78 Love Songs for Marketing and Gifting

With Valentine’s Day in two weeks, it’s time to take some of the stress off and kill two lovebirds with one stone – so to speak. The winter holidays aren’t your only opportunity to create a themed playlist to play in your shop or office. Valentine’s Day is ripe for the musical pickings. If you did a search on the average person’s iTunes, I’d bet “love” would come up more than any other word in the titles. Of course, not all “love” songs are happy. “Love Stinks” likely would not be appreciated by a significant other on Valentine’s Day.

A playlist can serve multiple purposes. The most obvious is a gift for your sweetheart. But you can also print a bunch of CDs for your customers as handouts. You can easily design a CD cover with a free template. Be sure to include your company’s name, logo and contact information prominently on the cover.

Following are a whole lot of love songs to inspire your own mix. Please don’t hesitate to chime in with your own favorites.
