Spotify gets sexy for Valentine's Day

12 Feb 16

Spotify has jumped into the Valentine’s Day party and launched Love Notes, a tool that lets you compile a playlist for your boo, complete with hidden message.

To get started, visit Firstly, choose the romantic mood level of your playlist, from light and flirty to steamy and committed.

Next, pick up to three genres of music that you’d like to make up the playlist. Lastly, type the message you want to send (in up to 54 characters), and Spotify will generate an acrostic playlist, in which the first letter of each track spells a message for your Valentine. The corresponding playlist can feature up to 54 songs. Bam, romance.

Spotify has also revealed the top love songs in New Zealand and globally, including some surprises such as Bob Marley and UB40 joining the likes of Justin Bieber and Adele.
