Valentine’s day is coming and we want to celebrate it with this playlist about falling in love. Got the butterflies in your stomach when you see that special one? The rollercoaster of uncertainty. Is the infatuation mutual? That feeling of your heart dropping with one notification… If you want to revive those feelings, this is your chance. Press play and enjoy. At least music won’t ghost you.
1. Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) – Arcade Fire
Arcade Fire tell us the story of two teenagers that want to escape and plan their future together. The instrumental and vocals are full of nostalgia, especially considering the nature of relationships is so much different nowadays due to technological evolution.
From my window to yours
Yeah, a tunnel from my window to yours
You climb out of the chimney
And meet me in the middle
2. Warm Animal – Sure Sure
Enchanting lyrics and a groovy yet dreamy instrumental make this track perfect for a night out with friends or a romantic date with your partner.
I like the way you say my name, babe
And the way you wake up on a Sunday
Rolling around like two warm animals
I hope that you feel the same way
3. Ode to a Conversation Stuck in Your Throat – Del Water Gap
“I was seeing someone at the time who I really liked, and we had both been walking up to the line of asking the other to be with each other and no one else. Finally, we were sitting together one day and it got all quiet and she goes, “I’ve had this stuck in my throat all day…” And that was the start of our togetherness”
I used to call you my best friend
Way back before you were my everything
Now I’m sucking your neck
4. Take This Love – Brothers + Company
Do you miss that lovely feeling of a late night cruising with a special person? Brothers + Company bring us back to that special moment with a mellow indie-rock tune with infectious guitar riffs.
Driving with you in my car
I could get us very far
‘Cause all I want to do is put my arms around you
5. Habit – Still Woozy
Habit describes the feelings of uncertainty about the reciprocity of a love interest. Still Woozy has surrendered to this woman and wants to make her his habit.
I could let you have it
You could be my habit
You could be my woman, right
I don’t want you havin’
Anytime I know
6. Only for you – Heartless Bastards
If your heart is closed but you are willing to open it for one person, this song will resonate with you.
It’s been a while since I felt this way about someone
I’d really really like to know you more, know you more
Oh your eyes they sing a song to me
And I’d really really like to move to it, groove
7. 1st Time – Bakar
Do you know the feeling when everything makes sense? Sometimes we don’t understand events while they are happening but when we look at our steps in retrospect, we understand that this was meant to be.
The first time
I saw you in the sun, I nearly died
I told myself I’d have to sacrifice
That’s when I fell into you
8. No Love Like Yours – Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
If you’re into folk and hippie atmospheres, this one is for you. The catchy melody and good vibes will convince you that love is real. It’s time to open yourself a Tinder account… well… maybe Tinder is not the right app, who knows!
I always remember that you love me
When I leave my lonely body
I always remember that you need me
When I’m nodding off slowly
9. Channel Orange In Your Living Room – Charlie Burg
“Sometimes music feels liquid; it takes on both the shape and essence of the space in which it is experienced, and that is where it will live forever in one’s memory. When I listen to Frank Ocean’s album Channel Orange and I visualize a season or an age or a person, that’s going to be very different from what you see. This inherent shape-shifting quality of music fascinates me. I want people to hear my song and allow it to take the shape of their living room — which is to say their space.”
But now I can’t stop thinking about you
Each moment passes and my thoughts return to you
And the memory of us too
As we listen to Channel Orange in your living room
10. Bohemian Like You- The Dandy Warhols
We end this ranking with the now classic “Bohemian Like You”. The best thing about this track, in our opinion, it’s that it feels so raw and honest and free-spirited that it’s instantly likable. What do you think?
I really love
Your hairdo, yeah
I’m glad you like mine too
See we’re looking pretty cool, I’ll get ya
