Tune into the Spirit of Love with The Amor Playlist
Can you feel the love in the air? Or are you feeling more of love’s stings?
Whatever the case may be for you this Valentine’s Day, one thing is for certain: music will always be there for you. That’s right, the most overlooked “bae” of all is here to stay, and we’ve made the Amor Playlist to cater to all emotions tied to this year’s Valentine’s season. Cue it up for your boyfriend, girlfriend, or that big Galentine’s party you’re throwing for your friends!
A few of my favorites from this playlist include:
“Eres Tu” by Carla Morrison
This Latin Grammy-nominated indie artist has released numerous EPs since debuting in 2009 and averages two million listeners on Spotify. I love the easy going nature that lilts gently throughout her singing, which brings out my appreciation for the all little things in life.
“Get You” by Daniel Caesar (ft. Kali Uchis)
R&B sensation Daniel Caesar here collaborates with Kali Uchis, who grew up spending time between Colombia and North Virginia. It’s a perfect matchup of voices that spark magic together in this slow, sensual track.
“This Guy’s In Love With You” by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Bass
Interesting back story here: Herb Alpert, an American jazz musician, named his band name after an inspiring trip to Mexico where he saw a mariachi band playing during a bull fight. He loved the way the crowds fed off the energy whenever the band played music to introduce new sequences during the event. “This Guy’s In Love With You” was written in 1968 and reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 100; he has also recorded the song in Spanish and Italian.
