Love Songs That Belong On Your Valentine’s Day Playlist
Frank Sinatra - My Funny Valentine
It wouldn’t be a Valentine’s Day playlist without a song that references the holiday in its title. This crooner classic was originally written for a musical in the 1930s and became a jazz standard. Sinatra’s version became a hit in the 1950s, and decades later, it finds itself on every love-themed playlist.
Whitney Houston - Saving all My Love For You
Whitney Houston is one of history’s most legendary vocalists, and this soulful love song is one of her earliest hits. It’s hard not to feel an overwhelming sense of passion when hearing her beautiful vocals paired with the song’s stunning saxophone solo.
John Legend - All of Me
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are one of Hollywood’s most charming couples. In 2013, Legend wrote this track for his then-fiance, who he would marry that September. The song has since gone on to be a staple at weddings and love-themed celebrations.
Shania Twain - You're Still The One
This country ballad was written by Shania Twain and her then-husband Robert “Mutt” Lange. The song is an ode to everlasting love that defies the odds, and it’s a favorite among wedding DJ’s – especially when it’s time for the first dance.
Lionel Richie - Endless Love
This duet was so popular that Lionel Richie chose to record it multiple times: first with Diana Ross in 1981, and again with Mariah Carey in 1994. Billboard called the original the “greatest duet of all time,” and it’s not hard to see why.
Beyoncé - Drunk In Love
Want to spice up your Valentine’s Day playlist? Beyoncé released this track with her husband, Jay-Z, in 2013. The steamy lyrics describe an intimate scene between the married couple, and some lovebirds might prefer to spend Valentine’s Day the way Bey and Jay would.
Dolly Parton - I Will Always Love You
Whitney Houston made “I Will Always Love You” an international hit in the 1990s when she recorded it for “The Bodyguard.” Two decades earlier, the song’s writer, Dolly Parton, released it as a bittersweet country ballad. You may prefer Parton’s stripped-down version, or Houston’s power ballad rendition – either one should be welcomed into rotation on your playlist.
Frank Ocean - Thinkin’ Bout You
Frank Ocean is one of the last decade’s most popular new artists. The indie-R&B singer already has two Grammy Awards and a dedicated fanbase. “Thinkin’ Bout You” is a heavenly slow jam about realizing your feelings for a lover, and it’s the perfect contemporary addition to a V-Day playlist.
