10 romantic songs to get you in the mood…

1. Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper – Shallow

From the romantic musical that made us all emotional, ‘Shallow’ had to be first on our list (we’re not crying, you are) 

2. Ariana Grande – Imagine

Ariana’s new pop single is a song about imagining what the perfect relationship would be like – a track filled with chilled beats and a lot of ‘aww’ moments 

3. Diya – Love Love

Diya’s dreamy pop song about love is a must for a romantic candle-lit ambiance – a V day essential 

4. Maroon 5 ft. Cardi B – Girls Like You

With Cardi B providing your dose of sass and let’s not forget Adam Levine’s smooth vocals, ‘Girls Like You’ is the catchy love song that celebrates women (and is one that won’t leave your head quickly!) 

5. YLD – Give Me Your Love

YLD combine bass, afro-beats and soul that elicits all those smooth, sensual feelings leveling with those of 90’s RnB 

6. Frank Ocean – Thinkin Bout You

Taking it back to the Spring of 2012, Frank Ocean’s Alt-RnB track had to be included for all its atmospheric goodness

7. George Ezra – Hold My Girl

What V Day playlist would be complete without Hertfordshire’s own romanticist George Ezra? Enough said 

8. Drake ft. Rihanna – Take Care

Again, a bit of an oldie but a goldie – ‘Take Care’ is the song to sway to as you make your V day dinner… chocolate dipped strawberries anyone? 

9. Pragya – Lingering Wine

Representing the LGBTQIA+ community, Mumbai based singer-songwriter Pragya provides a sensual, jazzy soul homage to same-sex love with ‘Lingering Wine’ 

10. Marvin Gaye – Sexual Healing

Finally, could we really leave this playlist without including the sex god himself Marvin Gaye? Dim the lights, light the candles and get your serenading game on!
