I have a huge reveal to start out this blog post. You ready? Are you sitting down?
I am an absolutely hopeless romantic.
….What, that didn’t shock you? 😂
I’ve always been a sucker for love, and this playlist is full of real romance: the light of first glances, the pull of memory, the angst of honesty. There’s songs about the terrifying magic of being completely yourself in front of someone (“Naked” by Ella Mai), songs about the way a real, supportive partner can lift your entire soul (“Natural Woman” by Aretha Franklin), songs about the vulnerable fever of wanting someone that isn’t good for you (“Stay” by Rihanna), songs about realizing you’ve found the only one that matters (“No One Else” by Amel Larrieux), songs about staying committed even when you’re scared (“With You” by Mariah Carey).
Be prepared to feel all the feels by the time you’re done with this one.
