I know, Valentine’s day is approaching faster than that credit card bill that always seems to be due the day before you get your pay check. Regardless of your plans this Valentine’s Day, you can make any date unforgettable with the right playlist. Which is why I have collected the best songs to play for any occasion. Whether you are making dinner or going on an adventure there is always a song to boost those romantic-vibes. So take your time, call your mom for that chicken recipe or that Can-Never-Have-Enough Red Velvet Cake, I got the music handled. Of course, I hope you add, “your” song to the list.
- “(They Long To Be) Close To” – The Carpenters
I admit, I recently became obsessed with this song. This is the whole reason for the article.
2. “Yellow” – Coldplay
Moving. Only way to describe it.
3. “Nobody” – Selena Gomez
This song is so strong Selena G. herself broke down into tears. A truly deep and powerful song. Definitely will send chills down your S.O.’s spine with pure-unfiltered emotion.
4. “Burning Love” – Elvis Presley
Instant memories of listening to this jam while my parents sang along. If they can still love each other after raising me, this was probably the key to their success.
5. “Her Eyes” – Pat Monahan
In my opinion, this is a song you want to have playing during dinner. Low key romantic and will take away from the serious conversation going on.
6. “Replay” – Zendaya
Hands down, one of the more emotional songs from Zendaya’s album. A strong beat, but still emotions run wild with this jam.
7. “Dreaming Of You” – Selena Quintanilla
My friends would never forgive me if I did not add this. Overloaded with emotion, am I right?
8. “Because You Live” – Jesse McCartney
Remember when Jesse guest starred on the Suite Life? Your girl does, trust me. You will get bonus points for this selection.
9. “Dreams” – The Cranberries
An easy listening song in my opinion. The perfect song to play in the car, after you pick up your S.O.
10. “Issues” – Julia Michaels
The song of the moment. Your S.O. will be impressed with how on trend you are with this collection of throwbacks.
11. “Black Velvet” – Alannah Myles
Let’s face it, anyone can be sexy instantly with this song playing in the background.
12. “We Found Love” – Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris
Take a break after dinner, and dance. It’s romantic and will create unforgettable moments. Plus the best song to play in the background when you take your video for SnapChat.
13. “Can’t Help Falling In Love” – Ingrid Michaels
Between this and the final song, they are tied for the song you want to end the night with. Beware, this song can bring tears. Tears from remembering all of those moments where you knew that this person was right for you.
14. “I Knew I Loved You” – Savage Garden
A classic song about how a relationship was foretold in the stars. Play this song if you believe you two are soulmates.
