Valentine’s Day is nearly here, and whether you are spending it with the love of your life or are blissfully single, everyone can agree that love, both had and lost, can inspire some pretty amazing songs. So, in honor of February 14, I teamed up with Cupid to create a “mix-tape” of songs for the season.

Mix tapes might be a thing of the past, but I think that the idea remains, whether it be on a burned CD, or a customized playlist. They’ve even gotten a some love from Guardians of the Galaxy's Peter Quill! And much as there are two sides to Valentine’s Day, single and taken, there are two sides to a proper mix tape. I hope you enjoy these, and should you need a last-minute gift idea, impress the guy or gal in your life with a nostalgic gift by crafting an actual mix tape or CD! Side B is for those loving the single life.
