Happy Hearts and Happy Tunes for Valentine’s Day! Our Playlist

Today is the day to really enjoy some quality and sentimental time with your loved ones, and only the right music can set the tone for the blissful day ahead. We put together our favorite oldies but certainly beauties for Valentine’s Day– full of classic pop hits and soft tearful ballads from the 1950’s and 1960’s. Take a moment to find the nearest diner and enjoy some shakes at the countertop to share with your sweetheart, or even dance under the streetlights tonight, and whatever song happens to get stuck in your head, we hope it takes you back into an innocent moment in time where these songs sung true to the love you feel. From the Platters to Elvis and Betty Lewis, each song is a classic favorite for a reason. Let Valentine’s Day be another reason then to enjoy these singers to the fullest!

Our top 5 Picks:

The Platters, “Only You”

Only you can make all this change in me
For it’s true, you are my destiny
When you hold my hand I understand the magic that you do
You’re my dream come true, my one and only you

Sam Cooke, “Cupid”

Cupid please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Barbara Lewis, “Baby I’m Yours”

I’m gonna stay right here by your side
Do my best to keep you satisfied
Nothing in the world can drive me away
‘Cause every day you’ll hear me say
Baby I’m yours

Dusty Springfield, “I Only Want to Be with You”

Now, listen, honey, I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we’re together, honey, I don’t care
‘Cause you started something, can’t you see
That ever since we met you’ve had a hold on me
No matter what you do, I only want to be with you

The Supremes, “I Hear a Symphony”

Whenever you are near, I Hear A Symphony,
A tender melody pulling me closer, closer to your arms.
Then suddenly, oo, your lips are touching mine.
A feeling so divine ’til I leave the past behind.
I’m lost in a world made for you and me.

Mel Carter, “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me

Kiss me (kiss me), kiss me (kiss me)
And when you do, I’ll know that you
Will miss me (miss me), miss me (miss me)
If we ever say “Adieu”, so kiss me, kiss me
Make me tell you I’m in love with you

The Penguins, “Earth Angel”

Earth angel, earth angel
Will you be mine?
My darling dear
Love you all the time
I’m just a fool
A fool in love with you
