Somewhere in the middle ages a saint named Valentine was destined to glide through all of time as a marker of romance. His name today, globally commemorates love and gratitude. The history of Valentine is as complex as a Shakespearean play: catapulting between misinterpretation and dark realities. Nevertheless, love isn’t only neurons firing away dopamine molecules it is an integral experience of the human condition. Love is soft, love is hugging your friend in the most dramatic way possible every time you see them, love is a twisting thunder-storm inside your stomach after your first kiss and in a moment; love is forever. Here are a few mushy, sensitive and enchanting songs made by fantastic artists to conjure moments on love. Listen to them with tenderness and look out for the heart fluttering. ❤
