Top 10 Valentine's Day Songs to Get in the Mood

UpVenue gives you the songs guaranteed to set the mood for Valentine's Day

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?




Let'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.

Best lyric:
There's nothin' wrong
With me lovin' you
Baby, no, no
And givin' yourself to me can never be wrong


50 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.

Best lyric:
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


The Longer We Make Love by Barry White

It’s Barry White… need we say more?

Best lyric:
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


Come 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.

Best lyric:
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


Crash 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.

Best lyric:
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


Closer by Nine Inch Nails

The Naughty

We’re not all nice, are we? These suggestions cater to those who are, shall we say, more to the point?

Could there be a naughty list without this song? Though this song has been censored and wrapt with controversy from the beginning, it still manages to be one of Nine Inch Nails' most well-known songs.

Best lyric:
I wanna **** you like an animal
I wanna feel you from the inside
I wanna **** you like an animal
My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to God


I Touch Myself by The Divinyls

This Australian rock band had the right idea. This song, also covered by Blondie, doesn’t hide behind its words. It was relevant in the past and today alike.

Best lyric:
I want you
I don't want anybody else
And when I think about you
I touch myself


Bad Touch by Bloodhound Gang

If you don’t know this song, punish yourself immediately then listen to it. You won’t regret it.

Best lyric:
You and me baby ain't nothin' but mammals
So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel


I Wanna **** You by Akon ft. Snoop Dog

This song boasts two versions, the radio edit that includes the word “love,” in the title and lyrics and the other version, on the album where “love” is replaced by “f**k.” Give it a listen. It won’t be long before you realize why it made the Naughty List.

Best lyric:
I see you winding and grinding up on that pole,
I know you see me lookin' at you and you already know
I wanna **** you, you already know


F**k Her Gently by Tenacious D

What would a Naughty List be without Jack Black? And this is, by far, the naughtiest of the naughty.

Best lyric:

I'm gonna **** you softly
I'm gonna screw you gently
I'm gonna hump you sweetly
I'm gonna ball you discreetly
