Mixed Tape Mondays: Songs That Make Us Want to be in Love

We talk a lot about sex over here, but we’re also big fans of love. More than love, we’re big fans of that giddy, butterfly feeling you get in your gut when you’re falling for someone. Even when we’re not in love, or in the mood for love, or interested at all in dealing with love, we still appreciate a good love song. So, for this week’s Mixed Tape Monday, we decided to make a playlist of songs that make us want to be in love.



(This songlist was made with help from our Twitter and Facebook fans. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to helps us create future Mixed Tape Monday playlists!)
