After ringing in the new year, February brings one of the first major holidays of the year: Valentine’s Day. Some commemorate the holiday with a romantic night with that special someone or an act of courage towards their biggest crush. The holiday certainly brings no shortage of pink-and-red everything, a surplus of flowers and chocolate galore.

For others, the holiday is celebrated with a rapidly dissipating box of tissues and a binge of bittersweet romance movies to end the night.

Everyone has different ways of celebrating the holiday. Whether you have a special someone and big plans for Valentine’s Day, or plans to eat discount candy and sob to “The Notebook,” there’s definitely no shortage of love–and heartbreak–songs to get you through the month of February.

After a series of various random inquiries to school members, take a look at the third monthly-themed playlist to ring in whatever February brings.
