Valentine’s Day Playlists

If you’re working on your application (we love it if you are!), you probably need some music to power you through the process and the holiday. Even if your application is done and all you’re doing is noshing on chocolate hearts, a little music might be a good thing.

Just a warning: all the links take you to YouTube, so make sure you’re not blasting in the school library.

The Love Stinks Playlist

This list is for all of us celebrating the holiday by congratulating ourselves on how much money we saved by not buying roses or cologne. No worries: you can always fall in love with EWU.

We’re not saying we like all the music on this list. At least we wouldn’t say that publicly. But you know, maybe we listen to it sometimes. You know. Just ’cause we need it.

The So-in-Love Playlist

Happy Valentine’s Day! Some parts of this list are a bit less conventional or a bit newer, and some parts are downright cheesy, but love is special and sometimes cheesy, so your music should be, too.
