Readers’ Rock List: Valentine’s Day Mixtape

February 16th, 2010 by Rolling Stone Leave a reply »

Last week with Valentine’s Day looming, we asked our readers what song they’d contribute to the perfect Valentine’s mixtape. After tallying the votes, the Beatles’ Abbey Road classic “Something” was the runaway victor and the must for any V-Day mixtape, beating lovelorn songs by Derek and the Dominoes, Buddy Holly and Marvin Gaye. Check out our gallery of couples on the cover of RS while perusing the readers’ complete 15-song Valentine’s Day mixtape, which would make a pretty good present this time next year:

1. The Beatles – “Something”
2. Derek and the Dominos – “Layla”
3. The Cure – “Love Song”
4. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – “Maps”
5. The Beatles – “In My Life”
6. Bee Gees – “To Love Someone”
7. Buddy Holly – “True Love Ways”
8. Four Tops – “Reach Out I’ll Be There”
9. Journey – “Open Arms”
10. Led Zeppelin – “Thank You”
11. Marvin Gaye – “Let’s Get it On”
12. The Bee Gees – “How Deep Is Your Love”
13. U2 – “All I Want Is You”
14. Chris Isaak – “Wicked Game”
15. The Beach Boys – “God Only Knows”
