It’s the beginning of February and we all know what that means – St. Valentine’s day is upon us. It’s the day that some of us just can’t wait to come. Everyone wants their share of romance, flowers and chocolates. Others however, are afraid of this day, and try to ignore it because of the fear of feeling lonely. For those of you who do care about this holiday, here are some songs to listen to during your Valentine’s celebrations.

Firstly, here are a few songs for those who will spend Valentine’s Day with their significant other and are wanting to create a romantic atmosphere by listening to love songs.
- “We Found Each Other in the Dark” by City and Colour
This is a very calm and beautiful song about love conquering all troubles. The kind of love people dream about. “So bright, the flames burned in our hearts, that we found each other in the dark”.
- “Stomach Tied In Knots” by Sleeping With Sirens
Sometimes you make mistakes and it’s important to tell your significant other how you feel. Perhaps you don’t want to lose him or her, and maybe you’d like to start over.
- “Shapeshifters” by Hands Like Houses
Song from an Australian rock band. Every girl will be so flattered to hear the words “You’re my muse and you’re my masterpiece, my canvas and my chemistry, my magic and my mystery”.
- “Jack and Jill” by Katie Herzig
This song title originates from the nursery rhyme:
“Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown, and Jill came tumbling after”
As you might expect from the title, the song is sweet with a catchy melody. So Jack, take your Jill for a walk and make her smile on this beautiful day.
- “Chocolate and Ice Cream” by Plumb
A song for all those who are so happy in their relationship that they can’t believe how lucky they are being together. “Oh baby, what we’ve got we could never imagine would be so great”. A nice song to dance and sing along to whilst getting ready for your date.
There may be countless love songs about affection and feelings for another person, but what about single people? Valentine’s Day should not be a sad day for all the people staying solo. The time has come for you to feel good about being single. Whether you’ve been through a rough breakup or you haven’t met your significant other yet, you shouldn’t be sad on Valentine’s day. Finally, you have time to spend with the most important person – yourself.
- “22” by Taylor Swift
Want to know a great thing about being single? Freedom. You have endless opportunities to go out, have fun and do crazy things. Just simply enjoy being young and reckless.
- “Miss Movin’ On” by Fifth Harmony
This song is ideal for ladies who have recently been through a breakup and want to move on with their lives. It’s all about gaining a fresh start, changing, and becoming a stronger person. You can overcome all the troubles and find out who you really are.
- “Love myself” by Hailee Steinfeld
This is a debut single that caused huge controversy as a result of its lyrics. People argued over whether or not the song had a provocative meaning or if it was simply about being self-confident and taking care of yourself. I guess you have to decide for yourself when listening to this song. All in all, being comfortable with yourself is a great message.
- “Move on” by Confide
Another song about moving on, but this one is for those who enjoy listening to post-hardcore. You should stop pretending, wearing a fake smile and start living your own life. Live your own dreams with people who truly understand you. “I just had to realize where my priorities lie. I’ll find out who really cares and I’ll make my way right there…”
- “Party by myself” by Hollywood Undead
And the last one is for every party animal out there – go and have fun and be crazy, even if you are all by yourself.
