Valentine’s Day Playlist
To help your Valentine’s Day plans, Michael Toulouse created a list of music inspired by the Lover’s Holiday. You can read the full original article with Michael’s commentary on each piece here.
It’s Valentine’s Day! Light a fire, unwrap a box of chocolates, pop open a bottle of champagne, and cuddle with your sweetheart. Note that only one of those things requires the participation of another human being. And in that spirit, I offer a list bathed in the full spectrum of love, from the totally imaginary, to the tragically unrequited, to the ecstatically fulfilled, to the catastrophically extinguished. Some of these loves were concrete, while others were more abstract. But they had one thing in common: they all inspired great music.
