[Cue record scratch.] Wait. You remembered the flowers but not the love songs?

Tweetspeak is here for you. We have the best love poems (print one off and tuck it in your pocket–it might come in handy), we have a Funny Valentine’s Playlist if you need to break the ice, and we have the sweetest list of romantic songs. All you have to do is Play.

You can thank us later.
