Make everyone in the house happy with this list of upbeat Valentine’s Day songs for the whole family; including old school classics, country, and rock!
Have you ever noticed that so many love songs out there are downright depressing?
I suppose it just makes sense. It’s a time-honored tradition to write poetry (and therefore, music) in the throes of heartache. And there may be more people feeling down and depressed about love at any given moment than there are blissfully happy couples.
Let’s get real for a minute. Even happily married couples have heartache with each other every now and then.
But music is one of the best ways to set the mood, whether it’s for a party, or just for a day at home with the family. So, I’m always on the lookout for happy songs to fill our Sonos queue – even happy Valentine’s Day songs.
Add in the fact that we keep the music G-rated for our 3 little kids, and that can be a challenge! But we’ve managed to do it! Over the years, we’ve actually pulled together a list of nearly 60 Valentine’s Day songs for our annual playlist. Some of them are sappy, some are silly, but they are all happy.
