I'm making a Valentine's Day mix cd for the music-loving man I've been seeing and I need some help. I've already included every song that I know of that would be appropriately romantic (see below), I'm hoping that the hive mind can recommend some other songs that would be fun, cheeky, clever and include just enough romance to be appropriate. We won't have been seeing each other that long, so as much as I love the Smiths I'm trying to avoid proclamations about what a pleasure it would be to die at his side, etc.
Here's what I've got so far:
"Baby," by Devendra Banhart
"Baby Let Me Hold Your Hand," by the Detroit Cobras
"I Want A Love I Can See," by the Temptations
"Blame It On the Trains," by Art Brut
"Never Had Nobody Like You," by M. Ward
"Your Arms Around Me," by Jens Lekman
"Settling In," by Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
He has pretty eclectic tastes, so throw your best at me, whatever it is. Thanks for your help!
