An Eclectic 'I Do' Playlist

Posted: 02/13/2012 2:07 pm

Thinking of popping the question on the year's most romantic day? Want some sonic support?

Creating a CD of love songs can be a daunting task, especially if your partner's iPod screams "cool." Maybe she'll think it's corny. Maybe he'll find the tracks lame. It can be intimidating.

My main goal with this list is to steer you away from chestnuts like "Unchained Melody" and "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face." But I'm also avoiding things I deeply dig like "Such Great Heights" by The Postal Service and "The Book Of Love" by Magnetic Fields, as they've become indie clichés, due to overuse in film and TV.

With that in mind, let these ten left-of-center tracks be a starting point for your "I Do" playlist. (And a bottle of Veuve Cliquot couldn't hurt.)
