How to Make a Lovely Valentine’s Day Playlist

By David Goe

Guys, it's Valentine's Day. Let's hypothetically say you forgot to get your special girl a gift (we all know that's not the case but play along). All the flowers shops are sold out, all the good restaurants are fully booked, so what are you going to do? Jump on iTunes and make her a killer playlist, that's what!

If you are not the kind of dude who willingly shares your feelings with your lady friend then a playlist is a perfect Valentine's gift. Why awkwardly mumble "I love you" when 'N Sync can do it so much better? A good playlist is basically a love letter to your honey. When you are putting together a playlist remember, there are basically two kinds of songs. There are songs about being in love and songs about breaking up. With 50% of all recorded music as an option here is how to narrow down your playlist. 

1) Don't go for the obvious. "My Girl" is a great song, and you may feel that about your significant other, but remember, ladies love a little mystery.
2) Stick to the theme. You need at least a couple songs that are blatantly about love or else your playlist will become just another mix. 
3) Keep it fun. Ladies love to laugh so don't load up your playlist with a bunch of sappy Morrissey tunes. Keep it fun and throw in songs that remind your girl that you can be spontaneous.  
4) Don't record your own messages over the songs. Seriously, don't. Even if there is a long instrumental don't zap the mood by recording some cheesy generic "I love you" statement over the music.  
5) Don't fear Phil. I don't care if you are a hardcore power metal couple. She's got two ears and a heart, right?  
6) Find a closer. At the end of the day, Valentine's Day is about getting a little action so it's time to call in Mariano Rivera. Throw on some PBR'n'B and make it hot! 
7) Give your playlist a killer name. "Luvfest '13 XOXO" is already taken so get that red Sharpie out and come up with something creative. This is first impression your playlist will make on your girl so at least draw a couple hearts on the CD-R.
