Every year when Valentine’s Day rolls around, there’s always a mix of emotions in the air. Some experience lust, while others feel angst. Despite your relationship status, I encourage everyone to get in the true spirit of V-day and celebrate this day of love!
Below are two different playlists. One consists of mushy, heart-warming melodies that should make you feel like you just walked out of a classic 80’s romance. If you’re currently in love, you know that it’s a really rare, indescribable feeling. And if you’re anything like me, you probably like to associate your feelings with music because it allows you to channel certain emotions. Having that one song that reminds you of your special someone allows you to hold onto that feeling and re-experience it every time you press play. Music can play a huge part in your mindset about love, and it helps you express your feelings when your words just don’t do it justice. The songs on this playlist are some of my personal favorites, and hopefully they give you that warm, fuzzy, and nostalgic feeling that comes with being in love.
The second playlist has a little twist to it. This one was specifically made for those who will be going solo this V-day. Whether you’re experiencing heartbreak, trying to find “that one person,” or just “doing you” on your own, this playlist has you covered. I have fallen both in and out of love before and I’ve always found myself coming back to music for clarity on virtually any situation. With being single comes a lot of highs and lows, and luckily there’s a ton of songs out there for that! This playlist has a little bit of everything and I hope that you find yourself connecting to some of my top jams for going solo. There’s a common misconception that Valentine’s Day only applies to couples, but that’s really not the case here! Even if you don’t have a Valentine this year, you should still treat yourself to some quality time with yourself/your friends because let’s be honest, you deserve it.
I wish everyone a wonderful February 14th this year and hope that this holiday reminds you to love yourself & everyone around you!
If you’re in love…
If you’re single…
