Music makes the world go round!

This Valentine’s Day, go old school and treat your loved one with a special love song mixtape. Be it songs that remind you of your other half, songs that remindsyou of each other or songs that gets you both going – compile them together and play it all day or night long on this special day!

Here’s a list of songs that we love to help you get started.

1. Hero – Enrique Iglesias

Released from Enrique Iglesias’ second English album Escape, Hero is one of those songs that will make any girl just fall even more head over heels for the guy (you). Opening with the words “Let me be your hero”, include this in your mixtape and you’re all set!

2. Breathless – Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Known as somebody who normally doesn’t sing about anything positive, much less love, Nick Cave goes all out with this beautiful track! The lyrics “happy hooded bluebells bow and bend their heads all a-down, heavied by the early morning dew” describes the flutter of butterflies you feel when your sweetheart enters the room. Perfecto!

3. Lay Lady Lay – Bob Dylan

I think I speak for anyone who appreciates good music when I say that if I had a time machine, you’ll find me in 1969 laying across Bob’s big brass bed.

4. This Guy’s In Love With You – Faith No More

The song starts off with “You see this guy, this guy’s in love with you” and moves into lyrics that just purely expresses a man’s love for his woman so honestly now, what better way to tell your sweetheart you’re in love with her than with this song?

5. Can’t Take My Eyes Off You – Lauryn Hill

Simple and sweet, this is hands down the best version of this song!

6. Hey Lover – LL Cool J featuring Boyz II Men

Mix LL Cool J with the romantic styling of Boyz II Men and voila, you get this gem! This song made the trendy rapper and R&B a sure thing back then is still a hit right now. Sexy and upbeat, this song will have you and your partner grooving to its lovely tune.

7. I’ll Be There for You/You’re All I Need – Method Man featuring Mary J Blige

“Nuttin’ make a man feel betta than a woman” is probably one of the most honest lines ever written in a hip hop song. Method Man teams up with Mary J for this remix ode to his queen.

8. Patience – Guns N’ Roses

Axl Rose has written some of the best love songs of all times and between Patience, Sweet Child O’ Mine and November Rain, we vote for this to be on the mixtape! Express your feelings for your girl by telling her how you think about her everyday and that there is no doubt she’s in your heart now with Patience.

9. Love At First Sight – Kylie Minoque

Thought about giving up on love till you met your partner? This one’s a definite must on your mixtape then! It’s upbeat, it’s fun, it’s sexy, it’s love!

10. On and On – Erykah Badu

On and on is the perfect wrap up to your mixtape just because it’s sexy, oh so sexy.

Enjoy lovebirds!
