V-Day is just around the corner and Deezer has discovered what music is getting you lot in the mood with their Valentine’s Day channel. Apparently, men across the country are feeling classics like ‘You’re Beautiful’ by James Blunt and ‘Endless Love’ by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie, whereas the ladies are more into streaming Celine (‘My Heart Will Go On’) and Whitney (‘I Will Always Love You’). And it’s not just loved-up listeners getting in on the action; Deezer’s ‘Alone But Awesome’ playlist, featuring Taylor Swift and Birdy, has seen a 47% increase in plays in the last week.
As Deezer’s Global Pop Editor Dom Wallace said, “Music has such a powerful effect on our emotions and can intensify our feelings for others, whether that’s falling deeper in love, healing from a past relationship or just spending time with people who matter. It’s surprising to see how our playlist preferences change across gender, but it ultimately shows that no matter who we are or where we’re from, songs about relationships hugely resonate with us all.” And if you need a playlist for the big day, Deezer has gone and made one for you.
