Anti-Valentine’s Valentine Club

By Wilhelm Lichnock, Temple Coffee Customer Service Representative

I never understood Valentine’s Day. A day where we express our love and compassion for the people around us through cards, chocolates, balloons, and grandiose gestures. The rest of the year we force ourselves into an emotional stasis – only revealing our feelings in the most intimate settings. I created this playlist with the goal of expressing a type of love atypical for Valentine’s Day. No hyper-commercialized and marketed love, only love that makes you want to sit in the back seat of a car with someone for hours in silence just enjoying each other’s company. No frills, no giant teddy bears; just mutual understanding and respect for one another. This playlist is a reminder to love fully and unconditionally all year-round and not just on a day overrun by capitalism and heart-shaped foil balloons.
