I Should Have Been A Great Proficient

"There are few people I suppose, who have more true enjoyment of music than myself or a better natural taste. If I had ever learnt, I should have been a great proficient." (This line is courtesy of Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Genius that Jane.)

A really cool website once put together a really cool mix for Valentine's Day. A really cool friend gave me the really cool mix. It was a quirky bunch of love songs. I loved it. They called the mix iheart.

I made a Valentine's Day mix. In honor of the original iheart, it's quirky too. Some of the songs aren't even in English. Some of the songs don't have words. Most of the songs are old school because I am not very hip. But all of the songs are favorites. I named my mix iheart2.

Here are a list of my songs:

1. Love is in the Air by John Paul Young
2. Chasing Pavements by Adele
3. Let's Stay Together by Al Green
4. River Waltz from Painted Veil Soundtrack
5. The Girl From Ipanema by Astrud and Joao Gilberto
6. Do I Love You? by Aztec Camera
7. Need You Tonight by INXS
8. Con Te Partiro by Andrea Bocelli
9. The Luckiest by Ben Folds
10. Brown-Eyed Girl by Van Morrison
11. Fix You by Cold Play
12. Cupid by Jack Johnson
13. Try a Little Tenderness by Michael Buble
14. Mrs. Darcy from Pride & Prejudice Soundtrack
15. You Do Something To Me by Sinead O'Conner
16. Sweetest Thing by U2
17. My Man from Funny Girl Soundtrack
18. Best I've Every Had by Vertical Horizon
19. Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps by Cake
20. Secret Valentine by We the Kings
21. Claire De Lune by Debussy
