It’s time for Valentine’s Day! Now, we all know that Valentine’s Day is not just about flowers and chocolate and stuffed animals. It’s about celebrating those you love most in your life. So, grab your sweetie, cuddle up by the fireplace, turn down the lights, and turn up the mood music. Here are a few song suggestions to help you sweep your Valentine off his or her feet!

Classic Rock: “You Shook Me All Night Long” by AC/DC

Lyrics to sing to your Honey Buns: Working double time on the seduction line/ She was one of a kind, she’s just mine all mine

Alternative Rock: “Hold My Hand” by New Found Glory

Lyrics to sing to your Honey Buns: The way your words keep me in a line/ I know what I’m here for/ Waking up to the green of your eyes/ It’s something I’ll get used to

Country: “Enchanted” by Taylor Swift

Lyrics to sing to your Honey Buns: Now I’m pacing back and forth, wishing you were at my door/ I’d open up and you would say, “Hey/
It was enchanting to meet you.”

“Don’t You Wanna Stay” by Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson

Hip Hop: “Beautiful” by Akon, Colby O’Donis, and Kardinal Offishall

Pop: “We’ll Be A Dream” by We The Kings and Demi Lovato

Lyrics to sing to your Honey Buns: Do you remember the nights we made our way dreaming/ Hoping of being someone big/ We were so young then/ We were too crazy in love

Classical: “Gymnopédies No. 1” by Erik Satie

Indie: “All I Got” by Newton Faulkner

Lyrics to sing to your Honey Buns: And I hope that you find it/ If freedom is all that you want/ I can see a silver lining/ I’ll be here time after time/ Time after time after all

R&B: “My Girl” by The Temptations

Lyrics to sing to your Honey Buns: I’ve got so much honey/ The bees envy me

I’ve got a sweeter song/ Than the birds in the trees
