If you don't already know, one of the most iconic scenes in romantic movie history revolves around music as John Cusack holds a boombox over his head in Say Anything..., blaring In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel. Throughout the romantic movie Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, the two main characters are on a journey to find their favorite underground band’s secret show.
Although it’s not the “most wonderful time of the year,” love and music are in the air, and candy is on the shelves. If you’re looking for ideas on how to show your appreciation for your loved ones this Valentine’s Day, here’s an idea for you; make them a custom music playlist! After all, nothing says “I adore you” like Miley Cyrus’ Adore You.
The days of creating a mixtape for someone may be long gone, but luckily there are other ways to share this classic sign of affection. Many music streaming apps, such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play Music, allow you to curate playlists of your own.
If you want to show your appreciation in a more personal way, creating a song of your own is another loving gesture. There are many apps available for producing your own songs.
