Jack White wasn’t the only artist to use V-Day to release a new video – The Big Sleep dropped “Valentine” from their recently issued album, Nature Experiments:

As previously reported here, the Polyphonic Spree asked fans to create their newest music video – “What Would You Do.” The contest winner was announced today (the band also released “Phase 2” tour dates).

Paul McCartney recently posted an app called “share the love” on his Facebook page allowing fans to make “themed greeting for friends and family” with photographs, personalised messages and clips from his new album, Kisses On The Bottom (click to hear the album). Tieing into this was a Valentine’s wedding proposal contest. Here’s the response from a man named Earl proposed to on Paul’s page via the selected entry by a women named Karyn: ““I must say that I am overwhelmed, I have known Karyn for over 40 years of which most of that time we have gone our separate ways. As a Godsend we reunited last summer and miraculously took up where we left off some 40 years ago. Karyn has been and is the love of my life, she truly loves me and revolves her entir…e day around loving me.
So the answer is yes. We have picked July 27th to be married

Also, Paul performed “My Valentine” at The Grammys on Sunday – with Joe Walsh playing Eric Clapton’s part from the record. More on that here.

Last year some music was also released for Valentine’s Day

Finally, did you know The Who’s Live at Leeds – aka the best live album ever (especially in the 2 CD 2001 reissue version) – was recorded on Valentine’s Day 1970?

Though there’s scarcely a romantic lyric in the entire 127 minutes of the deluxe edition, there are these eternal young man confused sentiments:

“Dizzy in the head and I’m feeling blue
The things you’ve said, well, maybe they’re true
I’m gettin’ funny dreams again and again
I know what it means, but …

Can’t explain/ I think it’s love
Try to say it to you/ When I feel blue”
