First off—Happy Valentines Day from the Murfie crew! We love y’all!
In honor of this arguably tacky day, we thought we’d share some music that’s perfect for the occasion—whatever your plans are!
Lost Blues and Other Songs
“Will Oldham singing ‘It’s Valentine’s Day, and I’m catatonic’ is the perfect accompaniment to lying on the floor staring at the ceiling.”
“The title of the album is ‘Lovers Rock’. Need I say more?”
Music to Make Love to Your Old Lady By
“While the title and album art may be more of a joke than anything else, Lovage is a really cool one-off project by Dan the Automator (of Dr. Octagon, Deltron 3030, Handsome Boy Modelling School), Mike Patton (of Mr. Bungle, Faith No More, Fantômas), Kid Koala and others. Lovage is an excellent, unique combination of talents stitched together by Mr. Automator, and it’s great fun. Runners Up: Everybody Loves You by Kaki King, Loveless by My Bloody Valentine, A Flower is a Lovesome Thing by the Vince Guaraldi Trio.” —John
The Full Monty
“Whether getting ready to go out with friends or staying home with your sweetie, it is impossible to listen to Hot Chocolate‘s ‘You Sexy Thing’ and all the other great 70’s classics on this album without dancing or at least smiling.” —Tiffany
Boys & Girls
The Alabama Shakes
“Not only is this a fantastic rock album, but Boys & Girls covers the full range of emotions associated with love — from the simple, honest, and blissful ‘I Found You’, to the wailing, angst-ridden ‘Heartbreaker’. Top it all off with a track called ‘Be Mine’ and I can’t help but make this my V-Day pick!” —Leah
“Drake knows a thing or two about being extremely emotional.”
Bob Marley & the Wailers
“‘Mellow Mood’ is one of the best songs for romance. This album is perfect to listen to at home with your date or by yourself!” —Kayla
There’s always music to fit the mood. One of these picks might be right for you tonight! Xoxo!
