A local shop I walked past yesterday had its Valentines day advertising up – a sandwich board outside and the paper hearts still fluttering in the window – a whole two weeks after the date. People gave the shop front a second look; it looked out of place amongst the spring displays and chocolate eggs piling up in its neighbours.

These songs (like a huge number of songs) deal with love and romance in different forms. They discuss how hard it is to be without it over a retro-pop bounce, or how it’s fading, or how you find meaning in showing someone you’re there for them. There are also songs about only needing it from yourself and loving your own body, or realising it is in the end. How you can’t be friends. How you’re just being honest. Sorry.

It’s a reminder that people celebrate all types of love love every day in tiny ways. So be that shop and take the February Valentines sentiment into March as spring shoots begin to appear, people peel off their hoodies and go looking for it again. Listen to the playlist here.
