Valentines Day: love or hate it, it's hard to ignore.
Every store has prepared for this day for weeks: you couldn't get far without a spray of red balloons, chocolate boxes, and stuffed animals accosting you. Even today, ESPECIALLY today, have you noticed those around you? Are some people in festive reds and pinks? Are some purposely in black? We all seem to have an opinion about the holiday.
But, commercialized love aside, there are plenty of mediums where love has reigned supreme. Whether it's art, literature, or music, we all have had something that has pulled at the heartstrings of even the tiniest of Grinch hearts.
As the resident office DJ, I asked everyone today, "what's your favorite love song?" The answers I received are as varied as the people that make up our company. But they each had an answer, without hesitation.
So without further ado, I present to you the HoyStarkHagan love mix. Happy Valentine's Day from us to you.
