I could say I put this song on here because it’s a personal favorite, but it turns out it is the No. 1 most-used wedding song. Wedding or not, there’s nothing like some classic Etta James melodies for a memorable Valentine’s.

The first time I heard Coming Home, I was convinced it was a decades-old song I somehow happened to never had heard. If you haven’t given the full album a listen, grabbing the vinyl version is a must.

Though not a vinyl manufacturer by trade, the noted card maker has taken its Valentine’s Day offerings to the next level. This card comes with a classic Hallmark-style greeting and opens up to reveal a 45 rpm vinyl record. You can choose to have two songs from Aretha Franklin, Bruno Mars, or INXS.

Sade — ‘Diamond Life’ ($30)

Maybe one of your parents talked about their smooth operating days or maybe you first heard of this silky voiced singer via Drake’s Instagram. However you came to discover Sade, there’s no denying Diamond Life is a great choice for the most commercially backed romantic day of the year.

Norah Jones — ‘Come Away With Me’ ($16+)

For a more mellow soundtrack, you can’t go wrong with Norah Jones’ Grammy-winning album Come Away With Me. It’s a bit more moody, but still pulls at the heartstrings.

Al Green — ‘Greatest Hits’ ($15)

There was no way Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together was going to be left off this list. If you hit up Google for the “best” romantic songs or albums, you will see this photo of Al Green all over the place.

Maxwell — ‘Urban Hang Suite’ ($15)

You might know Maxwell from his hits Pretty Wings or This Woman’s Work. His debut album, Urban Hang Suite, will really resonate with valentines who have gone through the more bittersweet and vulnerable ups and downs of a relationship.

Marvin Gaye — ‘Let’s Get It On’ ($23)

If I must explain why this is an obvious choice for a lovey-dovey IRL soundtrack, you’re in the wrong place.

Our 5 favorite tablet deals in Best Buy’s ‘3-Day Sale’
Apple iPad 9th Gen. 2021 on porch with toys.

If you weren't aware, the Best Buy 3-Day Sale is going on now. While the name is a considerably less flashy than Amazon's Prime Day, it does make immediate sense. There's a sale going on at Best Buy, and it lasts... for three days, ending Sunday. During this sale, you can find a number of classic Best Buy items — with everything from the best laptops to the best tablets — marked down in price. Here, we investigate the tablets that make up the 3-Day Sale and highlight the five we like the most, based on discount and quality of the product, while also showing a wide variety of tablets and price ranges.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+ — $190, was $220

While the discount isn't too steep, there also isn't a lot of room to bring the Galaxy Tab A9+'s price down anyhow. This low-priced tablet is perfect for watching videos and browsing the net. It can also be cozy to curl up next to someone else and watching programming together on its surprisingly large 11-inch, 1920 x 1200p screen. As the Galaxy Tab A9+ only uses 4GB of RAM and has a mere 64GB of storage, you might think it wouldn't be too great at gaming, but with a 90Hz refresh rate, it can definitely take on some action-packed fun. Just install a few apps at a time and be a completionist about it.

Thinking about heading to Best Buy some time soon? If your answer is "No" then you should seriously reconsider, or at least check out the deals online. The Best Buy 3-Day sale is here, goes through Sunday, and its been making us take a huge interest in Best Buy's laptop deals. As it so turns out, right now is just a great time to get one. And, as hard as it has been to do so, we've narrowed the 3-Day Sale's laptops down to just five — split across a wide variety of prices and primary functions — that we think you should strongly consider.
HP 14-inch Chromebook — $159, was $299

If you're looking for budget laptops, Chromebooks are usually a great place to start. They're just cheaper than other laptops on many fronts, though there is some pared-down functionality when you compare them to laptops at large. This 14-inch laptop with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC memory has great cloud storage and is perfect for getting you through documents, web browsing, and enjoying videos on YouTube. If you have some difficulty thinking about what else you can do on a laptop but those things, and you're not alone, this laptop was pretty much made for you. Due to the excellent price point and low chances for distraction, this is an excellent laptop for college students looking to get something extra to throw in their backpack.
