KTSW Music Staff Picks: Love//Loss Playlist

By Conner Yarbrough
Music Director

It’s that time of year again–the time when we’re all reminded either how loved or how alone we are according to the rest of the world (if you care about that sort of thing). It’s Valentine’s Day and the KTSW music department has created its first staff picks list.

This month, in honor of the holiday, we’ve created a list of songs that express both the good and bad side of this thing we call love. Lucky for us (and you), love and heartache are subjects musicians have never not talked about, so there are tracks in here for everybody.

Listen to the KTSW Music Staff Mixtape: Love//Loss below and check the posters to see who chose your favorites!
