February in Music: 3 Playlists for Different Valentine’s Days

Here at Gimme Some Oven, we never shy away from a celebration. Even if that celebration is fraught with complexity, controversy, and conflicting points of view. So, we’re diving head (and heart) first into February madness with three playlists for three different ways of celebrating Valentine’s Day
Love Makes Me Sigh
You are a romantic. You never pass up a swoony song, whether it reminds you of someone past, present, or (hopefully) future. You love everything about love, and you make the most of Valentine’s Day with treats, gifts, cards, and candy. Your not-so-secret dream is to serenade the love-of-your-life with a song like these…or be serenaded yourself.
Love Makes Me Cry
You’re a romantic, too, but your love story has turned tragic. It happens to the best of us, honey, and we’re here to give you permission to wallow. Turn the music up, sob along…then invite some friends over to commiserate. Maybe next year will be all wine and roses, but this year it’s wine and whine. And that’s fine.
Love Makes Me Say Why?
You’re cool with romantic love, but there’s so much else life has going for it. You use Valentine’s Day to celebrate the people you care about (friends, family, coworkers, strangers-who-will-be-friends-soon-enough) and big plans ahead. Your idea of a perfect Heart Day is a dance party—and everyone’s invited.
great playlists! i have to say that although you have one of my favorite break-up songs (“Love is a Losing Game”) you need and i mean NEED to add “It Makes No Difference” by The Band (The Last Waltz version if possible). omg, it is the saddest and most accurate break-up song ever. as one YouTube commenter wrote “this song makes me want a cold beer and a broken heart.”
