I thought I'd put together a mixtape of Valentines songs that hopefully aren't too mushy! These are all songs that remind me of my other half, so there is a bit of a mix in there... It's funny thinking about the music that provides the soundtrack to our lives. Jonathan goes through phases of getting a song stuck in his head and singing it over and over for up to weeks at a time, so these songs always remind me of him! I love remembering where we were when we heard certain songs - Haim makes me think of our first mini break together, listening to their album full blast in the car. The 1975 makes me think of our first gig together to see them, drinking alcopops and shooting the crowds with the GoPro. Get Lucky makes me think of the silly videos he used to send me when we were first dating, when he was OBSESSED with that song, and used to film himself singing it and send it to me!
