Whether you're paired up with a special someone or flying solo this V-day, these five Valentine’s Day jams are sure to make you feel the love in all it's wild and wonderful forms, without being too sappy and saccharine.
“Love Shack” by The B-52's
If this song doesn't make your feet move then you might want to check for a pulse! This all time party tune is all about one wild party with a Chrysler that seats about 20, so come on and bring your jukebox money!
“My Funny Valentine” by Ella Fitzgerald
"My funny valentine, sweet comic valentine, you make me smile with my heart" croons the ever graceful Ms. Fitzgerald. Appropriately named, this jazz favourite celebrates one’s true love everyday as if it were Valentine’s Day. That’s a lot of roses and chocolates...
“You're the First, the Last, My Everything” by Barry White
There is something about Mr. White's voice that may have caused a baby boom in itself during the 70's and beyond. If you want to kick it back old school soulful romance style, seek no further than the great lines: "You're my reality, yet I'm lost in a dream".
“Gold” by Chet Faker
Simplistic romance in its earliest honeymoon stages couldn't be summed up better than by Chet Faker with "You gotta know, I'm feeling love made of gold. I'll never love another one". A great chill out tune for the newbie lovers who just held hands for the first time.
“And I Love Her” by The Beatles
Classic romantics rejoice with the stunning lyrics and guitar riff-rich melody that describes love in its truest form; "Bright are the stars that shine, dark is the sky. I know this love of mine will never die… And I love her." Enough said.
