So you’ve packed the prosecco, chocolate-dipped strawberries, but forgot the music? We’ve got you covered! Or maybe you’re spending Valentine’s Day in your favourite coffee-stained trackies, Netflix on hand? No judgment.
Whether you’re in need of something sweet to share with the person you love, or a few songs to distract you from all those cringe-worthy Facebook posts, there’s something in our playlist(s) for you!
Hand-picked by our editors and made with love (or not), here are fourteen songs to either celebrate or denounce February 14.
Playlist: Valentine’s Day
From A-ha to Mallrat, you’re sure to fall in love with this tender mix of pop, rock, and even a touch of hip-hop! The Verse editors’ favourites include ‘Home’ for a rush of romantic nostalgia, and Al Green’s ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’ because it’s one of those few covers better than the original (don’t @ us).
Playlist: Anti-Valentine’s Day
Think roses smell like poo-poo-oo? We get you. Celebrate your own way with this energetic mix of what all the cool kids are listening to…ten years ago. A timeless blend that you can play year-round (because f*ck one-day celebrations, right)? Editor’s picks: ‘Roses’ (obviously), and ‘Wish You Were Gay’ because it’s 2020 and Billie Eilish is changing pop for the better.
