StabFM: Rosé And Roses Volume II

Make like a couplet, like two pairs of lips!

Oh, what hopeless romantics we are! We’re continually tapping at the veins of bleeding hearts, on the brink of insanity; searching for love in the deepest, sometimes darkest of places. But as they say, through darkness shines a light. Through light shines magic. And through magic gleams a guy or gal full and satisfied with, and by, their partner.

In the spirit of Saint Valentine and giving your smile to the one you love, we’ve compiled a list of songs for dinner tables decorated with white cloths and roses. A few songs to assist red wine or rosè sipping with your flavor of the week, month, year, or perhaps, your deep commitment to a roommate. Songs for the bedroom, the couch or wherever you happen to criss-cross your fingers, lay your head or, better yet, press bodies and lips together.

We encourage you to jump into your Spotify, Bluetooth this straight to your portable stereo and sip, whatever your poison may be, long and slow. In this edition of our occasional-whenever-we-feel-like-it line of Stabfm playlists, we present ‘Rosé and Roses Volume II’. It features two-and-a-half hours of our favorite love songs, and songs so beautiful we feel they represent the essence of love. If your night runs long and the playlist exhausts itself, keep those two hearts thumping with last year’s Valentines Day special, ‘Rosè and Roses Volume One’ found in the nether regions of Stabfm on Spotify.

This list highlights Lou Reed, Cloud Control, Destroyer, The Beatles, Big Thief, Dusty Springfield, Modest Mouse, Nathaniel Merriweather, Nancy Sinatra, The Zombies, Sugar Candy Mountain, The Liminanas, Connan Mockasin, a groovy little number by a band called Crazy Penis, Homeshake, Talking Heads, Tom Waits, Stevie Wonder, Leonard Cohen, Foxygen and so much more.

Hit play and help us, help you <3
