Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and you want to set the mood. Whether you’re a hopeless romantic or straight to the point, UpVenue has scoured the music world for a Valentine's day music list you can really sink your teeth into. Who says that naughty and nice are reserved only for Christmas?
10Let's Get It On by Marvin Gaye
This song is a classic. Smooth soul combined with a straightforward message. It’s all about the lovin’. You can’t go wrong with this one.
There's nothin' wrong
With me lovin' you
Baby, no, no
And givin' yourself to me can never be wrong
950 Candles by Boyz II Men
This one isn’t one of the most well known by the R&B male vocal group but it should be. Put this baby on and let the music do the rest.
The outside world is of no concern
Just let our bodies and the candles in the room burn
With feverish passion uncontained
Close second: I’ll Make Love To You
8The Longer We Make Love by Barry White
It’s Barry White… need we say more?
And I'm in the mood to give sweet love to you
Girl, that's always on my mind
And all the things you want me to do
Turn out the light, I'll make it right
7Come On Get Higher by Matt Nathanson
At one of his performances he voiced his wish that his audience use this song to get in the mood. Will do, Matt! Although it is a relatively new song, its lyrics and delicious fusion of folk and rock make this one a keeper.
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
6Crash Into Me by Dave Matthews Band
Who says rock can’t be romantic? Dave Matthews himself described the songs as being about “the worship of women,” from a voyeuristic perspective, however. But you can mean it in the romantic sense. Don't be creepy. Crash Into Me wraps up UpVenue’s Nice List.
Touch your lips just so I know
In your eyes, love, it glows so
I'm bare boned and crazy for you
When you come crash
into me, baby
