(The Nugget has a weekly feature where a writer will choose a musical theme and list some songs that fit that theme, I did this week’s issue).

    While the playlist you are about to skim through would be more suitable for a February/Valentine’s Day mix-tape, if you’re anything like me, then anytime is a good time for a cute little love song. From subtle to super sappy, these songs are perfect for the new couple, the old couple, or if you’re in that tricky stage where you’re not quite a couple, but you’re definitely on the right path. There is also a high chance these songs will anger or annoy or even induce eye-rolling and possible gagging amongst most. Whatever the case may be for you, whenever any of these songs come on the radio or shuffle randomly onto my iTunes, it’s nearly impossible to wipe the goofy smile off my face. Enjoy!
