Seven Unusually Credible Valentines Rock Songs
Happy Valentine's Day! If you're lucky in love, or still longing to find the one, today is still a good day to get sentimental and play some of the prettiest rock songs around.

We would usually throw together some power ballads at this point, but we all know it's just a charade. Why not trawl through our teenage iTunes collections and pick out some truly beautiful music?

This is subjective, of course. And the lyrics won't always be on topic, but the sound of the songs ought to suit your mood today.

Consider it post as a prompt for sharing your own bedroom-worthy tracks with YouTube links in the comments.

Deftones "Teenager"

Amid cutting edge metal on "White Pony", Deftones dropped this surprisingly tender treat right in the middle. It's beautiful.

Jeff Buckley "Everybody Here Wants You"

A more suitable choice might have been "Lover, You Should Have Come Over" because it has the most heartfelt lyrics on the planet. Seriously, that line about giving all his blood... never mind. This song is from his second (unfinished) album. It might be RnB, but don't ignore it - you might learn something from the delicate guitar work here.

John Lennon "Love"

This is from his fantastic "Plastic Ono Band" album. Pretend the song isn't about Yoko Ono and it sounds even better.

Queens Of The Stone Age "In The Fade"

A live version with the soulful sounds of Mark Lanegan on vocals.

A Perfect Circle "The Nurse Who Loved Me"

Tool singer Maynard James Keenan sings about a nurse who gives him special treatment.

Radiohead "All I Need"

A highlight from "In Rainbows", which could be Radiohead's most warming album yet. Analog bass FTW.

Smashing Pumpkins "Disarm"

Some songs are too beautiful to put into words - unless you're Billy Corgan. It sounds glorious, and hasn't aged a day.
