What's the ultimate Valentines song?

Because we had so much fun last year putting together the ultimate Christmas, we’d like your help in putting together the ultimate Valentine’s Day for you and that special someone. First up – music!


Shakespeare once said ‘if music be the food of love, play on’. We’re not quite sure about that – a good Nandos fills us up more than a listening to a few songs – but it’s hard to overestimate how important picking the right tune can be to a budding romance.

We’re kicking off our search for all the things to do on a perfect Valentine’s Day and we’re starting with the perfect song. Let us know in the comments what works for you – anything from crooners to rockers to metal or hip hoppers. Whether it’s been successful for you in the past or it’s the one song you wish your other half would play for you, we’d like to know.

Although no Lady In Red, please…

Update: Some interesting suggestions from Facebook and Twitter, including Elton John, Bruno Mars, Michael Bolton (the old ones are the best), Take That, James Blunt (eek), Paul Weller, Josh Groban, Bon Jovi, Seal and even Aerosmith. Pick a CD and good luck…
