February 14, St. Valentine's Day, a day to celebrate romantic love and shower the object of your affections with cards and gifts. Or, a black day to sit on the couch eating a sad snack'n cake for one hot out of the toaster over. Either way, there are plenty of folk songs perfect for your Valentine's Day mood and we've assembled two on-demand streams for the holiday.

The love stream is filled with the joy that comes when two hearts are united as one. The alt-love stream tells the other side of the story, what happens after the fog of passion has lifted and when those two hearts are spending a lot of time text messaging other people.

Take your pick of either of the 4 hour-long streams, offering up plenty of old favorites and new discoveries (some suggested in the Folk Alley blog).

Enjoy! Or don't... it's your choice.

Please play Green Fields of Summer sung by Peter Wolf and Neko Case) for Joe and Kara. It is a perfect Valentine Day song and was the first dance song at their wedding.

Great stuff! I love it when I hear new artists that I haven't been exposed to before. Excellent ear candy.
