The Perfect Valentine’s Day Playlist, Courtesy Of Lithe Audio
Desperate restaurant reservations. Queues outside florists. Profusions of pink. For those happily hitched to a significant other, Valentine’s Day is a time to step up your game in the romance department. But there’s a simpler way to show your affection, cliche-free. It’s called music.
It’s no secret that music has an emotive power superior to that of novelty trinkets. It has a way of hitting you, and your partner, right in the feels. Especially when your speakers have what it takes to broadcast that special song in all its glory. So with that in mind, we have another love-themed playlist for you to get the most out of your Lithe Audio ceiling speakers.
Alicia Keys - If I Ain't Got You (Official Video)
No, it’s not her real name. But that won’t stop your soul being transported from the opening bars of this piano-driven ballad. Lyrically, the track is all about the inadequacies of the material world, and how true love conquers all, or something along those lines…It’s a difficult one to sing though, so watch your vocal chords on this one!
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.
Ed Sheeran - Thinking Out Loud
Cliched in all the right ways, this love ballad about growing old with your loved one became an instant classic when it debuted back in the golden age of 2014. “And darling I will be loving you 'til we're 70” croons the UK’s most huggable popstar. Never change Ed, never change.
