While I am firmly in the camp that Valentine's Day is a fabricated holiday designed to increase flower, candy, and jewelry sales (of items like dazzling diamond earrings or shimmering diamond bracelets at IW Marks, 3841 Bellaire Blvd or 2623 Town Center Blvd in Sugar Land), I am here to help the people. Just one month ago, our listeners helped compile a list of the top "deal closing" songs. (Naturally, this occurred on Sade's birthday ... Sade being the matron saint of all things boot knockin'.) Now for the first time publicly, after input from many experts in this field, I give you the top 40 songs from the few hundred we received from our listeners on that fateful day. And they are ....

No Ordinary Love - Sade

Can You Stand the Rain - New Edition
I'd Die Without You - PM Dawn

If any of you would like to download the songs on here to your iPod, I was kind enough to create an iMix of this playlist. Open your iTunes software and click here. (If that doesn't work, go to the iMix home page on iTunes and search on "1560 The Game - Deal Closers".

ALSO, if you're looking for something to buy that lovely lady in your life, I give you the purchasing advice of Youtube legend and consummate ladies man, Kige Ramsey ....

Roses, dinner, spa, and diamond ring. Got it. You the man, Kige.

I've now done all I can do. If you don't score on Valentine's Day now, you have no one but yourself to blame. (Unless you're name is Roger Clemens, in which case you can blame the Hendricks brothers. Seemed to work well yesterday.)

Sean- you're fired. Where is the Clemens' gossip. It is Valentine'd day, and yesterday I found out Clemens' wife took it in the butt from McNamee. Who cares about Sade? I want to know if you know anything about HGH..
