Cary, NC – Just for Valentine’s Day, here’s a video playlist of love songs for your listening pleasure.
There are lots of songs about love. But for Valentine’s Day, the quality I’m looking for is smoldering.
Imagine a candlelit room. Imagine champagne. Now crank up the Valentine’s Playlist and use your imagination to fill in the rest of the details.
My playlist starts with Someone Like You from the Grammy-winning record of the year by Adele. Although it’s about a broken heart, it has that smoldering quality in spades.
Next up is Etta James with her classic version of At Last.
The third song on the playlist is She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5, covered here by Boyce Avenue with Tiffany Alvord. They do a beautiful job with this touching song (over 11 million views on YouTube).
Finally, one of my favorites – Madeleine Peyroux with Dance Me to the End of Love. Don’t know Madeleine Peyroux? The first time I heard her, I thought I was listening to Billie Holiday. She has that kind of voice.
