The Valentine’s Day Mixtape: Creeper

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.

Alkaline Trio – Clavicle

Three might be a crowd but there’s always room for an Alkaline Trio and nothing screams romance like an acoustic guitar. Strip down the song but dial up the emotion.
Most Romantic Moment: Impressing your date with the fact that the clavicle is the only long bone in the body that lies horizontally. Don’t make it dirty.
Romantic Rating: ★★★★

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds – Are You The One That I’ve Been Waiting For

Asking questions is important and as Nick Cave and Co get intimate, the romance gets powerfully moving.
Most Romantic Moment: “Stars have their moment and then they die.” Woah.
Romantic Rating: ★★★★★

Randy Newman – Losing You

Taking it one step further than ‘You’ve Got A Friend In Me’, Randy Newman shows that hearts aren’t stories for toys.
Most Romantic Moment: Sitting in silence and just enjoying the moment.
Romantic Rating: ★★★★★

Jawbreaker – Want

PUNX have hearts too and this track deals in three simple words. No, not those ones.
Most Romantic Moment: Keeping it simple.
Romantic Rating: ★★★★

Tiger Army – Cupid’s Victim

It’s never nice to play the blame game unless it’s Valentine’s Day and you want to blame your happiness on an adorable cherub armed with a bow and arrow. That said, raising an army of tigers to show how much you care probably isn’t the best course of action.
Most Romantic Moment: Somewhere, there’s a candy heart that explains how you feel better than you ever could Get searching.
Romantic Rating: ★★
