Nothing says “I love you” like a good love song. Over the last few years I’ve been very picky in my taste in music, especially with love songs. Music is (one of) the most powerful and influential tools we have…I’m not really big on love songs, because I’m big on real love. There are a lot of distortions in our movies and music that depict love as pain or possession, and I’m not sure about you, but I’m good off calling in that type of energy into my life!
However, there are some incredible jams out there that capture a vibe for me…when I hear them, they make me feel like my lover is singing to me, or like someone captured how I feel about love.
This isn’t a knockin’ the boots playlist. There’s a bit of everything thrown in there: a little reggae, a little house, a little r&b. It’s a short list that I’m hoping to add to everyday, but it’d be selfish on this day of Love not to share it!
Some of these songs don’t depict love in its wholeness for me, but the feel good behind them still conjures up the energy of the type of love I think we all deserve.
Whether you’re celebrating Love today with yourself, with friends, or with a super special someone, catch a lil vibe with a few of these songs.
