There's a song for that: Playlists to listen to on Valentine's Day according to your status

·3 min read

OH, VALENTINE'S day!

It’s that one day where boyfriends shower their girlfriends an abundance of gifts and love; where girlfriends trade their hormonal devil horns for an angel’s wings and attitude.

February 14 is a special day where flowers and chocolates are a tad overpriced, and single people are allowed to be extremely bitter-- or nonchalant!

In movies, scenes and emotions are much more felt when the music comes on and the lyrics just stab you right in the heart without any hesitation.

In this article, whether you’re single, taken, moving on, in a complicated situation, or hey, let’s be honest in a “beneficial” relationship with just a “friend,” here’s a list of recommended songs to listen to on heart’s day (or forever)!

IN LOVE

When you’re in love, everything just starts to make sense. The skies are bluer; life is better; and everything just seems clearer than ever!

Yo by Chris Brown

Lost in Japan by Shawn Mendes

pov by Ariana Grande

Your Universe by Rico Blanco

MORE THAN FRIENDS, LESS THAN LOVERS

Depending on your agreement with your “friend”, sometimes it’s a good thing, and other times, it’s not. There are certain arrangements where you feel like making another unattached mistake and well, there are unfortunate times where you can’t help but slowly fall for your partner.

Writer’s note: When you’re in a love triangle, just try to cut off the third party immediately. If you’re the third party, please do yourself a favour and remove yourself from the stressful situation. As Anna Shay from Netflix’ Bling Empire put it, “There ain’t no d*** that good.”
