For Valentine's Day, we asked three of our favorite local singer-songwriters—Sarah Shook, Phonte Coleman, and Mac McCaughan—to create themed mixtapes. Each tackled a distinct theme related to the most Hallmarked of all holidays.

Shook, a hard-living country badass, took on loneliness. Coleman, the Little Brother alumnus who now croons at the helm of The Foreign Exchange, accepted lust. And McCaughan, the perpetually energized co-founder of Superchunk and Merge Records, took on the topic of young, exuberant love. Listen to 'em as your mood sees fit.

Below, Phonte Coleman's picks of lust: 

Teyana Taylor, "Request"

King Floyd, "Baby Let Me Kiss You"

Silk, "Freak Me"

The Transitions, "Straight Fucking"

Carl Thomas, "Hey Now"

Chaka Khan, "Night Moods"

David Banner, "Play"

J*Davey, "Get Together"

Willie Max, "Can't Get Enough"

Clarence Carter, "Strokin'"
