Romantic Date Ideas: Make a Romantic Playlist
Make up a romantic playlist for your honey with songs the conjure up memories from your own best romantic moments, and sneak it onto his iPod or MP3 player. Here are some great love songs -- from old school to new -- to help you get started on a best-of for your mate.
"At Last" Etta James Etta's voice screams, "Sexy!" And oh yeah, there's all that true-love-finally-come-true stuff.
"Unchained Melody" Righteous Brothers Admit it. You want to be serenaded by Tom Cruise in his summer whites. It's ok; we do, too.
"When a Man Loves a Woman" Percy Sledge Absolute devotion. You deserve it. You give it. Just a reminder.
"I Can't Help Falling in Love With You:" Elvis Presley Ah, Elvis, such a fine specimen of a man (back in the day). This swoony tune can make anyone weak in the knees.
"You Make Me Feel (Like a Natural Woman)" Aretha Franklin You feel like the goddess you truly are when your honey is around, so sing it loud.
"In Your Eyes" Peter Gabriel It's an 80's sort of serenade (think John Cusack with a jam box) that still gets us all lovey-dovey.
"All I Want is You" U2 Yes, you like diamonds and bands of gold, but your mate is all you really need.
"You and I" Ingrid Michaelson You want to do what bunnies do, we know. Life in a French villa doesn't sound so bad, either.
"Banana Pancakes" Jack Johnson Reminisce about those days BC (before children) when you could spoon the morning away and eat banana pancakes in bed.
"Folding Chair" Regina Spektor Love is simple really, hold my hand and sit with me. And see? Romance can include having a baby. Regina says so.
