February Playlist & Weekly Wrap Up


We’ve had so much fun throwing ourselves with reckless abandon into the fun and craziness of Valentine’s Day. Everything has been pink, red, heart-covered and oozing the sort of happiness that only comes from taking the time to treasure the people and things that mean the most to you. And while the mood of the holiday is undeniably tinged with romance, Max, Amy and I have really enjoyed celebrating with friends and family in mind. Who says you have to dedicate love-filled songs to people you’re dating? Why not make a mix tape and dedicate those songs of happiness, excitement and good feelings to the people you call your nearest and dearest friends? I think everyone can appreciate the sentiment of any love song; it’s always about taking a moment to thank those who make you the happiest. So it’s with that spirit of celebration and cherishing great friends that we dedicate this month’s playlist to all of you. Our favorite 28 songs range from classic to contemporary, so hopefully there will be something in here for all of you. It looks like a lot of us in the Northeast will be snowed in this weekend, so if you’ve got any favorite love songs that we missed, we’d love to hear your ideas in the comment section below. I’m sure my cat will appreciate being serenaded to something new. (If you prefer listening on Rdio, our February playlist is right here and the track names/artists continue after the jump.) xo, grace

Awesome playlist again, I might have gone with The Flying Burrito Brothers instead of the Rolling Stones on Wild Horses but other than that perfecto!
