Happy Valentine's Day, Popdust readers! If you're looking for a way to send a message to the special someone in your life, but your local drugstore is all out of Reese's Hearts and Tron-themed cards, might we suggest a pop song? These ten tracks from the current Billboard Hot 100 can send a message to any person in your life—and all for the cost of an e-mail!
FOR YOUR CRUSH OBJECT:
Bruno Mars, "Just The Way You Are"
FOR YOUR MAYBE-TWO-TIMING-YOU LOVER:
New Hollow, "Boyfriend"
FOR THE ACCORDION AFICIONADO IN YOUR LIFE:
Edward Maya and Vika Jigulina, "Stereo Love"
FOR YOUR BUDDY WHO HAS A BIT OF A SENSE OF HUMOR ABOUT HER ROMANTIC FRUSTRATION:
Justin Bieber feat. Jaden Smith, "Never Say Never"
FOR THE FRIEND WHO MAKES YOU FEEL UNREASONABLY SAPPY EVEN THOUGH YOU'RE FULLY AWARE THAT S/HE IS MANIPULATING YOUR EMOTIONS:
FOR SOMEONE YOU REALLY LIKE, BUT IN A TOTALLY NON-CREEPY WAY (SERIOUSLY) (EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVEN'T SPOKEN TO THEM IN FOUR MONTHS):
Luke Bryan, "Someone Else Calling You Baby"
FOR THE SPECIAL SOMEONE YOU WANT TO SEDUCE IN UNDER FIVE MINUTES:
Lloyd, "Lay It Down"
FOR THE PERSON WHO NEEDS TO BE ANNOYED OUT OF YOUR LIFE ASAP:
Avril Lavigne, "What The Hell"
FOR THAT DUDE YOU KNOW WHO WAS MORE THRILLED BY SWITCHFOOT'S OFF-CAMERA WIN THAN BY ANYTHING ELSE AT THE GRAMMYS:
Sick Puppies, "Maybe"
FOR YOUR SOCIALLY MALADROIT PAL WHO COULD PROBABLY USE A COPY OF HOW TO PICK UP GIRLS MORE THAN A VALENTINE:
Britney Spears, "Hold It Against Me"
Still searching for the perfect beat? Here's a bonus Valentine courtesy of the song that's probably going to be the next chart's top dog:
FOR YOUR PAL WHO SHOULD REALLY TRY OUT FOR RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE (OR A PANELIST SLOT ON I LOVE THE '90S)
Lady Gaga, "Born This Way"
