EED A SURE-FIRE WAY TO GET YOUR HONEY IN THE MOOD? You can't go wrong with our picks for most-likely-to-get-lucky date movies and steamiest make-out CDs. Just pop one of these in the VCR or CD player and let the fireworks begin.

Say Anything
20th Century Fox
There are only three things that need to be said about this flick. John Cusack, sunrise serenade and "In Your Eyes." We've spent the last 10 years waiting for that tall, dark and handsome man in a long brown overcoat to arrive on our doorsteps and serenade us with his boom box.

Franco Zeferelli's Romeo and Juliet
Try as they might, Leo and Claire have nothing on this 1968 masterpiece starring Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey. What better than a story of star-crossed lovers fighting all odds to be together to get you in the mood for amore. Bonus points for being able to recite the lines to your darling ... "But soft, what light on yonder window breaks ..."

Can't Buy Me Love
You can't help but root for the high school loser who goes "from totally geek to totally chic" after paying a cheerleading hottie $1,000 to be his girlfriend. This romantic comedy brought the "African anteater ritual" to the dancefloor and its just as endearing now as it was in the '80s.

Gone with the Wind
New Line Cinema
Here's a true classic for romantics and movie buffs alike. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll swoon as a dashing Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) sweeps Scarlett (Vivien Leigh) up the stairs and into the bedroom. To put it bluntly, you'll give a damn.

Some Kind of Wonderful
This flick confirms the existence of soul mates. If tomboy Watts (Mary Stuart Masterson) can snag hottie Eric Stoltz straight out of the claws of the snobby beauty queen (Lea Thompson), there's hope for all of us, right?

Mazzy Star
So Tonight That I Might See

Capitol Records
Dreamy ballads and melodic guitar on "Fade Into You," and "Six-String Serenade" slow down the pace and set the mood for some serious make-out sessions.

Dave Matthews Band

Dave's sweet, sexy voice is sure to make lovers – or even just really good friends – laydown and start tangling tongues and lips like crazy. And for a sure-fire secret to some lovin', just put number three on repeat and you can "Crash" into that someone special all night long.

Sarah McLachlan

Every single song on this disc is perfect for candlelight and slow dancing with your one and only. Whether it's to "Angel," "I Love You," or "Building a Mystery," it's a pretty sure bet the object of your affections will give a "Sweet Surrender."

Marvin Gaye
Marvin Gaye's Greatest Hits

It's the subtle innuendos that men and women drop on dates that ultimately lead to a farewell handshake, a good-night kiss, or ... well you know the rest. So here's a hint: if your date busts out this Motown classic, it's safe to say you're gonna get it on. The only thing missing is "Sexual Healing" – you provide that yourself.

Urban Hang Suite

Sony Music
With his silky-smooth voice and hypnotic eyes, Maxwell is a walking aphrodisiac. So guys, pop this '96 soul masterpiece in the CD-player and let the master do the work for you. Even if you've got no game, you know this playa' does.
