Valentine’s Day is close and it is the most romantic day of the year. You get to prepare romantic presents for your SO, go to romantic dinners, or simply enjoy some time together with love. But no matter where you go, be it a restaurant, to the beach or staying at home, there should be some romantic music surrounding you. We all know that music simply sets the mood, and in order to set a proper romantic mood, you will need such a playlist. So, let’s see how you can create the ultimate Valentine’s Day playlist for you and your partner to enjoy.

How to Pick Romantic Music

Before we start, there are some tips on how you can choose the songs for your romantic day. If you plan on staying at home, you can create your own little playlist to set the mood. The songs from this list may help you a lot, but what you want to focus on is the music you both like. A good idea is picking a song that you both love and the song that is yours. Also, you should think about genres, you want something soothing and something that will spark a nice mood between the two of you.

Another option is going out for dinner if you want to have a romantic date. But before choosing the restaurant, see if they have some special music for that day. If you live in Miami, for example, you can search for restaurants with live music Miami and see which bands might be the most romantic. Nice jazz or blues might be just what you need.

But if you prefer to create your own music, here are some songs that may help you get romantic, so make sure to ready your Spotify.

Beyonce – Love on Top

This song is perfect for celebrating love. What makes this song so special is its joyful music and frequent key changes to heighten its ecstatic feel. And the most important and most romantic lyric here could easily be “nothing’s perfect but it’s worth it/After fighting through my tears and finally you put me first”.

Prince – I Wanna Be Your Lover

Prince definitely knew how to turn up the heat and be romantic and now we have his songs to set the mood. This song truly channels his pent-up frustration through the funk sounds of guitars, and it only brings more urgency to his plea and feelings.

Madonna – Cherish

This song is perfect if you feel like opening up to your partner and being gentle. This fizzy Madonna’s smash sounds playful, but the lyrics are romantic and about dropping your guard and being ready for real love. “So tired of broken hearts and losing at this game/Before I start this dance/I take a chance in telling you/I want more than just romance”. These lyrics nicely sum up the feelings and they may help you express yours on this beautiful day.

This song is certainly going to help you two relax and simply feel the love that you share, especially with the lyrics “I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in/I’ll never meet the ground/Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us/We’re far from the shallow now”.

John Legend – All of Me

John Legend might just be the most romantic guy on the planet, so why not borrow his masterpiece to express your own love. His song All of Me celebrates all the little things that make being love even better and sweeter, so why not show your true love how you feel with the lyrics “You got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down/What’s going on in that beautiful mind/I’m on your magical mystery ride.
