This list could have been in the hundreds, thousands even. And seeing as that would take way too long to compile (it is only a 40-hour work week), we narrowed it down to some personal favourites. No, not Damian’s favourites. Forget that guy. Cam made these picks (Hi!).
Valentine’s Day seems like a very indie-rock-friendly occasion. Think of how many boys and girls are currently whipping up mixtapes, mix CDs, Spotify/iTunes playlists to try and woo their future spouse. That is pure romance. Flowers die and chocolate gets eaten.

Perfume Genius “Hood”
Yeah Yeah Yeahs “Maps”
The White Stripes “We’re Going To Be Friends”
The Jesus & Mary Chain “Just Like Honey”
Suede “Stay Together”
The Wannadies “You and Me Song”
My Bloody Valentine “Sometimes”

Yo La Tengo “Our Way To Fall”
Blur “To The End”
The Dead Milkmen “Punk Rock Girl”
