BY JUSTIN THOMPSON (’17)

Playlist 1: In Love

This meticulously crafted playlist includes only the best songs to set a romantic mood for you and your significant other. The original playlist was cut down so that only the best tracks were included. So don’t worry about the tunes this Valentine’s Day because I’ve got you covered.

“Ignition (Remix)” by R. Kelly

A thumping club tune that that is just as catchy today as it was in 2003. This song is still fresh out the kitchen.

 

“Cupid” by Sam Cooke

An old school classic. Sam Cooke’s velvety voice sets a romantic mood for you and your honey.

 

“Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye

If Marvin Gaye isn’t one of your Valentine’s Day staples, then you’re doing it wrong.

 

“Babe” by Styx

Styx was one of the biggest bands of the 80s and this song is one of their best. A beautiful rock ballad that adds something special to any V-Day celebration.

“I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston

One of the most covered songs of all time. The high notes in this tune are unreal and it might be one of the most beautiful ballads in popular music.

 

“Unchained Melody” by The Righteous Brothers

An all-time classic, this song oozes romanticism and this playlist would not be complete without it.

 

“We Found Love” by Rihanna

Rihanna’s longest running Number One single is a modern jam for any young listener.

“Hot in Here” by Nelly

One of the biggest hits of the early 2000’s, this club jam will turn up the volume on your Valentine’s Day celebration.

 

“Lets Get It On” by Marvin Gaye

This whole album is deserving of a spot on this playlist, but this song stands above the rest, an all time classic by a legendary artist.

 

“The Way You Make Me Feel” by Michael Jackson

Is a playlist without MJ a playlist at all? I don’t think so. This is MJ at this absolute best.

 

Playlist 2: Heartbroken

So you’re spending Valentine’s Day alone huh? Well don’t worry, this playlist can comfort you while you cry into your pillow and feast upon an entire box of chocolates.

“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” by Elton John and Kiki Dee

An upbeat little tune that is sure to brighten your day despite your aching loneliness. Elton’s showmanship is absolute gold.

“On Bended Knee” by Boyz II Men

Boyz II Men has a plethora of killer love songs, this one is a lovers plea to get his baby back. A classic.

 

“Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye

This 2011 smash hit details an especially nasty breakup. The perfect song to complement a broken heart.

 

“Grenade” by Bruno Mars

A song about a lover who won’t reciprocate Bruno’s undying love. A modern classic for your Valentine’s Day

 

“Yesterday” by The Beatles

This song goes perfectly with  a broken heart. A slow ballad by the Fab Four that is as sad today as it was in 1965.

 

“Someone Like You” by Adele

If you’re ready to move on from your breakup, this one is for you. Adele’s pump-up/love song will motivate you to find someone new.

 

“Maggie May” by Rod Stewart

This song is so fun that you hardly realize that Rod is talking about a lover who he really can’t stand.

 

“Can’t Hurry Love” by Phil Collins

A dance tune for all the lonely folks out there. The ex-Genesis front man does Diana Ross justice on this cover.

“Big Girls Don’t Cry” by Fergie

If you’re barely holding it together this Valentine’s Day, this song will get you through.

 

“Apologize” by Timbaland and One Republic

One Republic and Timbaland combine to provide a song for bitter ex-lovers. A song to cement any breakup.
