It’s Valentine’s Day and you’re in the mood for love. But what album should you put on during your romantic meal?
With so many choices out there, we’ve narrowed it down to ten albums that will definitely help start the night right.
Brian McKnight’s 1999 album featured the lovey dovey title tracks, which counts down all the reasons he loves his special lady.
No romantic night would be complete without a little Marvin Gaye. From the title track to the closing song “Just To Keep You Satisfied,” there’s no way you won’t have a good night. Just ask Brian McKnight.
Norah Jones’ sweet rasp is so soothing you can kick back with a glass of wine and just relax with your special someone.
Why waste time making your own Billy Joel love mix when he’s already done it for you? His latest release features 18 of his most acclaimed romantic songs including “She’s Always A Woman” and “Just The Way You Are.”
“My Funny Valentine” has been done a million times, but in Babs’ capable hands she makes it seem like it’s a Streisand original.
Vandross looks especially smooth on the cover and his songs like “’Til My Baby Comes Home” and “If Only For One Night” certainly follow suit.
Al Green has too many great love songs and you’d never have enough time to go through his whole catalog, so keep it simple and just let this album, which features “Let’s Stay Together” and “Let’s Get Married,” play.
Put on “Smooth Operator” and just see what happens. Sade’s sexy voice never disappoints.
Destiny’s Child just rocked the Super Bowl, now let them rock your Valentine’s Day with their compilation of their 14 best love songs, including their newest single “Nuclear.”
This 2001 collection features all Bolton’s best including “Now That I Found You” and “Stand Up For Love.” Make sure you’re night goes even better by checking out Bolton’s tips for the perfect Valentine’s Day.
