Who said Valentine’s Day had to be bad? My Valentine’s Day playlist that will lure love into your life.
Let’s be honest: how many of us think Valentine’s Day is terrible? But there’s no reason to make the holiday any worse by playing those same dreadful songs over and over again. I went through my archive of music to find you some new and meaningful songs that you can add to your own Valentine’s Day playlist. For me at least, I love listening to songs that really hit you where it hurts and have really raw emotions. This list consists of upbeat as well as some slow songs that really scream ‘the day of love’ to any type of listener. I also wanted to include my favorite lyrics from each song that really screamed to me as I listened to each song.
Feel free to jump around throughout the list and mix it up!
