Need upbeat, only slightly offbeat, love songs

For the last few years I've been making my wife Valentine's day mix tapes. At this point I've pretty much burned through all the songs that have personal meaning or I can come up with off the top of my head. I need some suggestions for this year. For perspective think "I need you" or "My Kinda Lover," by Billy Squier; U2s version of "Everlasting Love," "I'm Gonna Be" by The Proclaimers, "I Want You to Want Me" by Cheap Trick. Basically I'm looking for songs by well known bands that are obscure or long forgotten, or songs from bands I've never heard of that fit the bill. Songs should be upbeat and preferably sweet but not saccharine.

Ladies: What do you wish your boyfriend would get you for Valentine's Day?

My girlfriend and I have been dating for almost six months now, but I know we have a special connection. I know she is very emotionally involved in our relationship as am I. We are planning on moving in together during the summer (mostly to save money). We are both 23 and live in Boston. She is Chinese, concerned with the environment, and about to go to grad school. I have been working on my start-up company. Neither of us have much money. That does not mean I can't do something special for her. The day before Valentine's is our 6-month anniversary which my girlfriend is planning and has already got some tickets to the opera for us to see. We agreed that she would plan our anniversary and I would plan Valentine's. What are some special things I could do or give her to show her I love her?

Why do so many people pronounce Valentine's Day as ValenTIMES Day?

Please help me understand why so many people pronounce Valentine's Day as ValenTIMES Day? I'm noticing this more and more and it's driving me crazy. Are these the same people who say 'libary' and 'supposibly', because those two I can almost tolerate, but Valentines Day with an M?!?! Please explain! Thanks and I hope I haven't offended anyone with my first post on here. :)

My spouse got flowers from someone else on Valentine's Day.

Let's suppose it's Valentine's Day, and your partner - to whom you are married and with whom you live - receives a beautiful big bunch of flowers.... from someone else. Do you care? Would it cause difficulties with your partner or might you even be flattered that other people are attracted to them? Would you wonder who it's from? If you suspected who it was from, how might you react towards them?
