Maybe it’s just me, but for some reason I think Valentine’s Day is a holiday created by the retailers to make even more money during the year that isn’t being spent during the major holidays. If that’s your thing, then enjoy it. In my opinion, you don’t need a specific day to express your love for someone. That should be going all through the year. So, back in the day when I was naïve enough to get caught up in the holiday hype, I would try to things that I thought were pretty original instead of predictable stuff. I realize that something genuine coming from the heart goes a lot further than a box of candy. With that being said I have decided to share one of my personal Valentine’s Day gift ideas for you fellas out there that desire an original approach. So, check it out.

I call this the gift of music. This gift works better with a person you have been with a little bit of time. If you’ve just met them with in the last couple of months, this gift may not be the one for you. Since, I enjoy music and I have a lot of it, I came up with the idea of telling my girl a story with love songs. It took me a while to find the right songs to fit into this compilation, but in the end it all came together. I started the story with songs that described the feelings I had when we first met. Then the songs transitioned into describing how I enjoyed the time we spent together and so on. You know the rest. Just let the music tell them how you feelie-feel, whatever that may be. Women eat that kind of stuff up, because it’s personal and it shows effort. She’ll throw those dead roses in the trash after a few days, but she’ll hold on to that personalized compilation forever. I used a 90 minute cassette tape to put my compilation together, so you know it had to be dope for it to still be in her possession. That’s just an inexpensive yet effective Valentine’s Day gift you can share, but I would suggest you do some else to go along with it though. Don’t be a cheap sucka! Take her to dinner and a movie or something as well.

Alright, enough of the sentimentals, lets get into some music. It is slow jam soul time folks. These joints are on some of that “Quiet Storm” in the rain type mixxes, which are perfect when in chill mode. A couple of these joints are re-ups, but I actually think one of them was never shared, so get them while you can.

SoundNexx loves the ladies, so enjoy!

Hey, your spot is hot. I love your page and your interest in music. It's good to find someone who knows and appreciates GOOD music and not that 'back dat az up' 'my ice is freezin' 'bag up the coke' 'my wheels is spinnin' kind of music. I will definitely be coming back through to checkout more artists with soul. Especially since they aren't marketed as much as the rappers and bullsh#tt%rs.

Much Love
