Music is an influential force that can set anyone in a certain mood. Let these songs spice up your evening and help you and your partner get into THE mood.
In the spirit of the love month, we’ve turned to the number one music streaming service, Spotify, to help couples set up the perfect mood for love. Putting on a playlist may not be as suave and sly as listening to Marvin Gaye’s Midnight Love on a vinyl player, but still, it gets the job done. After all, perfectly timed slow-paced bass-heavy music is basically a declaration of ‘lovefest game on.’
While making your own playlist deserves a major brownie point, choosing a premade list from other Spotify users is a nifty idea. To help you set the mood on your next date, here are some of the best Spotify playlists that basically say ‘let’s get it on!’
