J’ai Oublié Mon Coeur, roughly translated from the French, means “I Forgot About My Heart.”
This is a Dark Valentine’s Day playlist for the solitary types. I’ve never been a fan of playlists as a random collection of songs, so think of this list as a journey. Here we are exploring the dynamic of thinking you’re made of stone, but really, love shoots and shatters through your glass insides like a pinball made of steel.
Beginning with Dean Blunt’s “Papi,” we ask: How do you deal with someone who “brings out the best in you when human connection baffles you?” And then mire within that struggle until we figure out the path we’re willing to take to be open to “Affection.” How does changing inside for that one person reconnect you and make you “belong with everyone” again? Dark romances can blow up the heart you forgot you had; and really, that can only be for the better…
You can hit play and enjoy the list in its entirety here, or if you’d like to save this playlist for later — and get two extra songs that won’t fit on Indie Shuffle’s 10 song limit (The xx’s “Night Time (Synkro Remix)” and Anatomy’s “Burn“) — you can find it on my SoundCloud or YouTube account.
