The Gavel Groove: V-Day Vibes

Is Valentine's Day another capitalist ploy to get people to equate material objects with love? Maybe. But is it still fun to get chocolate and give people heart-shaped cards? Yes. Listen to the culture section's favorite love-themed songs that capture all that love has to offer. Romantic or platonic, blissful or tragic, we have it all. Happy Valentine's Day!
