Against The Current

The Valentine’s Day Mixtape: Against The Current

Alright Lovers. Being the warm-hearted romantics that we are, we asked our favourite bands to curate five track mix-tapes to celebrate Valentine’s Day(AND THEN WE WROTE SOME NONSENSE TO GO WITH THEM.) some are heart-felt, some are brilliant and some are awful but all are about love. and isn’t that the true spirit of this great holiday? Maybe.

Frank Sinatra – The Way You Look Tonight

Valentine’s Day is about being original, it’s about being charming. If there’s a singer more charming than Frank Sinatra, we don’t want to know.
Most Romantic Moment: “Don’t you ever change.”
Romantic Rating: ★★★★★

Konstantine – Something Corporate

Nothing says grand romantic gesture like a nine minute epic but there we go. Probably avoid watching Keanu Reeves’ Constantine though.
Most Romantic Moment: Getting through the whole track.
Romantic Rating: ★★★

Dean Martin – That’s Amore

“The pizza song.”
Most Romantic Moment: Sharing Italian food is classic romance. Just look at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Lady and The Tramp.
Romantic Rating: ★★★★

Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons – Who Loves You

Love isn’t just for christmas. Or Valentine’s Day. It’s for life, which means it needs walking and feeding. Love is a lot like a dog.
Most Romantic Moment: That solo.
Romantic Rating: ★★★★

Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud

Isn’t Ed nice? We bet he’s just lovely.
Most Romantic Moment: Strictly Come Nandos.
Romantic Rating: ★★★★★
