Let’s be honest here: Valentine’s Day is rarely on the top of everyone’s favorite holiday list. Maybe it’s time to re-think this whole holiday – why not just fall headfirst into the cheesy celebrations and treat yo’-self? Think bubble bath, records, candles…you get the picture.
Instead of focusing on the overcomplicated romantic gestures, think about a more grandeur scheme: the mood.
Few things can kill a mood faster than a sudden playlist shuffle mishap-whether it’s by yourself, with your friends or with a significant other. Avoid the awkward silences and fill your Valentine’s with the right ambiance by creating the perfect playlist.
Here are my favorite go-to classic Valentine’s Day songs to add to your playlist this year:
- All My Life- KC and JoJo
- (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman- Aretha Franklin
- You Are the Best Thing- Ray LaMontagne
- Turn Me On- Norah Jones
- Love On Top- Beyoncé
- Make You Feel My Love- Adele
- More Than Words- Extreme
- I’ve Been Loving You Too Long- Otis Redding
- Sea of Love- Cat Power
- Truly, Madly, Deeply- Savage Garden
Sometimes it’s just nice to have a day to take a step back and remember how much you are loved and remind those close to you how much you love them. So drop in that bubble bath bomb, grab a glass of wine and make this Valentine’s Day one for the books.
