Love it or hate it, Valentine's Day is right around the corner. What do you do when the boxes of chocolate are all sold out, the price of roses is astronomical and all the good restaurants are booked? You make a mixtape, of course. For this long weekend's Rock List, we're calling upon the Rolling Stone readers to help craft the perfect V-Day mix. Tell us the ONE essential song you'd include, and on Tuesday we'll dig through the comments to construct the surefire Valentine's Day mix. For a further education on the art, check out Rob Sheffield's Love is a Mixtape, and to get the ball rolling, check out some of our favorites below while clicking through our Couples on the Cover of Rolling Stone gallery:
• The Beach Boys - "God Only Knows"
• Red House Painters - "All Mixed Up"
• U2 - "With or Without You"
• Guns n' Roses - "Patience"
