MIMO - When Music is Your Fix

Valentine’s Day: Your Musical Guide to Scoring Some Loving

Valentine’s Day is a joyous occasion for all the lovers out there. Hands will be held ever so tightly and lovely gift exchanges between couples will become commonplace. Roses, chocolates, teddy bears and five star restaurant reservations play a huge part in guaranteeing you some good loving. But the lovely sounds of passionate R&B music can seal the deal even more.

There’s going to be a period where the hugs and kisses have died down. Once you’re ready to take your partner by the hand for a moment on the dance floor (or in the bedroom), give these songs some play. You can trust in these tunes because they transform a great evening into an excellent one. Mark your Valentine’s Day celebration with some R&B songs that have stood the test of time.

Spread the love.
