Every month, the Forward Magazine brings you a selection of musical gems hand-picked by friends, musicians, speakers of the Forward Festival, and many more. This 46rd edition is a deep-dive into Valentine’s Day, from our lovely staff to you.

This Tuesday is all about love. Whether you love your friends, your family, your partner and/or (hopefully) your work, this playlist is for everyone who wants love today. One might say you will love us because we’re sharing our handpicked songs for this day and our very lovely followers. A few of our staff sacrificed some of their precious time to create this Valentine’s Press Forward. Today, for sure we are going to embrace this playlist with you.



We have covered a wide range of genres that will evoke emotions of any kind, but especially designed for every feeling connected to Valentine’s Day. Among the songs we have some love classics by Bruno Mars, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Rihanna and Enrique Iglesias for (hopefully) beautiful throwbacks. For our young at heart listeners we have some electronic songs like “Kyle (i found you)”, “Love Is a Bitch” and “Taint My Mind”. And what would a Valentine’s Day Press Forward be without some French love songs (la chanson d’amour) from our favorite artists like Angèle, Juniore and Françoise Hardy. We’ve put together the playlist to have ups and downs to make Valentine’s Day the best it can be, so we recommend listening to them in the right order.

We wish you all a very happy Valentine’s Day!
