Playlist of the week: Evolution of love

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we can focus on how love is a recurring topic in many genres and how songs can work together to tell similar narratives. This playlist tells the story of love: catching feelings, internal struggles, admittance, reciprocation, feeling pure love and finally being comfortable with vulnerability. 

In a way, you can live out an entire relationship vicariously through this 20-song playlist, all in a little over an hour. We hope your Valentine’s Day is great, whether it’s spent with your significant other, friends or just enjoying your own company.
