Love Lockdown: The Diddy Wah Edition

Well I know that Valentine's Day is supposed to be a cynicism-free celebration of unabashed romance but... fuck that. Here's five ditties from the flipside of love -- full of heartache, confusion, anger, deception and rejection. The files are all roughly ripped from vinyl records and so my sincere apologies if the sound is a bit rubbish. Enjoy.

"I Believe To My Soul"---Ray Charles and his Orchestra (LimeLinx)
