They just don’t make love songs like they used to. After vigorously planning a Valentine’s Day date, you don’t want to risk killing the mood by pulling up some Justin Bieber on your iPod. Don’t worry, 4E has you covered, with our Valentine’s Day Fixat10ns (I know, we’re a week early).
Take Me Home Tonight- Eddie Money Kick off a night of romance with this 80’s classic. Eddie Money just helps you tell it how it is.
I Want To Know What Love Is- Foreigner Start to slow things down with Foreigner’s big hit. After all, isn’t the reason we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day because of this age-old quest for love?
When a Man Loves a Woman- Michael Bolton Ah, Michael Bolton. Continue to set the mood with the sweet, soulful sounds of love emanating from this track.
Secret Garden- Bruce Springsteen Bruce shows his soft side with this 90’s classic. The saxophone part might actually bring you to tears.
Your Song- Elton John Let’s be honest, what is more romantic than someone writing a song for you? Bonus points if you can actually perform this one for your date.
Burning Love- Elvis Presley By this point in the playlist, we’ve come at you with a lot of heart-melting ballads, so change things up with this little number from The King.
I Think We’re Alone Now- Tommy James & the Shondells Take a trip WAY back in the time machine with this hit about forbidden love as we get to the real meat of the playlist.
Baby, I Love Your Way- Peter Frampton Can’t find the words to tell your special someone how you really feel? Let Peter Frampton do the talking.
Bump N’ Grind- R. Kelly While he may not exactly qualify as a “hopeless romantic,” R. Kelly certainly knows how to set the mood.
Let’s Get It On- Marvin Gaye The seminal “slow jam,” there’s no song better suited to capping off a romantic playlist than Marvin Gaye’s big hit.
