Love Songs: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

In 1976, Paul McCartney wondered if the world had "had enough of silly love songs." In 1998, Billy Ocean warned that they often "make you cry." If you haven't had enough, join us this Valentine's Day when we'll spend an hour with some local music mavens to talk about love songs: the overwrought, the overplayed, and even some you may have overlooked. What makes a good love song so touching? What makes a love song so bad it's almost good? And why is it that, when we're brokenhearted, even the very cheesiest can bring us to tears? Tune in Thursday and call us with the love songs you love, and the ones you hate so much, they tempt you to take a vow of celibacy!
