Need the perfect tune to get into the mood for Valentine’s Day? Adele has just the right song for you. Her cover of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” is the perfect love song, according to music streaming service Spotify.
The digital music service released three Valentine’s Day-themed playlists, featuring some of the most popular love ballads.
The first playlist is the top love songs in the U.S., which is based on tracks that have been streamed the most on February 14 during the past years. Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” claimed the top spot, with Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love” only coming in at second place.
For those who don’t have a date for the day, Spotify also has a list for them that is inspired by the fictional Bridget Jones. Dinah Washington’s “Mad About The Boy” is the top song, followed by Lily Allen’s “Littlest Things,” Celine Dion’s aptly titled “All By Myself,” and Gloria Gaynor’s super empowering hit “I Will Survive.”
Lastly, for the most perfect love songs playlist for Valentine’s Day, Spotify worked in collaboration with Jacob Jolij, an assistant professor in Cognitive Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of Groningen, as well as with Maureen Crowe, the president of the Music Supervisor’s Guild.
According to them, the formula that makes a perfect love song is composed of sentimental lyrics, slow tempo, syncopated rhythm, major key and standard chord progression.
The result includes some of the most popular love songs ever to be played, such as Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing,” Elvis Presley’s “Love Me Tender,” and The Righteous Brothers’ “Unchained Melody.”
