Love is in the air. Especially when everything and anything tells you it’s that time of the year in which you should be showcasing how perfect and pristine the love between you two is. Truth is, we are no longer members of a society where cheesy AF everything is the trend, thank God. Truth is, we are no longer members of a society that demands us to abide by fixed love criteria, we are free to celebrate love in whichever manner pleases us.
That’s why the ultimate Valentine’s day playlist edited by D360 isn’t going to be an alternative version and more epically cliched collection of romantic songs.
This isn’t just a romantic playlist, it’s a Valentine’s day survival playlist for whoever wants to listen to music and has or hasn’t got a date for the night.
Me Myself and I playlist
Some of you might say that Creep is one of the best love songs ever, but you know it, we know it too, this is what to listen too when all you want is some self-pity, lying down in your bed and turning some lights down.
Behind Blue Eyes, The Who
Written by Pete Townshend, Behind Blue Eyes is one of the most known songs by British band The Who. Released in 1971, it is the perfect ode for a Me, Myself and I Valentine’s Day Playlist.
Heart Shaped Box, Nirvana
Kurt Cobain was never a man who did much romance, yet his love ode is one the best Valentine’s day songs ever to listen to when Feb 14th pans out as another night home alone.
November Rain, Guns N’ Roses
The longest ever track coming out of Guns N’ Roses is also their saddest ode to love: not all stories have happy endings so you can sit back relax and appreciate life in all such sorrow.
When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
Chasing Cars, Snow Patrol
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
If only there was that special somebody that would lay there with you, uh? No matter how hard you try, finding ‘the one’ isn’t something anyone accomplishes quickly, so be patient and put this tune in your miserable Valentine’s day playlist.
The lone ranger songs
Easy Like Sunday Morning, Lionel Richie
You do want to go against everything and anything, that’s the spirit especially if you are single on Valentine’s Day. But just relax and listen to one of the best love songs on ever, it’s easy!
I wanna be high, so high
I wanna be free to know the things I do are right
I wanna be free
Kings Of Leon, Radioactive
One hell of a powerful rock ballad by the Kings of powerful ballads; it will keep your lone ranger mood up even on Valentine’s Day. Their sound is soothing and does make you want to step back and see life from another perspective.
It’s in the water, it’s in the story, of where you came from
Your sons and daughters, in all their glory, it’s gonna shape her
‘shut your room’s door , blast your speakers to max , watch the neighbours try figure it out’
For sure they will figure out love is not in the air for another year round as your Valentine’s Day idea of romance are the words from the lyrics of ‘Figure it Out’:
Nothing here to see
Just a kid like me
Colibria, Nicola Cruz
We said Lone Ranger, but there might be a chance the mysticism of Nicola Cruz’s video will hypnotize you and convert you into a softer version of yourself. Just listen to your senses while they catch all the unique sounds from the Ecuadorian producer.
The intro of this classic metal song will create the perfect atmosphere to celebrate your Lone Ranger identity this Valentine’s Day. We have really gotten you into the mood for pumping the speakers to max, haven’t we?
The pick me up playlist
Someone Like You, Adele
The worst is when you have just broken up with your ex and come Valentine’s Day, you are still single and no signs of any of your exes buzzing at the door yet. What should you do? Listen to Adele’s cry for attention, someone might actually hear you.
All Of Me, John Legend
Nothing is worse than going over all the amazing moments in a relationship when you break up with somebody. You have just been dumped and it happens to be Valentine’s Day, so embrace endless sorrow for the day and feel like new tomorrow.
Love the Way you Lie, Rihanna ft. Eminem
Meaning, if she has love problems, we should all shut up about it and instead of winging because our love story didn’t go as we planned, we should invest time in finding out more on the people we fall far, before it’s too late.
Back to Black, Amy Winehouse
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
I go back to us
Not your fault, you’ve been cheated on. Disappointment, anger, frustration won’t leave you alone: you are on a love standstill and can’t move on. Make Valentine’s Day your last of your Black days with Amy Winehouse sensational song.
Thank U, Next – Ariana Grande
How to better put it out there in a song? Ariana Grande’s biopic song is for sure one of the most inspirational ones to have in Valentine’s Day playlist. Just get over it!
Love birds playlist
Something, The Beatles
‘I don’t want to leave her now’
Must the best words a man can ever pronounce in regards to a woman. The Beatles’ effortless love song is made of simple lyrics while the music video features the Fab 4 with their respective lovers at the time in a natural sequence of portraits, conveying a general sense easiness.
Waterloo Sunset, The Kinks
Not just a matter of lyrics, although The Kinks went right to the point in these verses, it’s the whole sense of watching the world from inside that warms up the spirit, especially if you are trying to create a romantic atmosphere on a Valentine’s Day date.
Terry meets Julie, Waterloo Station, every Friday night
But I am so lazy, don’t want to wander, I stay at home at night
But I don’t, feel afraid
A Piece of My Heart, Janis Joplin
You two go back a long time, don’t you? Highs and lows, ups and downs, but on this Valentine’s day you are back together once again. Just let each other take a piece of your respective hearts, this time!
I want you to come on, come on, come on, come on and take it,
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby!
Oh, oh, break it!
Cry Me a River, Ella Fitzgerald
It was an impulse stronger than love to include in our rather ‘out of the box’ Valentine’s day playlist this sensual song from one of the best female voices of all time. This jazz song is perfect to have as your number one love songs for Valentine’s day.
