Valentine’s day is, whether you like to admit it or not, something to everyone. You could be the hopelessly in love maniac buying flowers, chocolates and staying up late making the perfect track compilation; you could be the one who’s just been broken up with and you’re sewing up your heart while listening to Real Friends on repeat; or you could be the one eating your normal dinner, on a normal 14th of February not partaking in the commercial holiday that everyone has saved money for. It’s the time of year to scribble hearts and “I Love You”‘s in red, glitter decorated cards and music and their meanings become emphasised. That’s why we’ve made two whole Valentine’s playlists to fit your mood, or you know, just have as background music.
Our Pure Love Valentine’s playlist is mixed with some of the best love-song tracks that have captured our emotions and made it easier for us to talk. Including tracks such as Paramore’s ‘Still Into You’ and Say Anything’s ‘A Walk Through Hell’, this playlist has a little something for everyone or at least a few songs that will really hit you in the nostalgia feels.
Of course, Valentine’s isn’t the best of holidays for everyone. There are the people that have been left high and dry, and that’s why we’ve got this Pointless Valentine’s playlist that’s got a little more than pop-punk and a bit more punch. Including (a lot) of Taking Back Sunday and Neck Deep, we’ve thrown in a bit of Silverstein and Senses Fail to really liven up the angst this Valentine’s.
