Valentine’s Day happens only once a year. But what if you want to feel the lurve all 365 days of the year? Listen to love songs every day, that’s our advice. There are so many CD compilations out there proclaiming that if there is only one CD you should on, that’s the one. But what smart marketing this is, releasing a romantic movie (simply entitled Valentine’s Day) and a soundtrack album to go along with it. Couples, get ready to watch the movie, and buy the CD after walking out of the cinema.

In this movie which tells the intertwining stories of a group people living in Los Angeles (incidentally, they are extremely gorgeous people played by Julia Roberts, Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, and Patrick Dempsey amongst others), the soundtrack is one jolly affair with different styles catering to different tastes. The collection of 18 songs with the inclusion of two new songs by American country-pop singer-songwriter, record producer and actress (we continue to wonder why Kanye West had to traumatise the poor girl publicly at the MTV Video Music Awards) Taylor Swift and American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actress, and poet (aren’t artistes these days talented?) Jewel.

Swift’s new song “Today Was A Fairytale” kicks off the romance filled album with the right amount of fluff and love. It is followed by the reggae tune “Say Hey (I Love You)” performed by Michael Franti & Spearhead, the classical feel good “I’m in the Mood for Love” belted melodically by Jools Holland and featuring Jamiroquai. The lightweight “Everyday” by Sausalito Foxtrot and Jewel’s new single “Stay Here Forever” contrasts each other nicely, showcasing different styles of girl power.

Elsewhere in the 59 minute album, you can find familiar tunes like Amy Winehouse’s “Cupid”, Maroon 5’s “The Way You Look Tonight” and Joss Stone’s “4 and 20”. The evergreen “Te Quiero Dijiste” by Nat King Cole and the psychedelic “Somebody to Love” by Leighton Meester featuring Robin Thicke are thoughtful additions to the compilation. The pleasant surprise comes in the form of the ethnic “Signed Sealed Delivered I’m Yours” by Anju Ramapriyam, which closes the lovely album with a bang, and hopefully, leaving smiles on you and your loved one’s faces.
