songs for valentine's day

Depending on your situation, 14 February is either the most romantic or the most awkward day of the year. And there’s a lot more to it than being single or taken; perhaps you’re in a fight with your significant other or just starting to see someone new.

No matter the circumstance, there’s a Valentine’s Day anthem out there for everyone—and we’re not just talking traditional love songs (though you can never go wrong with Marvin Gaye). From timeless classics to brand-new tracks, here’s your ultimate playlist for the holiday.
