Valentine's day love songs?

Asked by charliecompany34 (7804points) February 11th, 2009

so you dined and you waxed romantic, but it could not be possible without your own home-made compilation CD of fave “love songs.”

you pour the wine, dim the lights and turn on, yes, “that” song or CD compilation with all his and hers romantic tunes old and new.

what are your love songs that will cinch the night for you?

Hm..
Not necessarily for Valentine’s Day, but a romantic one that is definitely not 90’s, is
“Te Amo Corazon” by Prince

Perfect Moment by Tinderbox

The whole album Mr. Magic by Grover Washington, Jr. Some of the sexiest music ever recorded.

Anything by Al Green, Barry White, and Jimi Hendrix blues.

tennesseejac's avatar

@cyndyh seriously i wish you had a little sister,
lots o’lurve for naming Hendrix blues for V-Day

Blondesjon's avatar

I like a little Fuck Her Gently by Tenacious D.

tennesseejac's avatar

Fuck Her Gently, that is my favorite…

unless she wants to get a little Closer (NIN) then I want to f**k her like an animal
and I want to feel her from the inside

cyndyh's avatar

@tennesseejac: Yeah, with my luck, if I had a little sister she’d be the un-Cyndy. LOL! Hendrix blues is great all the time, but it’s particularly sexy for V-day.
