Generally, I’d actually refer to it as DOWN WITH LOVE Day. Because [beside the fact that I find myself perpetually–if not militantly–single] it’s a loathsome concept that is the child of capitalism. Here, here!
But harden not my heart…I sort of missed making glittery little hearts for all of my friends (because why should they go without?) this year, and now I feel a little bad. You already know that I like you best, but how to show it?
Then it donned on me.
Manu Chao. The goddamned amazing singer/songwriter of whom I can’t get enough, and surprisingly tops off my Spanish-language music charts (I was surprised to see that neither Juanes nor Los Ateciopelados, or even Instituto Mexicano del Sonido, took the gold). Anyway, not only is his often-moving music incredibly politically motivated, but it’s also very listenable and rather upbeat considering the general heavy themes.
That said, one of his more lackadaisical songs that just puts a smile on my face is “Me Gustas Tu.”
And whatdya know?
It’s my Valentine to you! ¡Sí, me gustas tu!
