Do you hear that? It's the sound of 1,000 boyfriends and girlfriends scrambling to put together the perfect Valentine's Day experience. Even so, all the chocolate, candles, and the rest of the clichés won't make any difference unless you set right mood.
With that in mind, we've selected more than twenty tracks that are more romantic than a dinner on the Seine — and more heartfelt than the ending of Love Actually (okay, maybe not, but it comes awfully close). Marvin Gaye once said, "Music, not sex, got me aroused." We can't help but think the two complement each other nicely.
