Two years ago I made a playlist in honor of Valentine's Day when I was writing on my personal blog. I actually enjoy making playlists because it pulls music from different genres and brings them to a totally different level. It's actually a pretty good playlist, which you can check out below: This year for Valentine's Day, I got the sudden urge to make a playlist again. Partly due to finding Jenny Lewis's Valentine's Day playlist, which can be found here. I really had a lot of fun with this one and pulled some older songs as well as some (more)

So it’s that time of year again where we tell you what we listen to and compile our favorites. I have to say (like I said last year) this list is hard to compile, and I barely just got it in.
