The Mega-Swoon Playlist: 19 Songs For A Steamy Valentine’s Day


Valentine’s Day is a polarizing holiday.

For the single, it is a day to feel inferior to the couples around you who have suddenly multiplied in number and whose social media activity becomes increasingly nauseating around this time of year. For the romantically engaged, it is a day to binge-eat chocolate that tastes ten times better because someone else bought it for you.

Regardless of your relationship status, everyone deserves a lil’ loving on Valentine’s Day! Here’s a playlist to get your night going — whether it involves hanging out with your significant other or kissing a few horny toads before you find your Prince (or Princess) Charming.
