So you have the flowers, the chocolates, and you are looking to create a romantic atmosphere for this year’s Valentine’s Day? Look no further than this post to help you set a romantic mood for your special someone by providing you with not one, but two soundtracks. So fire up your Spotify, Itunes or Youtube, and have a look at the following two playlists.

Valentine’s Most Popular

According to music streaming giant Spotify, these 10 songs featured most in ‘Valentine’ playlists last year. Looking through this list, you’ll probably raise an eyebrow or two in recognition, and there might be one or two you don’t recognise. That is, until you hear them.

Be Our Valentine

And although we suppose that the sounds of Savage Garden and Seal are inoffensive enough to have on in the background while romance happens elsewhere, our Operations Director Bas Gentenaar has put together an alternative. A soundtrack which might be a bit more of a challenge for those who don’t habitually listen to classical works, but give it a shot! Spanning about 300 years, this collection of tunes may work wonders for setting the mood and if not, it'll give you something to talk about.
