Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to create a romantic music playlist for someone you love. But with so many songs about love out there, how do you find the best songs for a Valentine’s Day playlist? Read on for some tips on how to find the best love songs for a Valentine’s Day playlist.
Google Keywords About Love Songs
If you do a Google search for phrases like “best love songs” or “songs about love” you will be directed to a multitude of love song compilation lists. If you’re looking for songs from a specific genre, specify that in your search (example: “best country music love songs”).
Check Your CD Collection for Songs About Love
Some of the best love songs may already be right under your nose. Look through your old CD collection to see if you already own some good love songs. Burn the CDs to your computer so you will have the songs in MP3 format.
Take a Trip Down Memory Lane
Do you remember what the song from your senior prom was? Or even more importantly, if you’re married, do you remember the name of your wedding song? (hopefully so or you’ll need to do a lot more than just make a love song playlist!) Romantic songs from special occasions are great songs to include on a Valentine’s Day playlist. Also, think back to songs that remind you of times you’ve spent with your significant other. You may want to check out soundtracks from movies you’ve seen together or try to remember songs you’ve danced to together in the past.
Purchase Love Songs from Music Download Sites
You can find just about any song you are looking for from sites like iTunes, Napster and Amazon.com. Can’t find a particular artist? Some artists have not inked deals to have their music available for download, so you may have to buy their CD in order to get a particular song.
