You’re broke, and you have a date on Valentine’s Day. This date needs to go perfect. What should you get? Chocolates? A dozen roses? Wrong. You’re broke. Do you wanna know how much a dozen roses costs during the week of Valentine’s Day? The answer is a lot. I mean, you could sneak into your neighbors yard and get them from their prize-worthy rose bushes, but you don’t want your neighbors to hate you more, do you? So the solution: a Valentine’s Day playlist.
Think about it. How many people receive playlists as gifts nowadays? It’s a great gift for many reasons: it’s cheap, meaningful and ROMANTIC. Your significant other will humble-brag about you the next day.
So here’s a compilation of 14 songs you should consider for your brilliant gift on the 14th, or whenever you want…
400 Lux by Lorde
If you didn’t know, 400 Lux is how bright the sun is at sunrise and sunset. You can mention that to whomever you’re giving the gift, and they would probably be super impressed.
Simple Song by The Shins
Also a great wedding song, and also a great anniversary song. Don’t forget your anniversary… like, ever.
SO. GOOD. by Johnny Stimson
You don’t even know how many music blogs have called this song “SO. GOOD.” I would’ve already done that because my entire life relies on terribly thought out puns, but it’s been said and done.
Big Parade by The Lumineers
Out of My League by Fitz and the Tantrums
Feel Again by OneRepublic
got me goin by Paperwhite
Such an amazing track. I love how they sing to the beat without sounding like Miley Cyrus in We Can’t Stop. Besides, was I the only one that noticed that in her song?
Fall in Love by Phantogram
Feelin’ It by Ex Norwegian
Yellow by Coldplay
I Would Do Anything for You by Foster the People
Probably one of my top ten favorites songs of all time. I really like it, and hopefully your “babe,” “sweet pea” or “sugar pie” will like it too.
Everlasting Arms by Vampire Weekend
Bloom by The Paper Kites
Love Illumination by Franz Ferdinand
Just to freak them out a little you can also add Settle Down by Kimbra
