The ultimate date night playlist


Whether you're coupled up, a single parent, or always needing to tick the "it's complicated" box, you gotta love Love

But as parents, spending most days cleaning up, organising, coordinating, and managing, romance might be the last thing on your mind. But why pass up the chance to celebrate? 

In honour of Cupid's arrow, we've put together a compilation of love songs, from the classics to the current; perfect for setting the mood on the drive out to supper or a night in.

And since there's a little something to serve all preferences, it's great for couples who don't exactly share musical tastes. 

Here's how a few Parent24 team members compromise on the playlist with their significant others: 

"I love classical music and low-fi, hubby loves hip-hop and old soul... and pretty much everything else. For beautiful afternoons with a glass of wine, we meet in the middle with some Dollar Brand, The Internet and old-school jazz. But he is coming around to Mozart, and I'm enjoying drum n bass too!" – Sophia Swanepoel, Parent24 editor 

"My fiancé and I have completely different tastes in music, so we actually have to take turns with the aux cable to listen to our own music on a night out." – Bashiera Parker, Parent24 content producer
