In case the bombardment of retail, online, television, billboard and radio ads hadn’t informed you just yet, Valentine’s Day is less than a week away. If you haven’t made plans for your significant other, for God’s sake, close this tab and get some dinner and/or show reservations pronto. We’ll wait. Couldn’t get any? Well you’re in deep trouble, gentle reader. If you’d still like to be in a relationship come February 15th, you might want to take advantage of Google Music’s Valentine’s Day sale.
While not quite as dramatic as the holiday music sale back in December, the “For Lovers For Le$$” promotion offers a collection of 81 albums for a reduced price of $6.99 each (in most cases). It’s an eclectic mix that should satisfy fans of every genre, whether you’re trying to woo a certain someone or console yourself over rejection from same. Get your lonely on in whatever way you choose, but if romance is your aim, you gotta go with the classics: albums from Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, Etta James, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and The Temptations are all on offer.
Most of the albums have a distinctly amorous theme, though a lot are simply popular collections from the last few years of pop and rock. Like the previous sales, there’s no indication of when Google intends to end the sale, though sometime after next Tuesday is a pretty good bet. As usual, you can purchase the albums from your phone or computer, and listen to them via the web or any Android device.
