SEXBEAT VALENTINES PLAYLIST

Here at SEXBEAT we like to mark the key dates in the calendar and for Valentines, we’ve gone all out. And while those in relationships will have no problem getting their bump n grind on, no matter what’s playing through the speakers, we’re here to help the singletons out there who’s only plans for Friday 14th are currently limited to; drinking a bottle of wine alone in your room while watching My Demon Lover, then rocking back and forth clicking through Facebook photos of your ex posing with some other average looking douchebag with a shit haircut, or skinny chick with too many teeth, wondering how long it would take neighbours to find your bloated corpse floating in an ocean of romance starved tears.

So here’s the perfect soundtrack to that evening. It’s full of tearjerkers, punk fury, a few special pop gems and the odd glimmer of hope. There’s also a song by George bloody Michael and you won’t get that too often round these parts.
