Nothing Says Love Like a Burned CD

Ah, it’s February and the groundhog has already seen it’s shadow so we turn to the other important holiday: Valentine’s Day.

Wait a minute, did I say that it is important? Who am I kidding? Valentine’s Day has to be one of the most overrated holidays created. Girls expect beautiful flowers and yummy candy only to be disappointed by their forgetful boyfriends.

I see Valentine’s Day as a day that means florists have the chance to raise flower prices to ridiculous rates. Valentine’s Day is a day for everyone to waste their money on Hallmark cards and expensive candy. It’s also a day for the single to feel sorry for themselves but that’s a whole different article.

Well, for everyone out there that has spent their refund checks already and no longer has room for flowers as part of their budget I have devised an inexpensive present that may mean more in the long run. Make a romantic CD!

Here’s a few song suggestions:

1. Sinead O’Connor – Nothing Compares to You

2. Christopher Cross – Swept Away

3. Jefferson Starship – Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now

4. Josh Groban – To Where You Are

5. Peter Gabriel – In Your Eyes

6. The Pretenders – I’ll Stand By You

7. Alison Krauss – When You Say Nothing at All

8. John Stamos and the Beach Boys – Forever

9. Secret Garden – You Raise Me Up

10. Tracy Chapman – Save a Place for Me

11. Sally Dworsky – Turning Circles

12. Third Day – When the Rain Comes

13. John Hiatt- Have a Little Faith in Me

14. Lifehouse – When I Look Into Your Eyes

15. Bad English – When I See You Smile

16. Elvis Presley – Can’t Help Falling in Love (With You)

17. Skid Row – I Remember You

18. Scarlet – Independent Love Song

19. Jason Mraz – You and I Both

20. Powerman 5000 – Watch the Sky for Me

22. Phil Collins – A Groovy Kind of Love

23. Percy Sledge – When a Man Loves a Woman

Guys, your girlfriends will be swooning because they think you are so romantic and you will be happy because really, what does a blank CD cost? Girls, it is long lasting gift and hey, it means he was on the computer for reasons other than looking at porn! It’s a win-win situation. Happy Valentine’s Day!
