We've got him covered. Yes, even him.
The time comes in every relationship when you must do something really important and scary.
You must make your beloved a mixtape.
Sure, they aren't on tapes anymore.
Heck, they aren't even on CDs.
But the fact remains, when you meet a man you like, you feel compelled to compile love songs for him.
You can't help it. iTunes calls to you and you must obey.
But how to you find love songs for him that express how you feel without hurting his precious musical sensibilities?
Don't worry, I've got you covered.
Here's at least one amazing love song for him, no matter what kind of guy your "him" may be.
If I'm honest, each and every song deserves a place on any list of love songs for him you may be putting together.
1. The earnest nerd
"Teenage Dirtbag" by Wheatus
Does it get any sweeter than this nerd love anthem about a geeky guy and the hot girl who bond over a shared love of Iron Maiden?
I think not.
2. The secret rocker
"Make It Wit Chu" by Queens of the Stone Age
Even the most dire hard rock god can't help but be touched by this sex ballad.
Love is wanting to "make it wit chu, anytime anywhere."
3. The former emo
"Sugar We're Goin' Down" by Fall Out Boy
Nothing says love like being someone's number one with a bullet.
We'll smile in spite of himself, like any good emo in love.
4. The glam rock devotee
"Modern Love" by David Bowie
David Bowie's catchy song about love in the modern age still has all the slinky appeal of his glam days.
Your glam guy won't be able to stop tapping his toes and twitching his hips.
5. The music obsessive
"As We Go Up We Go Down" by Guided By Voices
True music obsessives love paying homage at the altar of GBV.
This love song is as begrudging as it touching.
6. The musically clueless
"Personality" by Lloyd Price
He might not know a lot about music, but he likes bobbing his head and biting his lip as much as the next guy.
That's part of the personality you love, after all!
7. The dance junkie
"Closer" by Ne-Yo
R&B singer Ne-Yo wrote this track after spending time in the discos of Berlin.
It shows! Get up and move while celebrating your love.
8. The cowboy
"In Spite of Ourselves" by John Prine
This country duet by legend John Prine is as funny as it sweet.
You love your cowboy, moles warts and all.
9. The classical snob
"Can't Help Falling In Love" by Fleet Foxes
The Foxes arranged this Elvis hit in a choral style, so it will appeal to his highbrow taste.
Plus, the message is as old as time.
10. The wannabe MC
"Whatever You Like" by T.I.
This ear-worm of a track by T.I. promises sex, bottles, security and more.
The lyrics are fresh and the beats dope as hell.
11. The goth guy
"Friday I'm In Love" by The Cure
I do not know a goth guy who DOESN'T love The Cure.
And since you love him, this is the perfect fit.
12. The stoner dude
"Being Around" by The Lemonheads
The song asks the important question all stoner dudes need to know:
Are you cool with him just being around?
