18 Songs Guaranteed to Set the Mood this Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is all about the cheesy, over the top, grand gesture type of romance. It’s just not complete without the heart-shaped chocolates, wine, fancy dinners, candles, and of course sex.

But the most important part of it all: music. You simply can’t slow dance or set the mood without it.

So when the time comes grab a bottle of wine, lay out some rose petals, and hit play with these songs. It’s sure to get you to the dessert stage, if you know what I mean!
