Love Is All Around Playlist

If you're feeling sentimental this holiday season, or you're looking for love, this playlist is for you. Especially if you suspect that the journey to finding true love will take many many cups of tea and might just end with someone saying "I do" in a British accent. Here's the link if you'd like to download it on iTunes.

This mix was inspired by the soundtracks to some much-loved British romantic comedies - some more darkly funny than others. It's got a great, mellow ambiance and will be a great companion to your Love Actually movie night. [And while I'm on the subject of Love Actually, I can't resist linking to this Bobby Finger article on The Hairpin; it's called "Hate Actually", and it's basically about how much he hates himself for how much he loves Love Actually. I admit it - that sentence was kind of fun to type.]

Here's the track list:

1. Bolero/Maurice Ravel: Boston Symphony Orchestra
2. Someone Like You/Dina Carroll
3. Since I Fell for You/Vince Guaraldi Trio
4. Tired of Being Alone/Al Green
5. Super Duper Love/Joss Stone
6. Love Is All Around/Wet Wet Wet
7. Trainspotting/Primal Scream
8. Definitely Unexpected/Hans Zimmer
9. The Moth/Aimee Mann
10. A Case of You/Joni Mitchell
11. I Shall Believe/Sheryl Crow
