It has everyone you need to start feeling sentimental: The XX, Lana Del Rey, Arctic Monkeys, Chromatics, The 1975, and Rhye.

Bonus Spotify playlists from the author
We believe that Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to just enjoy life. Grab a glass of wine and get cozy while listening to something, that feels like it was made specifically for you. If you experience this feeling from listening to some band or a composer, hold on to them. This music is what makes you—you! It creates memories.
Having piles of playlists for any occasion, we thought it’s a perfect time to finally share them with someone. This is just a tiny but very precious part of them—5 playlists we’d listen to on Valentine’s Day and any other day.
This playlist just has everything and more. Firstly, because it’s hella big (almost 600 songs, and we believe it keeps getting bigger!). Secondly, because it’s just so full of not very popular artists, which is exactly what we’re looking for in a playlist that’s called “Psychedelic Soul”. Wonderful works by Cymande, Skinshape, Connan Mockasin, and Yellow Days will make your body move and evoke so many feelings at once.
Hello to all the lovers of the French language and music. We can’t even tell you how many times this playlist saved us from sadness! This selection features amazing contemporary musicians such as L’Impératrice, Kid Francescoli, and La Femme. With over 300 songs, you’ll definitely find at least one that’s gonna pour honey into your ears.
Don’t get confused by the name of this playlist. You won’t find John Coltrane here. It’s more like a famous YouTube Lofi hip hop radio by ChilledCow. This 350-items-long mix will become a perfect companion to help you relax or get focused with its chill instrumental beats.
High Fidelity Official Playlist
Not a typical Valentine’s Day playlist with Mariah Carey and Harry Styles, but it perfectly works for anyone who wants to spice up their collection. It’s perfect to watch the “High Fidelity” series before you listen to this one, in order to understand the context of each song. But even if you don’t, we’re sure you’ll find a couple of songs that will win your heart. The playlist has all-time favorites like Fleetwood Mac, Wings, Darondo, and Frank Zappa. Enjoy!
The sound of my soul
This playlist was born on a boring evening to gather all the songs that can make your heart tremble. It’s totally random in terms of genres but there never was a goal of making it a perfect two-sided cassette mixtape. It’s rather an all-in-one collection of favorite oldies and newbies.
Don’t expect to see Ariana Grande or Taylor Swift here. It’s more of an Otis Redding, Commodores, and Moby vibe. Does this make us sound like an old lady? Maybe. But today we come clean, dear readers, today we reveal our soul to you.
Having fun with it
The idea behind this playlist is very similar to that of the previous one. It’s a mix of multiple genres but with a slightly different mood. This playlist is likely to make your body rock in tune with the songs. Enjoy the miscellany of The Who, Pompeya, Chuck Berry, The Lovin’ Spoonful, DeBarge, and many more.
Making this selection of playlists for you was really fun! We got so inspired that we’re ready to make an even bigger list. Let us know what you think about this idea and what type of musicians you’d love to discover in the future. Have a lovely Valentine’s Day! ❤️
