It’s almost Feb. 14, when couples everywhere are celebrating love, except for those who aren’t. For them, we’ve put together a list of the best anti-Valentine’s Day songs. The list could be much longer, a fact that became clear as we perused the possibilities.

“Love Hurts” by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, 1975

This song was a huge hit for Nazareth, but it was also released by a half dozen other acts. “I know it isn’t true, I know it isn’t true, love is just a lie, made to make you blue…”

“You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette, 1995

This song will give chills to any man thinking of doing Morissette wrong. “Does she know how you told me you’d hold me until you died, ‘til you died, but you’re still alive…”

“I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, 1969

Several artists released versions, but it was Dionne Warwick’s that topped the charts. “What do you get when you fall in love? You only get lies and pain and sorrow, so far at least until tomorrow, I’ll never fall in love again.”

“Love Bites” by Def Leppard, 1987

Originally a country ballad, producer Mutt Lange brought the song to Def Leppard and it’s still their only No. 1 hit. “I don’t want to touch you too much baby/ ‘Cause making love to you might drive me crazy.”

“I Hate Myself for Loving You” by Joan Jett and Desmond Child, 1988

The song got Jett nominated for a Grammy. “I want to walk but I run back to you, that’s why I hate myself for loving you.”

“The Salt in My Tears” by Martin Briley, 1988

When the English session musician released some of his own material, this song charted. “But I won’t cry for the wasted years/ ‘Cause you ain’t worth the salt in my tears.”

“50 Ways to Leave your Lover” by Paul Simon, 1975

This was Simon’s only song to reach No. 1. He wrote it soon after his divorce from Peggy Harper. “Hop on the bus, Gus, you don’t need to discuss much, just drop off the key, Lee, and get yourself free.”

“Love Stinks” by Peter Wolf and Seth Justman, 1980

Written by Wolf after his marriage to Faye Dunaway, this song wraps up this list appropriately. “I’ve been through diamonds, I’ve been through minks, I’ve been through it all. Love stinks.”
