Valentine’s Day is officially here and you’re probably on your way out the door, heading to buy those last-minute gifts like flowers, chocolates, an actual gift – you know how it goes! But, if you decide to skip all of the mushy-love stuff and want to set the mood right (quiet night in with food … because who can hate on food?) an iconic love playlist is a MUST!

 

 

 

YouTube has pretty much done the work for you in terms of finding that perfect VDay jam.  According to Billboard, “Each Valentine’s Day, YouTube sees a big spike in views for many love-related tunes, as well as some anti-love songs. In honour of this year’s holiday, YouTube shared data on songs that, since 2016, have experienced the largest boosts in daily views.”

 

So if you’re deeply in love or you just went through an ugly breakup, below you’ll find a song for both occasions.
