Valentines Love & Romance Playlists - what are your favorites?

February 14, Valentine’s Day, originated as a Christian feast day honoring one or two early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine. Through later folk traditions, the day has become a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and love.


Romance and love are more than just a feeling.  They are an action.  And while love and romance can be a candle-lit dinner with wine and roses or a hand-in-hand walk in the moonlight, they can and must be so much more. 


In a scene in the movie “Phenomenon,” Doc states George still has his love at his side because he bought her chairs.  Love is finding out what her “chairs” are and making sure she has them.  While it’s not always easy to get love “right” and there are always bumpy roads along the way, the importance is to try to stay true to the purpose of the journey, to be there, to care, to love.


Over the years I made many mixed cassette tapes, and eventually CDs for my wife, starting when we were dating.  They were a way for me to express my love when words just weren’t enough.  Back in the day it was much harder to do so, needing to mix songs from albums, 45s and cassettes coherently on a cassette tape.  The advent of music streaming and iTunes made it easier, but you still had to own or purchase the music.  Now with music streaming services, the options are endless.  So this week’s playlists are my ultimate playlists for romance - “Isn’t It Romantic,” love - “We Are In Love”, and lost love - “Lost Without Your Love,” for those who like to wallow in despair over love, those alone on Valentine’s day, or those who have loved and lost.

No Beatles songs? 


Here, There, and Everywhere

All My Loving


Two of Us

From Me to You

And I Love Her

I’m not a traditionalist, so my list would look quite different than yours🙂. It would have everything from The Beatles to The Moody Blues, Blackmore’s Night to Nightwish, and most definitely have Scorpions’ ballads! 😸


“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” - Jimi Hendrix

Agree this was a big oversight, especially since my favorite Beatles Compilation is "The Beatles Love Songs" which is hard to find digitally, used to have the old vinyl, people have put together playlists on Spotify to recreate the double album:


I will add several, though not songs that just have love in them, such as "All You Need Is Love", but more songs like "I Need You," "Girl," "Here, There, And Everywhere," "Something," "And I Love Her," "If I Fell," "Yes It Is," "Michelle," "It's Only Love," "You're Gonna Lose That Girl," "Every Little Thing," "This Boy," "Norwegian Wood," "I Will", "PS I Love You" distributed among the appropriate lists.  Thanks for pointing this out...
