The Perfect Valentine’s Day Playlist - Courtesy Of Lithe Audio

 

 

When it comes to creating the perfect Valentine’s Day ambience, nothing sets the heart aflutter quite like romantic music. It’s true - even the most mundane of conversations can achieve an enhanced level of intimacy with the right melody to accompany it. Supplied with an active Spotify subscription and a decent set of speakers, anyone can become a silver tongued casanova.

To help give your loved one’s heartstrings a tender tug this year, we’ve compiled a playlist of tracks purpose-built for such occasions.

 

 

Berlin - Take My Breath Away (Official Video)

Big chorus. Big snare hits. Bigger hair. Expect nothing less from the 80s. If you don’t remember this track from the high octane Tom Cruise flick Top Gun, you’ll definitely remember it from every wedding karaoke session you’ve ever attended. Lyrics-wise, the song is a hymn to love’s deleterious effect on the cardiovascular system, replete with majestically delivered lines that make you want to perform extravagant hand gestures.

 

 

Elton John - Your Song (Top Of The Pops 1971)

When he’s not boogying or woogying, Elton John is crafting tender ballads like ‘Your Song’ - a beautiful expression of lovers’ gratitude. Sad in parts, uplifting in others, the sincerity of this track is mirrored in John’s unusually austere choice of sunglasses for the music video. The piano will always reign supreme as the romantic instrument par excellence, and Elton John is one of the finest exponents of it.

 

 

Adele - Make You Feel My Love (w/ lyrics)

Widely hailed as the ‘voice of a generation’, Adele earns automatic inclusion on any ‘most romantic songs’ list. The trouble is deciding which one to include. Like the Harry Potter series, each new album marks a new milestone on her path towards emotional maturity. But we’re back to the early days for this choice, with a stripped back version of Billy Joel’s ‘Make You Feel My Love’ more than sufficient for this list.

 

 

Savage Garden - Truly Madly Deeply

Here’s a fun Valentine’s Day game: play this track to your significant other and see if you can get to the end of it without hearing: a) statements to the effect that this is the ‘best love song ever’, b) enquiries as to ‘what ever happened to Savage Garden?’, and c) aspersions on the declining quality of pop music these days. Let us know how you get on!
