A Playlist For Couples Who Have Been Together For A While

The following was produced in partnership with our friends at Spotify.

Greeting card holiday or not, your partner expects you to make some effort to show your love on February 14. If you’re stuck for a gift because your kid stole your idea of making a macaroni necklace, the very least you can do is set the mood with some good music. Fire up this playlist during breakfast in bed and again at dinner (in bed?) and, boom, you just pulled off a totally free, genuinely romantic Valentine’s Day.

To be honest, that’s (hopefully) all your partner really wants — a moment when the 2 of you take a few minutes to appreciate each other and the good thing you’ve got going (including the macaroni necklace stealer). This is the perfect soundtrack for that kind of moment, and you picked it all by yourself, you tenderhearted sonofabitch. Since that action speaks louder than any words you could muster, go ahead and push play and leave the lyrics to the professionals.
