Music is the ultimate way to express your love – from the age old act of serenading a conquest to more recently, making your Valentine a mixed tape. In the digital age, we now have streaming services to produce playlists for us, but you still might have your favourites which should be brought out on this special romantic holiday.
If you’re in need of a little inspiration when creating your Valentine’s playlist, here are some of the most popular and timeless romantic songs to choose from. If you’re looking to woo someone or need some background music to get you in the mood, take a look at our suggestions!
- Maroon 5 – She Will be Loved
Maroon 5 are known for their catchy pop-rock tunes, but it’s their first album which displayed some of their best love songs. The lyrics and soft melody of She Will be Loved make this a perfect track to add to your Valentine’s playlist.
- Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud
He’s one of the biggest stars on the planet right now, and Ed manages to melt hearts with every single one of his releases. Almost any of his songs can be called a classic love song, which is why you’ll often hear his music at weddings as the first dance. We’ve picked Thinking Out Loud as the gorgeous lyrics may portray everything you want to say (when you have trouble finding the words).
- Marvin Gaye – Sexual Healing
You can’t beat this one for heating up any date! With Marvin’s soulful vocals and the smooth sound of R&B as it was meant to be, Sexual Healing had to be on our list.
- Ellie Goulding – Love Me Like You Do
Ellie’s beautiful voice is sure to put you in a romantic mood! This easy listening song is also featured on the soundtrack to one of the most popular Valentine’s movies of all time, Fifty Shades of Grey.
- Aerosmith – I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing
If you’re more of a rock fan, then don’t worry – there are plenty of romantic power ballads from rockstars you can include too. Our favourite is Aerosmith’s I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing, which is delivered with such passion by Steve Tyler.
Don’t forget you’ll want state of the art speakers to play your romantic picks, with supreme sound quality for the most impact. Mymamu’s portable speaker is small but mighty, and sticks – so whether you want to start the playlist in the dining room, then take it up to the bedroom (or even the bathroom, it’s waterproof!) you can carry your music with ease.
