There once was a time, perhaps a long, long time ago when you would pass out Valentines. It was an exciting experience (because you were in elementary school,) it was basically picking out your favourite superhero themed cards and writing your name over and over.


ListenListen live:
CBC Radio 3


You’d fold the sheets along the perforated line and one by one write your classmates names on the back. To: them. From: you. You’d stuff each little Valentine into those incredibly small white envelopes that never closed – no matter how many times you licked the seal.

After a few years and tens of Muppet Babies Valentines later you discover two things:

1. That writing your name in cursive is no longer exciting
2. Valentines day is a chocolate covered Hallmark holiday to the extreme

Let’s put the fun back into Valentine's cards by putting together a list of sweet and perhaps hilarious lyrics you could write on them, as nothing says “I love you” quite like Shad’s lyric “Maybe one day you’ll carry my fetus.” or Joel Plaskett’s “You’re a wrecking ball in a summer dress.”

ANY GREAT (OR TERRIBLE) LYRICS COME TO MIND?
Just imagine writing them on a card… and go!

Post your suggestions on the blog or tweet @CBCRadio3

That's awesome.

The first line I thought of when I saw the title to this blog post was "maybe one day you'll carry my fetus"... I couldn't use that one though. Bummer.

I think I'd use a Beatles song. The one that's coming to mind right now is "I wanna hold your hand"...

ANY GREAT (OR TERRIBLE) LYRICS COME TO MIND? Just imagine writing them on a card… and go!

The only one that immediately jumps to mind is the first line from "Strange" by The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart: "When everyone was doing drugs, we were just doing love". It's cheesy as hell but sort of made me smile the first time I heard it.

Another one is the entire A Certain Smile, A Certain Sdness album by Rocketship. It was song titles like "Kisses Are Always Promises" and "I Love You Like The Way That I Used To Do".

Super cheesy twee pop makes good love songs.

Boston Cream Pie, not to slag it in the least, is pretty good, but it's really cake.

So there.

I made a really nice true pie the other day, with a bought crust I'll admit. About 6-7 small tasty apples, rhubarb compote mixed in, and also a good cup or more of frozen blueberries.

Which exploded during cooking and coloured most everything.

It was yummy. Oh yeah, a topping of mixed granola, demerara sugar and butter. Nuts too.

PJ song - thin air - written by Stone

There's a light when my baby's in my arms and I know she's reached my heart in thin air.

PJ song - Parachutes

And love,... what a different life

PJ song - Indifference

i will hold the candle till it burns up my arm

i'll keep takin' punches until their will grows tired

i will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind

hey i won't change direction, and i won't change my mind

how much difference does it make

those are some of my favorites!

Go and see PJ this fall, you won't regret it!

for my wedding I danced to Razor Love

these lyrics are magic - It's going to take a Lotta Love - Neil freakin' rocks!

Now all I've got for you,

Is the kind of love

that cuts clean through.

All I got for you is razor love

It cuts clean through.

You really made my day

With the little things you say
