It”s Valentine’s Day tomorrow! This year I decided to prepare a playlist with my favourite love songs from the 1930s, 40s, 50s… They are sweet songs about how good it feels to be in love. That good feeling is what I wish for you this Valentine’s Day 🙂

What is retro glamour? For me it’s the inspiration taken from the past, a bit nostalgic, very polished, idealized even. Glamorous. But always fun.
Music has always been a big, big part of my life. I went to music school, I always dreamed of performing in musicals on stage, I love jazz. So in daily life I also look for this jazzy, retro touch in, well, everything. Especially music. Hence, this playlist. I’m not much of a Top 40 person, but I gathered a collection of tunes with that retro feel that I like listening to, and decided to share it with you. Please tell me what you think and give it some love on 8tracks!
