Will you be our Valentine? (Jaime’s Mix)

12 Feb
In honor of Valentine’s Day, we Daybowbow staffers decided to make mixes of our favorite love songs. We ask you to forget your cynicism, open your hardened hearts and, well, be our valentine. Also, feel free to steal any of our lists, or some combination thereof, and make a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone.

As opposed to Ms. Bagherpour, I’m pretty anti-Valentines day as I tend to find the whole thing pretty droll due to the obligations involved. No matter if you’re for or against the holiday there’s an obligation tied up in it–either you’re making it a point to spend the day like any other day, or you’re forking out wads of cash for no reason whatsoever.

Prince- Let’s Pretend we’re married

Prince is undoubtedly the godfather of sex music, and with a chorus like “Excuse me but I need a mouth like yours/2 help me forget the girl that just walked out my door/Let’s pretend we’re married and do it all night/I won’t stop until the mornin’ light” he proves that you don’t need to tell someone you “want to fuck them like an animal” to be seductive. Just make sure to follow it up with something like “I sincerely wanna fuck the taste outta your mouth”. Seriously, any time someone tries to say they like to do it to that insipid NIN song, it’s hard not to laugh. Continue reading
