"If music be the food of love, play on." ~William Shakespeare

Back in the day, mixtapes were all the rage. Compilations were themed to accompany any event and told a story. My favorite compilations were of songs to accompany me on long car rides... a little traveling music please. Once I created a divorce tape for a friend that included artists such as Lesley Gore and Eminem. When the technology evolved to CDs, I moved away from mixtapes. But Valentine's Day is the perfect holiday to resurrect the tradition. 

Sharing music, the songs of your heart, is a romantic and meaningful way to communicate your feelings for another. Whether you sing a lullaby to your little one or select "'our song" on your first date, music is the food of love. If you were going to assemble a mixtape for your loved ones, what songs would you choose?

Here is my mixtape for February 2014.
