs shouldn't be the focus of your V-Day playlist.

We want to help you get lucky on Valentine's Day, so do yourself a favor and avoid these 10 songs (and maybe avoid farting under the covers, too).

Upcoming Events

The Police- Every Breath You Take

Every move you make Every vow you break Every smile you fake Every claim you stake I'll be watching you

This is probably the most well known Valentine's Day no-no song. There's nothing romantic about being stalked by a crazy person.

James Blunt- You're Beautiful

Ah yes, unrequited love. "My love is pure, I saw an angel, of that I'm sure" sounds sweet, except this so-called angel is riding the subway with another guy.

Plus, it's pretty lame to put a James Blunt song on a romantic mixtape anyway.

The Cardigans- Lovefool

"Pretend that you love me, leave me, leave me, just say that you need me." If desperation and gigantic blue eyes are your thing, you may stand a chance on the 14th.

Death Cab For Cutie- I Will Possess Your Heart

If the song title wasn't enough of an indicator, this tune gets super creepy.

"There are days when outside your window, I see my reflection as I slowly pass, and I long for this mirrored perspective when we'll be lovers, lovers at last." Hmm, maybe Zooey Deschanel and Jenny Lewis dig that stalker vibe.

Lou Reed- Perfect Day

"Oh, it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you."

Drinking Sangria in the park, feeding animals in the zoo, and watching movies sounds pleasant...especially if you just took a bunch of heroin.
